Year 6

Thursday 23rd September

Week 3


What an amazing week it has been in Year 6 this week! Here’s what we’ve been doing:


Maths: This week we have recapped the rules of rounding and have rounded numbers to any degree of accuracy. We have also explored negative numbers within the context of real life. Well done for all of your hard work in maths this week, Year 6.


English: In English, we have started writing our flashback based on ‘The Piano’. The description and language used by the children has blown me away! I can’t wait to read the finished pieces and I hope the children share their ideas with you at home too.


PE: We are completing our Outdoor Adventurous Activity unit in PE this half term and this week saw us working on our problem-solving skills with positivity and perseverance! I was so impressed with the fantastic team work as well as the resilience demonstrated by children.  


Well done for all your hard work, Year 6.

Week 2


Year 6 have had another busy yet fantastic week. Here’s what we’ve been doing:


Maths: In Maths this week, we have been continuing our place value topic. We have been ordering and comparing numbers up to ten million as well as working hard on our arithmetic skills.


English: In English, we have started our exciting new genre of writing: flashbacks. We have watched a short film entitled ‘The Piano’ and have explored the different techniques used in order to convey a particular emotion and atmosphere. We are very much looking forward to writing our own flashback pieces inspired by this stimulus.


History: This week we have continued our topic learning about Ancient Greece and have plotted key events on a timeline. Our knowledge of this topic is super – ask us something about it!


We have also celebrated our new year mass with KS2 this week. It was lovely to be all together and to be joined by Father Jonathon.


Well done for all your hard work, Year 6.

Week 1

Welcome to Year 6!

It has been lovely to get to know all of the children and welcome them back to school. We have had a great first week and the children have impressed me with their efforts and enthusiasm towards their learning.

We have started our ‘Loving’ topic in R.E and the children have enjoyed creating spiritual art. Year 6 have been busy learning about the Ancient Greeks and are excited to discover more about this fascinating period of history. In English, the children have been preparing to write their own poems.
