Welcome to Year 6! Year 6 will be exploring a wide range of interesting learning activities that will enhance their academic and social development. This is a very exciting, important and sensitive time for our students as it is their final year in primary school! In a few months time, our children will be sitting their SATs, looking forward to PGL and finally closing the curtains with their annual school play.
Our focus for topic sessions throughout the year will be: What a Wonderful World, Out of Africa, Time Travellers, They See Us Like This and Champions of Change. Our aim is to bring these topics alive through the three main art forms: art, drama and music.
We will be reading and exploring different stories such as short novels and picture stories where children will learn how to develop their writing and analytical skills. Children will develop their writing through the different writing styles such as first person narrative, non-chronological reports, persuasive letters and comprehension-based tasks.
In Science, children will be exploring a variety of topics, such as Rocks and Soils, Evolution and Inheritance, Electricity and Light and the Human body. Students will be partaking in different experiments and excursions to develop and extend their learning. They will be learning how to use scientific evidence to support and refute different ideas and predictions.
Most importantly, we at Jubilee Primary are championing the importance of reading in this academic year. With your continuous support, we are looking forward to getting our children to develop a love of reading. Reading records will be checked and recorded daily to monitor children’s reading progress. Homework will be given out every Friday and must be returned the following Wednesday.
We have high expectations of all our children as we look forward to a great and exciting year!
