Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!
 
Welcome back!  Year 6 will be taught by Mr Leathers and supported by Mrs Ormond.  They will also have Mrs McGrath for two afternoons per week.
 
PE kits will be needed every Friday afternoon.
 
Please have a look at our exciting curriculum.  There is the long term plan so you can see what we will be covering in each subject for the year.  If you wish to see this in more detail, please refer to the Autumn Topic Planner which gives a more detailed overview for Autumn!
Year 6 have had an exciting start to the year! We have already had the opportunity to go on a  science trip to Birkenhead Park High School. The theme of the trip was CSI and Year 6 had to investigate a murder scene and, using all of the evidence, find the culprit. We all had a fantastic day and would like to say a big thank you to the staff and pupils at BPHS, as well as the police for making the day so memorable!
We like to use drama as much as possible to aid our learning within English lessons. We have been studying There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom as our key text and the class are absolutely loving it! We have been learning about the genre of horror within our reading lessons and have looked at fiction, non-fiction and poetry. So far, our written work has been fantastic and everybody has been working hard to ensure that they achieve their targets.
As part of our guided reading, we have been looking at the book 'Who Let The Gods Out' and specifically focusing on the character of Elliott and his relationship with his mum. We have dissected the text and spent a long time looking at the vocabulary used. Please see below for our predictions of what will happen after the first chapter.
Year 6 have already had a fantastic year of coding within Year 5 and are now developing those skills and using them with our Spheros within school. Each week the children have had to code and debug to ensure that different outcomes can be achieved.
