English
 
During the autumn term, Year 6 will be studying some fascinating literature that has cross-curricular links with their History topic of World War II. 
 
We will be following the emotional journeys of Rose Blanche and The Boy In the Stiped Pyjamas whilst exploring themes of moral dilemmas, diary writing and acts of bravery.


Spellings
 
We have weekly spelling texts every Friday which concentrates on the Year 5 and 6 statutory lists, as well as other spelling patterns that the children need to be able to use.  Please see the statutory list below to see some of the spellings we will be focusing on throughout the year.


 

Maths

 

To begin the academic year we will be focusing on the Place Value of numbers up to 10,000,000.  Maths lessons are fun, engaging and they encourage children to have a deeper understanding of this subject, by allowing them to use reasoning and higher level thinking skills.

Pupils will be able to apply what they already know about this area to help them solve more challenging concepts, such as rounding and negative numbers.


 


Colomendy Residential
 
This year, pupils have a new and exciting opportunity to visit Colomendy - North Wales, for their school residential.
 
Colomendy is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in beautiful woodland with views of Moel Famau.
 
Pupils will have the opportunity to participate in activities which integrated into the stunning woodland, including a high ropes course woven amongst the trees.  There is also a purpose built watersports lake for raft building, kayaking and canoeing.
 
If you're interested in your child taking part, please see Mrs Steers or visit the School Office.
