Welcome to Year 6!
Spring Term 2
Welcome to Year 6’s class page.
On this page, you will find our Year 6 curriculum map, which gives the overview of learning across the year; weekly homework; and any additional information we need to communicate with our parents.
This term our topic is 'Groovy Greeks'. Children will develop their knowledge and skills surrounding the Ancient Greeks and their civilization. We will read a range of Greek myths and unpick them together, as well as writing our own. We will also look at the Battle of Marathon which is one of the earliest recorded battles!
In Mathematics we will focusing on measurement, geometry, statistics and algebra. We will be teaching the children the skills required to enable them to apply their knowledge and understanding to a range of arithmetic and reasoning questions.
Homework will increase over the term to consolidate the children's learning in class and help them revisit specific topics as revision for the SATs in May. The Year 6 children will experience a broad and balanced curriculum throughout the year; it is an intense period of learning in which the children make huge leaps and bounds in their independence, progress and attainment which also readies them for their transition into Secondary School life.
Homework will always be handed out on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. Should you have any problems with your work there will be the opportunity to discuss any difficulties each Monday with your teacher. Please do not leave it until the day it should be handed in to tell us you did not understand it. Communication and organisational skills are the key to your continued success throughout the year,
If you would like further information about learning at St Peter’s, please visit the curriculum section of our website. If you would like to speak to one of the Year 6 teachers about learning, please do not hesitate in contacting them.
We look forward to teaching you this term and supporting you in all your activities and learning throughout the rest of the year; working together to celebrate your successes!
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs Walker and Miss Swanton.
