Welcome to the Year 6 homepage. Year 6 is one of the most fantastic years and we have a lot to look forward to. In this final year, we will be working hard together to get ourselves ready for the exciting transition to secondary school. Alongside all the hard work, we can also look forward to the Christmas production, Shakespeare (it is our turn to shine Year 6!) and of course… school journey. Having had a week to get to know the children, I can already feel that this is going to be a great year and I look forward to continuing this journey with all 30 of them.

Autumn 1

Year 6 are starting the year by learning about the effects of World War 2 on Britain. Our core text is Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo which we will use to inspire our writing. We will be writing diary entries, setting descriptions and balanced arguments based on the characters and events from this war-time tale of two young evacuees. Year 6 will also be visiting the Churchill War Rooms to see Winston Churchill’s underground bunker!

In Maths, the children will consolidate their understanding of place value and learn how this helps them to read, write and compare large whole numbers and decimal numbers.  They will learn how to partition and combine numbers in different ways, which will expand their repertoire of calculation methods. They will further develop their understanding of fractions and continue to build on their skills in using the four operations to solve problems.

In Science our focus is ‘Light’. The children will be learning about shadows, how we see, how light is reflected and the phenomena of refraction through exploring, observing and conducting investigations.

In RE, we will be learning about the practices of Judaism. We will learn about the Mezuzah, the festival of Passover and the ten commandments. To help us to further understand how Jewish people worship, we will be visiting the Central Synagogue in mid-October.
