Year 6

Welcome to the Year 6 Home Page!


In Year 6 this term, our topic is around South America and the Amazon Rainforest. As a year group, we are really enjoying our current novel - The Explorer, which is linked to our topic. The children have been engaging with the story through their guided reading sessions and have got to know the main characters: Fred, Con, Lila, Max and the Explorer well - be sure to ask them about it! Like our novel, most aspects of the curriculum this term are linked to our topic. In art, we have been refining our skills in sketching and proportion to produce some excellent rainforest animals. While in science, we are looking at living things and habitats with an emphasis on microorganisms as we concentrate on developing and securing our scientific enquiry skills. In geography, we are looking at physical features and climate, using sources such as atlases and the internet to help them consolidate this understanding and improve their research skills. 

With SATs on the horizon, preparations to ensure that the children are happy and confident when undertaking these assessments have stepped up a gear this term. As a Year 6 team, we are really proud of the maturity and commitment the children have shown in response to this acceleration in pace and increased expectation across their learning in English and Maths. 

Thank you again for your continued support,

Miss Gunn, Mrs Horgan, Miss Mulcahy and Mrs Parker
