Manor Adventure 2018
Please click on the flag to visit our Manor Adventure page.
Welcome to an action-packed Year 6! With a visit from Jonathon's Jungle to start the year; our production in the Summer term; and our week long residential at Manor Adventure to look forward to, we hope to give our pupils some fantastic, lasting memories of their last year in primary school.
In Year 6, children hold many roles of responsibility. Huge congratulations to those who have earned positions as House Captains, prefects, on the School Improvement Team and School Council representatives. We know you will all do us proud throughout the year.
Alongside the curriculum coverage, we recognise that Year 6 is a year of transition with secondary transition and induction days throughout the year. Children will also sit the statutory standardised assessment tests (SATs) in May and part of our curriculum coverage will ensure children are well prepared for this week.
Autumn Term 2017
Throughout the Autumn Term, our Creative Curriculum topic is 'The Rainforest - Power'. We will explore the rainforest environment, plants, animals, tribes and the impact of deforestation. In preparation for our February Curriculum Evening, children will create their own rainforest masks as well as studying the work of Cornish fineline artist Jon Tremaine. We will also be putting our creative skills to use through computing by creating our own Wallace and Gromit-style stop-gap animations.
Continuing with our Rainforest theme, in English children will explore poetry and narrative as well as writing non-chronological reports based on their own fantasy rainforest creatures and taking part in a debate about deforestation.
In Maths, autumn term is all about the basics! We will be spending a majority of our time focusing on the four key operations, arithmetic skills and fractions.
PE will take place twice a week with Gymnastics and Frisbee our initial focuses for autumn term.
For any further information, please refer to our curriculum letters through the links below. Alternatively, we are always happy to meet in person before or after school or appointments can be made through the school office.
Spring Term 2018
Throughout the Spring Term, our Creative Curriculum topic is 'WWII - Is change a good thing?'. We will explore the impact of WWII on children and the changes which occurred such as evacuation and rationing.
We will begin our topic with a WWII 'wow' day. The day will allow children to take part in a range of activities including dance, art and cookery. 1940's dress is encouraged and we will hold a VE Day celebration during the afternoon. Continuing our WWII theme, children will look at people in proportion and use ModRoc to make WWII action figures and dolls.
Children will continue to be immersed in the topic throughout their English, learning about poetry, portal stories and writing diary entries and letters home.
In Maths, Spring Term sees us begin our revision period, allowing time for children to revise the KS2 programmes of study whilst applying their knowledge in worded problems and investigations.
PE will take place twice a week with rugby, dance and gymnastics being our initial focuses.
Summer Term 2018
Our theme this term is 'Is Change a Good Thing? (World War II). The children will be looking at the Axis and Allied countries, the causes of war and the reasons to/not to be evacuated. They will be using ModRoc to create their own action figures too.
After the SAT's tests we will begin rehearsals for our end of year production towards the end of term.
We will have our Science, ART, Sports and 'Just Dance' WOW days along with our trip to Manor Adventure this term too so there is a lot to pack in.
