Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!


Welcome to all our new Year 6 pupils - we look forward to an enjoyable and successful year!  We are delighted to welcome them into Year 6.

This term there will be a focus on PSHE, wellbeing and mindfulness, as well as English, Maths, reading and PE.  Our topic is “Groovy Greeks”, which is our History theme for the term.

Year 6 will be using The Shadow of the Minotaur, by Alan Gibbons, as the stimulus for writing this term.  The book is about a boy at a new school, who is struggling to make friends but his dad developed a computer game where he becomes the hero. This will be used to generate texts across a range of genres. 

Our focus this term in science will be circulation.  The children will learn about the human circulation system.  They will then move on to design their own experiments to study how exercise effects circulation.

In ICT, we will be investigating how websites communicate to each other and how IP addresses work.

You can support your child at home by reading with them at least four times weekly, practising any spellings that are sent home and helping them to complete any other tasks set, including their writing task.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.

Many thanks,

Mrs Goodsell, Mr Ward and Miss Young
