Welcome to Year 6

Welcome to Year 6 with Mrs Kelsall (along with Mrs Connolly, Mrs Houghton, Mrs Weir and Mr Fredrick!)

This is such an important and exciting year for you all and we are really looking forward to sharing this time with you.

Key Information For Year 6

  • HOMEWORK - Maths and English homework will be given out on a Friday and collected in on the following Wednesday.
  • Spellings will be given out on a Thursday and children will be responsible for learning key spellings.
  • Reading books are the children’s responsibility and they are expected to change them whenever they have finished reading a book.
  • PE Kits will be needed for PE sessions on Wednesdays and Friday - this is a vital part of the curriculum so children must ensure they always have the appropriate kit in school.

Autumn Term

Our history-based topic this term is ‘Why did the World go to War?’ We will studying both World Wars and there will be lots of opportunities to use both primary and secondary sources and provides the children with background information linked to Remembrance Day and the anniversary celebrations to mark the end of World War I.

In Science we will be finding out about ‘Light and Shadow’ and ‘Electricity’

In RE lessons we are looking at ‘The Five Pillars’ and finding out about the significance of Advent for Christians around the World.

We have a lot of exciting books to read including Private Peaceful and Adolphus Tips, both written by Michael Morpurgo (a class favourite).

Together we will celebrate your achievements, identify targets and areas for development, record your progress and encourage you to always try your best!
