Spring Term 1 - Ancient Egypt  1

The Year 6 team hope that all of the children, parents and carers had a wonderful Christmas and New Year break. This half term Year 6 will be exploring Ancient Egypt. Throughout our writing topic the children will be writing a poem, a story and a newspaper report. During maths each group will continue to secure their arithmetic skills and apply the four operations to a reasoning problem. In reading each week will focus on a new text type so that the children are being exposed to a range of genres to prepare them for their assessment weeks. 

Autumn Term 2 

 

This half term the Year 6 children will be learning all about a local study. The main focus of this study will be learning about Dovedale -Ilam. As part of their topic the children will be visiting Dovedale, working with a map reader and finally showcasing all their hard work with an end of topic quiz. The children will be learning all about the geographical features of Dovedale and they will also be learning about how to accurately read a map.

Welcome back!

The new Year 6 children have definitely impressed the Year 6 team in their first week back. They have been very busy already learning all about their new groups and their new exciting World War 2 topic. Over this half term they will be learning all about WW2 and how it helped shape Britain as we know it today. In Mathematics and Reading, each group will be precision taught by one of the Year 6 team. If parents/carers have any questions please come and speak to a member of the Year 6 team smiley
