Year 6

Hello and welcome to the page for Classes 14 and 15

The teachers in Year 6 are Mrs Cassidy (Class 14) and Miss Richardson (Class 15). Our Teaching Assistants, Ms Clarke and Miss Evans support both classes.

Here is some key information about Year 6:

  • Our P.E. days are Monday and Friday. We need to make sure we bring our full P.E kits into school on Monday and leave them in school throughout the week. There may be unscheduled P.E activities that take place at different times during the week and we need our P.E kits ready so we do not miss out. Anyone with ears pierced will either need to take their earrings out for the lesson or cover these with plasters/micropore tape. 
  • Please send your child with a water bottle each day which is filled with water and ideally labelled. 

In Maths this half-term, we have been learning how to convert units in measures, perimeter, area and volume and ratio. We have worked on developing our strategies to solve problem-solving and reasoning questions and how best to apply our mathematical knowledge. We have also continued to practise our arithmetic skills. 

In English, we have read the text 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes. We have explored the meaning behind this poem and how figurative language is used throughout. We have also planned, researched and wrote our own report on crime and punish through history. We have looked at what has changed, what has stayed the same and when key advances in the justice system happened. 

In Science, we have learnt all about the circulatory system, what it does and why it is so important. We linked this to work on health and fitness, looking at why diet and exercise is so important and the dangers of smoking and alcohol.  We have also completed our DAart sessions where we learned about drug, alcohol and building resilience. The programme has allowed us to develop a range of knowledge and skills which we can use as we transition to secondary and beyond.

Next half-term, in Maths, we will continue to work on answering problem-solving and reasoning questions and consolidating our learning so far.

In English, we will be reading Kensuke's Kingdom and exploring the themes within this book and how it would feel to be washed up alone on a desert island. 

Our Geography topic will be about volcanoes and how they have impacted on the people living in Heimaey, Iceland. In Science, we will learn all about light, refraction, how we see and how mirrors work.  

As always, if you have any questions, please send us a message via Seesaw or come and see us. 

Many thanks, 

Mrs Cassidy, Miss Richardson, Ms Clarke and Miss Evans
