‘Let it Shine’ –

  • This topic introduces the concept of light travelling in straight lines. It starts by looking at beams of light and how light travels to enable children to understand how we see things.  This understanding is then applied to the product of shadows and starts to look at how light is reflected.  The topic then takes the learning into the realm of coloured light and rainbows, using scientific skills to raise and answer questions.

Global Dimensions

  • These lessons are designed to help children recognise their contribution & responsibilities as citizens of our global  community and equip them with the skills to make informed decisions and take responsible actions.

    They will be given opportunities to: critically examine their own  values and attitudes; appreciate the similarities between peoples everywhere, and value diversity; understand the global context of their local lives; and develop skills that will   enable them to combat injustice, prejudice and discrimination.  Such knowledge & understanding enables young people to play an active role in the global community.

Homework

Homework will continue to be given out each Wednesday and MUST be completed and returned by the following Monday. This gives the children enough time to see their class teacher if they are struggling. The purpose of this work is to consolidate the learning from class and to prepare them for more intensive homework at high school. It is therefore extremely important that this work is completed. Any children who fail to bring / complete their homework on Monday will have to complete it during their playtime.

Children will have an independent reading book which will be brought home on a daily basis and MUST be returned to school every day.  Reading records will be given to the children for parents to fill out as and when their child reads during the week at home.

School Trips

This summer, Year 6 will once again be visiting Little Deer Wood in Mirfield where the children will take part in a variety of outdoor activities such as canoeing, orienteering, archery, bush craft and low ropes. The duration of the visit is two full days/one night.

Our end of year celebration for Year 6 will be a visit to Flamingo Land, where the children will have the opportunity to choose from a range of activities such as rides, splash zone, adventure zone and the zoo.

Year 6 Assemblies

Our class assembly will take place on Friday 12th and Friday 19th July.
