Year 6

 

 

 

Welcome to the Year 6 Class Page

 

 

Dear Children and Parents,

 

Welcome to the Class Page for Year 6.

 

We recognise that this will be a challenging but rewarding year for your child. We will be encouraging resilience, independence and being the best we can be, in a warm, caring environment. To make this challenging year successful, good behaviour will be paramount and we hope you will support us with this.

 

We are out in the playground every day before school. If you have any concerns, please Dojo us and we will get back to you. We encourage you to use this facility as a way of communicating with us. We will also use this as a way of sharing the children’s achievements with you.

 

We will be using this Class Page to show some of the exciting learning we have been doing. We will also share some key information, documents, homework and letters relevant to Year 6. We hope you enjoy browsing!

Overview of the Year

Raiders and Invaders

 

Who’s that waving axes and brandishing swords? It’s the Saxons invading Britain’s shores! Our Spring Term's work will be based around the Anglo-Saxon and Vikings. Children will study the books Beowulf and Anglo-Saxon Boy and use the themes of these in our own stories. They will write their own newspaper reports of the Viking invasion at Lindisfarne. 

                                                                

 

We’ll find out the reasons why the invaders came to Britain. Using online maps, we’ll identify the places where the invaders came from and locate Viking invasion sites. We’ll make Anglo-Saxon style weave in Design and Technology and draw figureheads for longships in Art.

Race to the Pole

Our Autumn Term's work will be based around the Arctic and Antarctic regions of our planet. Children will study the books Brightstorm and Shackleton's Journey and use them for inspiration in their English work.  

                                                                

 

This topic will teach children about a range of explorers, such as Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton. They will investigate characteristics and features of polar regions and will learn how to use six figure grid references, lines of latitude and longitude, the eight points of the compass and symbols to identify the geographic locations of the Arctic and Antarctic. Children will use their research skills to find out how polar oceans differ from other oceans and understand the impact that climate change has on our planet. 

 

Knowledge Organisers

Knowledge organisers are a summary of the key facts and essential knowledge that children need about a unit of work. At Hucknall National, they are a valuable tool and used in all foundation subjects.
