Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

Welcome to Year 6. This is a crucial year for your children in many ways. Not only is it their last year at Primary school with all that that entails, but they are preparing for the move on to High School. We hope that your child continues to develop the skills and attitudes to help them excel in their new school next year, and beyond.

We also hope to meet with you on a regular basis so that we can work together to help your child achieve their best.

Residential trip to Hothersall Lodge

In February we will visit Hothersall Lodge near Ribchester for our Y6 residential. We will look at a range of team / problem solving activities as well as outdoor / adventurous experiences for the children. The visit is very popular, indeed many former pupils still talk to us about it many years after they left.

Please see the link below to look at the Hothersall Lodge website so that you can see the sort of activities that the children will be doing.

Throughout the year we will work on the following topics: Rainforests, The Gunpowder Plot, South America, Slavery, Evolution and Inheritance and the History of Islam. Please see the link below for our long term plan.

Homework

Homework will be set on a weekly basis, and will consist of English and Maths activities related to our work in class, as well as Topic work related to the current topic.

We look forward to working with you.
