Welcome to Year 6!
Mr Schofield, Mrs Jepson and Mrs Thomas

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 Spring Term, our main theme is who are the Mayan? The children will be challenged to work out who these people were, where they lived, how they lived, why they were so successful, and mysteriously why they disappeared. We will use our art theme of printing to look at how they depicted themselves in wall art. Maths will be on decimals, fractions and percentages initially before moving onto measures including area and volume. We will be working exceptionally hard to apply our skills through reasoning and problem solving work. Through guided reading, we will be looking at the novel ‘Pig Heart Boy’ by Malorie Blackman. We will also be using this narrative in order to create a persuasive argument through our literacy work. In science we will be looking at Inheritance and Evolution, seeing how creatures have adapted to the wonderful world we live in
