Junior School

Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!


We are so excited to start our new topics in January! In History, we are learning all about the fascinating Shang Dynasty! In Geography, our thought-provoking topic is called, 'Angry Earth' and we will be exploring our key question: Is it our responsibility to help affected countries and communities? In Science, we will be exploring our topic of Evolution and Inheritance and we will be designing and making moving vehicles in Design and Technology! 


 In our English lessons, we will be reading an exciting novel called Holes by Louis Sachar. Our English lessons will be based around the interesting characters and themes of this exciting story.    


In Maths, we will be securing our knowledge of fractions, decimals and percentages, shape, space and statistics and move onto algebra. We will also be continuing to develop our arithmetic and reasoning skills.  


Maths and spelling homework will be set and marked every Monday. We will also encourage you to read every night and take part in our Reading Challenge! Don't forget to learn all of your times tables up to 12 x 12 and log on to Spelling Shed and TTR on a regular basis.  


We are looking forward to working with you this term! Mrs Hay and Miss Tuck
