Year 6 - Giraffes


In Maths, we will start 2023 by developing our understanding of ratio and algebra. We will be applying our knowledge to solve a range of different problems.  To help your child make great progress in Maths, it is important that they are using their Times Table Rockstars account regularly to improve their recall of multiplication facts. 


In Literacy lessons, we will start the year by looking at a film clip called 'Alma.' We will work hard to develop our 'show don't tell' sentences and learn how to add a range of similes, metaphors and personification into our writing. We will then write our own Alma stories using the end of KS2 expectations in our writing. 


In Science lessons, we will be learning all about living things and their habitats. We will be undertaking an experiment to see what causes mould to grow more quickly. We will also be learning lots about animals and the different ways that they can be classified.


We will have two PE lessons each week- on Wednesday and Thursday. Children will need to come to school wearing their PE kit on these days. As well as our PE lessons, the Year 6 children are also invited to join Coach Sharon's boxercise club each Thursday. Please get in touch with the office if you would like your child to join.


If you have any questions, a member of the Year 6 team will be on the gate at the beginning of each day and at home time.
