Year 6 - Puffin Class

Welcome to Puffin Class!

Welcome to Puffin Class!

 

Welcome to Year 6! We have a class of 28 students in Puffins class this year. This term our overarching theme is ‘Journey.’

 

Our obvious focus for the first half term will be on the upcoming SATs tests in the middle of May. Therefore our timetable will initially be weighted towards English and Maths. After the tests we will concentrate on the wider curriculum and other areas too. With this being the final term of the children’s time at primary school we will also be discussing the changes ahead as they transition to secondary education.

 

In Year 6 the children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and to challenge themselves in lessons, usually through differentiated work and outcomes. There is a demanding workload in Year 6 and expectations are high. Children are encouraged to take full responsibility for their own behaviour, work, homework, equipment and timekeeping in order to develop their independence and organisational skills in preparation for secondary school. Where possible, I aim to involve the whole class in decision making and problem solving opportunities, both in our classroom and when taking the lead across the school. Year 6 will continue to have extra-curricular responsibilities in the school this term.

This term our overarching theme is ‘Ancient Greece’. We also have our residential visit to Derbyshire to look forward to in March!

 

Our focus in English will initially be on non-chronological reports followed by looking at persuasive writing. Later in the term we focus on instructional writing and fables linked to Ancient Greece.

 

In Maths we will be learning about converting units (including metric and imperial measurements), ratio and proportion and algebra. Towards the end of the term the focus will be on decimals and percentages, and their relation to fractions, and area, perimeter and volume.

 

We will also work through further SATs practice papers this term in preparation for the tests in the middle of May.

Previous Year 6 - March 2023

We all had an amazing experience on our week-long residential trip to the Peak District and were (mostly) very lucky with the weather!  Here are some photos of the class taken during the week.
