Year 6

Mrs Courtney-Smith

Welcome to Year 6!

Welcome back for another busy, but exciting, term! Summer term is always one of my favourites – especially when the weather starts to brighten up a bit! This half-term we will be completing our SATs (finally!) and we will also begin to enjoy our final few months in primary school. We already have a lot planned!

IMPORTANT REMINDER: KS2 SATs Week: Monday 13th May – Thursday 16th May. Children must attend school on these days.

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 a Wednesday. Please ensure that your child brings the correct PE kit, which can be viewed here , and check that your child is not wearing earrings.

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 ‘Skellig’ and be creating our own narrative continuation – including dialogue to advance the action alongside a non-fiction text.

In Maths…

In Maths, we will be covering the final aspects of the curriculum which are: ratio, proportion, converting amounts including problem solving and finally statistics. We will also be revising previously covered topics.

In Science…

Our unit in Science is a Biology topic: ‘Evolution and Inheritance.’ The children will learn about how plants and animals have adapted over time. They will also study the work of Charles Darwin in more depth.

In RE…

Children will deepen their understanding of the nature of God, by looking at His characteristics and His relationship with people. They will look at the similarities and differences between the names given to God by Christians and by members of non-Christian faiths

In Topic…

In topic, our primary focus is History this term. We will explore ‘Who were the campaigners for change in Manchester?’.
