Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

The spring term in Year 6 marks an important milestone in a Year 6's journey towards secondary school. During this term we will be looking at a number of new areas whilst continuing to build upon existing skill levels and securing those foundations that will enable children to move successfully onto the next stage of their education. 

In English, we will focus on writing in a range of genres; we will also use these genres when writing in other subjects. It is important that children can write in a variety of genre, being able to write with variation and adaptability so that they can communicate in the best way possible. Reading will focus on developing comprehension, inference, vocabulary and stamina.

In Maths, fluency, problem solving and reasoning will be the foundations of all topic areas. Children will be encouraged to be accurate but also to be able to understand and explain why answers are correct.

In PE, we will be improving our fitness through our weekly lessons and our regular newly-introduce 10 minute mile.

We will continue to develop our Spanish language skills.
