Year 6

Miss Cooke

Welcome to Year 6!

I hope that you have all had a restful summer break and are ready for an exciting Autumn term!

Important Information

In May, Year 6 will sit the statutory KS2 SAT papers. The children will sit six papers in total: Maths (1 arithmetic, 2 reasoning), Reading, Spelling and Vocabulary, Punctuation and Grammar.

PE is on Wednesdays. Please ensure that your child brings the correct PE kit, which can be viewed here and does not have any earrings in.

Spellings will be given out on Friday and will be tested the following Friday. Weekly spellings include several activities to help with learning. I recommend to do one activity and one ‘look, cover…’ per day.

Reading is incredibly important, and is a gateway to the rest of the curriculum. Please try to read for at least 10 minutes daily with your child. If your child is an avid reader – here is a link to 100 recommended reads for your child’s age.

What are we learning?

In English…

In English, we will be reading ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ by Michael Morpurgo. We will write a scene of narrative and a non-chronological report.

In Maths…

In Maths, we will explore place value to 10, 000, 000. We will move onto the four operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division including mental calculations and formal written methods.

In Science…

Our unit in Science is ‘Living Things And Their Habitat.’ The children will describe how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including microorganisms, plants and animals. Furthermore, we will give reasons for classifying plants and animals based on specific characteristics.

In RE…

In RE, our unit is, ‘Life as a journey and pilgrimage’. Children will be given the opportunity to think about the idea that life is a journey and what it means to make that journey as a Christian. Children will begin to understand the concept of undertaking a religious pilgrimage.

In Topic…

In topic, our primary focus is History. We will explore ‘Why was the Early Islamic Civilisation known as the Golden Age?’
