Year 6 2019 - 2020

Welcome to the Year 6 Class Page

In Year 6, we strive to be the example to the rest of the school as we near the end of our final year at St. John's.

This Spring term our Topic is called 'Planet Earth'. This is a geography based topic focusing on lots of different areas of the geography curriculum such as learning about continents, countries, natural disasters, weather, lines of lattitude and time zones. Children will be encouraged to produce project type work and focus on presenting their work in different ways.

In English, we will be writing biographies and explantion texts with a focus on David Attenborough and animals around  the world. We will also be reading the novel 'Holes' by Louis Sachar.

In maths we will be covering a lot of topic based maths with a focus on reasoning and problem solving. As well as our daily drip of arithmetic skills! 


HOMEWORK - The revision guides will continue to be used each week - as we near SATs in May, these are crucial to help tick along the skills in reading, maths and grammar.

Please also see the new homework mat for this half term - a project on a country! 

Remember, Year 6 are in training for high school and standards are very high! We need to strive to be the best we can and work to our full potential!
