Year 6 Termly Newsletter

Autumn Term

This term is alway exciting as it is our first in Year 6 we will be all getting to know each other and the expectations for the year. 

In Literacy, we will be using the song "Titanium" to inspire a our story writing. We will also be working hard on building our SPAG knowledge. 

In Numeracy, we will continue to work hard on consolidating our number facts before adding to our knowledge of place value. We will then go on to look at the four operations as well as beginning our work on fractions.


In Science, our topic is Healthy Living and we will be exploring health in the human body with Mr Williams.  Healthy Schools Week is also this term when we will carry out further investigations.

In Computing, we will be really thinking about on-line safety and how to protect ourselves in the digital work, as part of this we will be heading to Safe Squad during Healthy Schools Week. 

In RE, we will be exploring the Old Testament of the Bible and the meaning behind a variety of verse and stories.

In Geography we will be learning about rivers and hopefully going on a field trip to the River Tame, which we have found out is the most polluted river in the world!

Finally, we will be making a start on our history topic for next half term with a trip to the Imperial War Museum North to look at the First World War exhibitions.

It's an exciting time to be in Year 6!
