Year 6 2023 - 2024
Welcome to the Year 6 class page!
This year, we have lots of fascinating learning experiences planned for you which we're sure will make this year a great one. Throughout the year, there are lots of new things to learn so we will have to give 100% in all that we do. As the year progresses, we will continue to develop our indepedence and hopefully develop a growth mindset where we believe we can do anything we put our minds to.
We will be learning about Map Reading in our Humanities lessons. We will focus on Map Reading in the UK and the children will be able to locate key places on a map in addition to gaining an understanding of grid references.
In RE, we will explore the topic 'How do Christians Prepare for Christmas'. The children will be given the opportunity to think about Advent and why this is a time for preparation. The children will delve deeper into the themes of advent and consider key stories from the Bible.
We will continue to study one main book for our English lessons (all will be revealed) but we will also be reading a wide variety of other texts - both fiction and non-fiction - from across our curriculum to help strengthen our understanding in a range of topics.
Throughout Autumn 2, Year 6 will go swimming on Wednesday afternoons and also have their PE slot on Tuesday afternon for Gymnastics. Children will therefore need their PE kit on Tuesday and Wednesday. They can either wear their Bishop Martin PE kit to school or bring it and get changed before their session.
Homework is provided in books on a Friday and is due the following Tuesday.
Online homework tools: Maths is also assigned on MyMaths and weekly spellings are set on Spelling Shed. TTRS can also be accessed to support knowledge of times tables. Log in details for all will be found in your child's new reading record.
You will be able to find all of this half-term's knowledge organisers on this page, along with lots of other updates throughout the year! Have a look at our new Curriculum Map for Autumn 1 below for more information about what we are learning in school.
