Year 6

Welcome to Year 6! 


Miss. Parker, Mr. Killick, Miss. Holmes, Miss. Harrison and Mrs. Kassoum make up the Year 6 team and we are excited for the year ahead!  


In Year 6 we focus, work hard, and support one another to achieve our very best. Our main aim is for each child to achieve their full potential, both academically, and in the development of their character and personal attributes 


Practice until you get it right, then keep practicing until you can’t get it wrong.

Please find below some Year 6 expectations:


The children know how important reading is and we ask that they read each day for a minimum of 20 minutes. The children then need to record their reading on their class Padlet page. 


Homework will be typically be set on a Friday to be returned the following Tuesday. 

PE/Positive Impact

The children will have PE on Thursday afternoons and Positive Impact on Fridays. Children can come to school in their Edgewick PE kit on these days. 


Autumn 1

Our topic this term is 'Who Done It?'. 

We will be focusing on the justice system and how this had changed over the years. During this topic, we will explore: the changes in law and punishment from the Anglo-Saxons to now; how the justice system works today; the rule of law in society; taking part in fingerprint analysis; and holding our own mock court case! 


In Literacy, we will be further developing our individual writing styles to produce short stories, balanced arguments, and delving into some letter writing. We will be focusing on using powerful vocabulary and adding detail to our fiction writing that takes the reader on a journey. Alongside this, we will be looking at other writing features such as structure, formal tone, and cohesion. Across both comprehension and Literacy lessons, we will be looking at a variety of texts, focusing largely on 'The Graveyard Book' by Neil Gaiman and 'Holes' by Louis Sachar.  


In Maths, we follow White Rose Maths, where children have the opportunity to consolidate concepts and process and apply these to a range of different problems. In the first half term, we will revisit key areas including place value and the four operations, alongside consolidating our times table knowledge using TTR and '99 Club'. In addition to this, we will further develop our understanding of factors, multiples and prime numbers. 


In Science, our topic will focus around 'Light'! The children will develop their understanding of how light travels and how we actually 'see' objects and colour. Furthermore, we will continue to enhance our skills when working scientifically, using our knowledge to devise enquiries and plan fair tests.
