Welcome to Year 6 team. There are many different adults who can support you in Year 6, including Mrs Saville, Mrs Strathmann, Mrs Abbot and Mrs Haysom. We aim to develop independent learners who are ready for the next steps of their education so have lots of exciting experiences planned to help you make choices for yourselves and challenge your own thinking.
Our first learning journey is ‘Waterworld’, where we explore rivers around the world. We will immerse ourselves in this during our ‘River Day’ where we build rivers, explore filtration, build rafts and create our own drama using green screen technology.
We cannot wait to see just how creative you are when we work through our Monet art and will work as experts using water colours on canvases.
To develop our cookery skills, we will be creating our own pizzas and using our computing knowledge to design a website for our own pizza restaurant. We are very excited to have new Computer Aided Design software in school and will be using this to create plans for our textile work later in the term.
It is important to help you to develop leaderships skills, so we will be offering the opportunity for you to support younger pupils with their playtimes and pairing you up to support the very youngest children in school to develop their love of reading.
We also work hard in our core subjects and will support you to ensure that you can achieve your personal targets.
