Welcome to Year 6

Mrs McKevitt and Mr Owen are looking forward to supporting our year 6 children with their SATs this half term. These are not too far away now so we continue to emphasise how important attendance is. Being in school every day is vital to avoid missing important topics as there is still lots to learn before moving on to high school. Children will continue to practise their arithmetic skills, reasoning and problems solving, developing their reading skills and demonstrate their knowledge of SPAG.

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 ‘Living Things and their Habitats’. We will explore the six kingdoms of life and learn about Carl Linnaeus who created the classification system for animals. We will also investigate how microorganisms grow and thrive.

We hope you are ready for your final term of hard work at Leamington. We are so proud of you all already and encourage you to continue with the hard work and effort you are putting in. Year 6 is a very challenging (but rewarding!) year.

Some important information for Year 6 is:

  • Children have logins to Maths.co.uk, Maths Whizz and Spag.com and should access these daily at home.
  • Children should be revising for their SATs each night.
  • Home Reader books should be brought into school each day. Children should read daily at home.
  • Please ensure children have trainers or pumps in school daily so we can complete PE and outdoor, active lessons as much as possible. (PE kits provided in school.)

Year 6 teachers would like to encourage children to bring in water bottles and a piece of fruit for snack, if they wish.
