Welcome to the section of the website all about the final year of the Junior School. It’s a wonderful year to teach because the children retain a sense of wonder and joy in their world but have grown a passion for changing things and for making a positive contribution to the lives of others and to life on this planet. Through our curriculum in Year Six and through our teaching about Rights and Respect, we believe that we help the children to become ready to take their place as Global Citizens and to be ready as individuals for the next step in their personal lives, namely the transfer from Primary to Secondary school.
With Armistice Day in mind, we have been writing our own war poetry.

Year Six children started their Maths learning for the year by exploring the Fibonacci sequence.They learned where the sequence can be observed in the natural world and how we can represent it using concrete resources, diagrams and algebra.
The children have also been exploring their Maths targets for the term and making choices about where they will use “Deliberate Practice” to learn new ideas. See the link below:
Year Six Homework
Grammar Spelling Bug – learning and practice. This should not take you long and you can split it over a few days. The website will remember where you stop each time and it will tell us how brilliantly you are doing. www.bugclub.co.uk
Spelling Shed – There is a list ready for you to practise and play. This should take around 15 mins each day. https://play.spellingshed.com. If you have a personal list from Mrs Nash then you will see that as well as the main list. It will be great if you do both.
Maths – Times Tables practice using Times Table Rockstars https://ttrockstars.com/
Reading – 15 mins reading and discussing with an adult at least three times a week and then reading by yourself the other four days.
That should keep you busy and enjoying your learning. Remember that you can also use www.mymaths.co.uk for any DELIBERATE PRACTICE if there are things you want to improve upon or gain more confidence with before we look at them in class.
