Welcome to Year 6
Mrs Baxter and Miss Doyle are looking forward to a busy term catching up after lockdown. We would like to emphasise how important attendance is particularly following the past year. Being in school every day is vital for Year 6 children to avoid missing important topics as there is lots to learn before moving to high school.
Our main topic this half term is, ‘Global Trade’. Throughout this topic, children will find out about goods and services which are imported and exported and the countries involved. They will look at locating places on different maps; identifying climate features of the places as well as looking at the importance of Fair Trade.
Our Science topic is ‘Light’. We will explore the way that light travels, how it helps us to see and different functions of the parts of the eye. We will also look at weather creating shadows and the speed of light in lightning.
We hope you are ready for your final term of hard work at Leamington. Year 6 is a very challenging (but rewarding!) year.
Some important information for Year 6 is:
- PE will take place every Wednesday – PE kits must be in school every day please. This will allow us to complete other active lessons when possible.
- Children have logins to TTRockstars, Numbots and Mathletics and should access these daily at home.
- Home Reader books will be given out every Monday and should be returned to school to be changed every Friday. Children should read daily at home.
Year 6 teachers would like to encourage children to bring in water bottles and a piece of fruit for snack, if they wish.
