Welcome to Year 6
Mrs. Baxter, Miss. Doyle and Mrs. Mckevitt are pleased with how well the children have settled into Year 6 and are proud of the children for trying hard to be in every day! Attendance is extremely important to avoid missing important topics as there is lots to learn.
Our main topic this term is map work in Geography, which will be taught alongside Kaspar (our novel for this half term). Children will explore a variety of maps using grid references and compass points to describe/ locate places. Children will explore a variety of maps and record information using: sketch maps, plans and graphs, and digital technologies.
Our narrative, Kaspar, The Prince of Cats will take us on a journey back in time to the Titanic. There will be many opportunities for independent research, drama and writing.
Our Science topic is ‘Electricity’. We will explore symbols used in circuit diagrams; complete problem solving with electrical circuits; discover famous scientists who have made advancements in how we live through the use of electricity and investigate sources of electricity.
We hope you are feeling settled in year six and continue to work hard to achieve all that you can in your final year of hard work at Leamington.
Some important information for Year 6 is:
- PE will be swimming this half term and take place every Wednesday – Swim kits will be needed and P.E. kits should be in school for other opportunities.
- Homework menus will be given out and dojos will be updated every Friday.
- Reading books will be sent home on a Monday and should be returned every Friday (Bring them in even if you are not finished).
- Spanish lessons will continue virtually every Tuesday.
Year 6 teachers would like to encourage children to bring in water bottles and a piece of fruit for snack, if they wish. In addition to this, as the weather draws colder, please ensure you are wrapped up warm.
