Welcome to the Year 6 Page! The Year 6 teacher is Mr Killick, with Mrs Rogers alongside, as well as Miss Roberts on placement. The work is getting harder in the run-up to SATs, however our topic learning continues to inspire and excite!
Our topic this term is 'China - The Red Dragon'
China is a fascinating place, with a huge range of history and mystery to explore. We will look at the Shang Dynasty, with its innovations and society, comparing modern life in life in ancient times. Our science will focus on animals, including a visit to 'All Things Wild,' to see how animals are uniquely suited to their individual environments, while in geography we will compare different landmarks and areas where animal habitats may be.
RE will assess types of religion in China at the moment, including Buddhism, Confucian values and the role ancestors and honour play in Chinese society. This also links to our class book, 'Spilled Water,' by Sally Grindley, which we will read and use as inspiration for English, as well as 'Mulan,' the book and the film, which will be a springboard for a variety of types of assessed writing in the run-up to SATs. Among many other topics, Maths will look at algebra and ratio.
PE and Modern Foreign Languages will be taught discretely. The Edgewick Prosperity Award will continue every Friday afternoon.
A few items worth noting:
- PE days are Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure your child has his/her full PE kit on these days. A pair of trainers on Monday will also help for the measured mile.
- Homework should be handed in by Tuesday morning each week.
- Your child will have the opportunity to change their home reading book on a regular basis.
- Our termly intervention is focused on spelling. There will be regular spellings to practice and patterns to learn.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.
