Welcome to Year 6 with Mr Farnham and Mrs Martin.
Year 6 – Summer 2023
Welcome to the final term in year six!
A term in which children will be getting themselves ready to transition to secondary school and hopefully make final memories of primary school which will last a lifetime.
In maths, we will start the term by learning about statistics; we will read and interpret a wide range of graphs and create our own. Following this, we have a unit on shape where we will explore angles, circles, 3D shapes and nets.
In English this term, we will be writing our own autobiographies, short narratives and poems. We will also end the term with reading and exploring the book 'Dare To Be You' by Matthew Syed.
We will also be starting our topic about light in science and our topic about coasts in geography. In computing, we will be learning about animations using Scratch, and we will be learning about Da Vinci and anatomical drawings in art.
In music, we will continue learning about and producing Samba music, and we will begin practising songs for our leavers' production!
Year six children will sit their SATs tests in reading, maths and SPAG on the week commencing 8th May.
PE days this term are Tuesdays and Fridays. On Tuesdays, we will focus on striking and fielding and on Fridays will be our Wild Tribe lesson with Miss Kee. The children will also have French sessions on a Friday afternoon with Mrs Kandes.
If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
