Welcome to Year 6!
Miss Watson, Mrs Jepson and Mrs Rowley

Welcome to Year 6, the final chapter of primary school. A year of exciting opportunities, rewarding experiences and challenge! This is your year to shine. From sports competitions to SATs; Life Skills; to our residential visit; Sports leaders to School Council; public speaking to the final production, there is something for everyone in Year 6. As well as reaching our potential academically, there will be plenty of opportunities to participate in key roles and responsibilities within the school that will equip you for your transition to secondary school. In Year 6 you will be expected to work hard but in return, you will be rewarded with many happy memories, lasting friendships, and an increased confidence to take you onto your next adventure. We look forward to welcoming you to our Year 6 team! During the autumn term our main theme is – Disaster, who was to blame? The children will be transported back to Victorian Britain where they will investigate what life was like for children back then, the jobs they were required to work at a young age, the schooling system and how it came to be accessible for all. Lastly – they will investigate the Huskar Pit disaster and find out how that disaster changed working conditions locally and nationally. To help them imagine what life was like underground, we will be visiting the National Coal Mining Museum where they will travel underground as well as taking part in many activities in our Victorian themed trip out! Also related to the Victorian era – our guided reading and literacy texts will be focussed around Berlie Doherty’s Street child, as well as Joey Burkishaw’s story of his first day of work. DT is also linked – with the children designing and making a crane that has a pulley system incorporated to help with the removal of miners from underground with Mrs Hepp of Hepp DT. Maths will follow our new Maths No Problem syllabus and this term will focus on place value and the four operations, as well as fractions, decimals and percentages too.
