Welcome to year 6!
Our first term in year six is going to be a busy one, we have so much to learn and so many exciting things planned. Our topic for this term is South America. The subject areas we will be covering are Geography and Design and Technology. We will be locating South American countries using 6 figure grid references. We will also be investigating countries in detail focusing on their physical geography and environmental regions. In Design and Technology, we will be creating our own carnival masks using a range of materials including textiles.
In Guided Reading, we will be reading The Explorer by Katherine Rundell. Why not see if you can borrow a copy from the local library to read along with? In our English lessons, we are looking at writing in a range of genres including adventure fiction and non-chronological reports.
In Maths, we will start by learning about Place Value and then developing our skills in using written methods in all four operations. Each week, we will have an arithmetic test so you can see how you are improving.
Your homework continues to be the same as last year; reading at least three times a week, practising your times tables via the Times Tables Rockstars website and learning weekly spellings. Later on in the half term, you will find out about extra homework to help prepare you for your SATs in May.
Below are the PE days for each class. You must have your PE kit in school for these days. We suggest you have them in school all week. Our PE this term will be Football and Basketball.

We hope you have a lovely Summer holiday and are looking forward to next year as much as we are.
