Welcome to Year 6!
Miss. Parker and Miss. Holmes make up the Year 6 team and are excited for the year ahead!
In Year 6 we focus, work hard, and support one another to achieve our very best.
Practice until you get it right, then keep practicing until you can’t get it wrong.
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; discussing important themes; 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 a newspaper report. 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.
In Maths, we will revisit the four operations and continue consolidating our times table knowledge. In addition to this, we will continue to explore percentages, fractions, and decimals.
In Science, our topic will focus around light! The class will have the opportunity to complete exciting experiments to support their learning.
