Mrs Joanne Steers
Y6, SEND & Inclusion Manager
Welcome to Year 6 and thank you for joining us!
Year 6 is an exciting year which holds lots of new opportunities and experiences for us all. We are looking forward to facing new challenges together and building on our previous learning, to help us achieve our goals.
In English we have moved on to studying a very thought-provoking book called A Story Like the Wind by Gill Lewis. This story is a moving response to the refugee crisis and it's a poignant story. The tale contains a mixture of current events and traditional fable accompanied by beautiful illustrations. Year 6 will gain the inspiration and ideas from this narrative to help then when writing Flashbacks and Newspaper reports, during this half term.
Multiplication, Division and Fractions are some of our current areas of focus of our Math lessons this half term. We are looking at multiplying and dividing strategies and then how we can apply this knowledge to help us when solving a range of problems with Fractions. We are enjoying studying this together as well using our knowledge to tackle the Challenge Cards located at our maths station.
Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed embarking on their first residential to Oaklands last term. They had so much fun rock climbing, gorge walking and canoeing. It has definitely been the highlight of this academic year so far.
Oaklands is an Outdoor Education Centre situated in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. The Centre is managed by Edsential, and owned by Wirral Council.
The three day residential is always a firm favourite of our Year 6 children, who not only benefit from a wide range of outdoor learning and new experiences, but who also make memories that will last a lifetime.
