Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!


Hello and welcome to our Year 6 page. The Year 6 team is made up of Mrs Lane, Mrs Finlason, Mrs Pomfret and Mrs Beresford. In Year 6, we learn about exciting topics through the 'Learning Challenge' curriculum. This half term our learning challenge is: 'Why is the heart the most important pump we own?'. Please find below our learning challenge newsletter for this half term, along with some informative videos to give you a snippet of some of the things we will be learning about. 


Pop back onto our page in the next few weeks and we will be able to share facts about our topic and pictures of us working hard to be the best we can be. 


If you have any questions or any recommendations of what you'd like to see more of, on our page, we would love to hear from you.

Why is the heart the most important pump we own?


Year 6 have been busy designing their own board games based on the circulation system. They have come up with their own concept, designed their game and then written questions based on the heart. They will then be actually making the game and swapping them within class so that they can play and evaluate eachother's games.

By the end of Year 6, all children should be able to read and spell all of the statutory spellings on the document above. You could help your child at home to practise reading them and practise writing them, before moving onto writing them in sentences.
