Year 6

Welcome to the Year 6 Home Page!


Spring Term

It has been a very busy term and the children have had some wonderful experiences:

  • Bridge challenges
  • Dance Through the Ages
  • International Day
  • Hammond University
  • Science Fair
  • Landscape paintings 
     

    In Maths the children have challenged themselves in algebra, measures, decimals, fractions and percentages. They are now diving deeper through developing their reasoning and problem solving skills to become competent mathematicians.

    In English the children have written some fantastic adventure stories and powerful poetry where they have displayed their use of figurative language. Their sentence structure is developing beautifully and we have introduced the idea of shifts of formality (ask them all about this!).

    International day was a roaring success and the exposure they had to different cultures produced some fantastic castanets, fans, proposals of marriage in the style of the Maasai tribe and impressive art work. 

    The science fair enabled the children to develop their enquiry skills and proudly present their projects to the rest of the school, parents and staff. Two children from Hammond were runners up at the grand final at Surrey University, something we are very proud of. Thank you to all of the parents that supported with this homework.

    We are now getting ready for Easter and are looking forward to showing our culinary skills in preparation for this wonderful family festival.
