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, we will be looking at light and dark for our science topic. We will look forward to undertaking lots of exciting experiments! Our main theme is Disaster - Who was to blame? We will be investigating a local Victorian disaster and linking this to local coal mining industry to help the children understand the context our class text is "Street Child". We will be looking at OS maps to explore the structure of the land in Silkstone in Geography. Maths will be focusing on place value up to 1,000,000 and then reinforcement of the four operations. We will be working exceptionally hard to develop our arithmetic, reasoning and problem solving skills. Literacy is based upon "Street Child" we will be exploring themes throughout the book and consider the point of views from different characters.
