Year 6 2021 - 2022
YEAR 6: MRS THORPE’S CLASS
AUTUMN TERM 2021
Welcome to our Year 6 class. A new school year has started and we are really enjoying being back together. This year, we have prepared a plethora of wonderful learning pathways with lots of enrichment opportunities, as well as carefully planned core subject delivery to ensure that we are are all moving forwards together in our learning journey
- Remember to log into Google Classroom to access remote learning, homework tasks and additional learning resources
- Please also remember to bring water bottles into school every day.
- Year 6 PE days are Wednesday and Friday - wear your school PE Kit on these days - don't forget your jumper and keep warm with dark joggers on those chilly days.
- Our Autumn Term Forest School Days are 9th September and 4th November.
This term, we will be learning about the Ancient Maya in our curriculum topic - we will be designing and building pyramids, cooking traditional Mayan foods, making Mayan masks, and lots more. Have a look on our Google classroom page for lots of links to find out more about this amazing civilisation.
In Maths, we will be begin by revisiting and reinforcing learning from Year 5 alongside introducing new learning. Our topics will focus on Place Value and the Four Operations (multiplication, division, addition and subtraction). Later in the term we will be learning about Fractions, Decimals and Percentages.
In English, we will be diving into the narrative world of The Watertower - a story rich in character, mystery and intrigue. Following on, we will be exploring the world of Quests as we create our own stories of heroes, journeys, battles and adventures. Reading and exploring stories in this genre will help immerse your child into this world - try out Lord of the Rings, Dungeons and Dragons, even Harry Potter!
In RE, we will be exploring Jesus' teaching about The Kingdom of God alongside the Church's teaching about Justice. Both very relevant and meaningly areas of learning for our young people in our world today.
Further details of our Year 6 Curriculum can be found below in our long term planning document.
I look forward to having a more face-to-face relationship with you all this year! I will be on the playground most mornings and afternoons are you are always welcome to contact me at school via telephone or via my email (email@example.com). I will always endeavour to get back to you within the same day.
Many thanks for your continued support,
