Teaching Staff in Year 6

Mr Dade (Writing, PE and Upper Key Stage 2 Lead)

Mrs Taylor (Teaching Assistant)

Welcome back - I hope that you had a lovely half term. The projects on the Maya were absolutely fantastic - thank you to everyone who completed this homework. 

I am really pleased with how the children have started this half term. The combination of hard work, exciting learning opportunities and the right attitude, will lead to every child achieving their full potential.

This term there will be a focus in Darwin Class on becoming responsible learners and citizens of our school. It is imperative we set the example in and outside of school. 

The class motto of 'Taking pride in everything you do' is something that everybody in Year 6 will show and try to fulfil in our everyday life.

In English, there will be a 'Talk 4 Writing' scheme of work based around some fascinating reading literature. 

In Maths, we will be starting on Fractions and then moving on to co-ordinates and translation. 

This year we have many interesting topics to learn about. There will be a real push on cross-curricular learning which will embed all the skill sets across the curriculum area. Please see our Curriculum map below for more information.

Every Friday, our class will continue with 'Hats on for Reading.' Children read a book of their choice whilst bringing in a random hat to wear and each week we will take it in turns to bring the biscuits.  

For homework, Home-Topic books will continue and the children can research a topic of their choice to write about each week. There is a focus on writing and high quality presentation but also the more creative, the better!

The rest of the homework will be online for MyMaths and Reading Plus. Spellings and Times Table tests will be each Friday.

Kind regards,

Mr Dade
