Year 6

Welcome back to school Year 6!

Term 1 – Sow, Grow, Farm 

As writers, we will be exploring the structure, organisation and content for non-chronological reports. We will be spending time to study key grammar, punctuation and features that are needed within the writing type. Then within our drafting and editing cycle we will use they key elements within our writing. We will then enjoy publishing our beautiful work.  Narrative will then be our next focus within our English journey; we will carefully explore techniques of including key characterisation, setting and atmosphere. 

As Mathematicians, we will be exploring key place value concepts to raising our awareness and understanding within our number system.  We will continue to build our skills within the four operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. During our five a day practice, we will continue to embed our knowledge and understanding of key facts – applying these to different arithmetic questions. 

As Scientists, we will be exploring the importance of plants and animal life cycles. We will focus closely on the different names of plant parts and the key stages within the life cycle. Exploring questioning and key knowledge will be valuable skills within our Science journey. 

As Geographers, we will be exploring inquiring questions and discovering about different land types within different locations. 

As Historians we will be ordering events within a chronological order and exploring historical enquiry. 

As Musicians, we will be exploring a famous musician and their impact on music today. 

Our P.E. sessions will take place on a Monday PM and the children can come suitably dressed in their outdoor PE kit all day on a Monday ready for these sessions. 

Reading is very important – please make sure that reading is happening everyday.

Any questions please ask.

Looking forward to an enjoyable, exciting first term back!
