Year 6

Year 6 is an exciting, challenging and fast-paced environment: we are always busy! Our most important job is getting you Year 7 ready, so we focus on independence (particularly getting yourself organised) and resilience. Because of this, we have high expectations for your work in class as well as your home learning.

 

Weekly homework will consist broadly of the following:

 

1. Reading Plus for 15 minutes daily

2. Spelling Frame

3. TT Rockstars

4. SATs Companion (maths and English)

 

Our timetable stays very broad, so you will continue to learn regularly in all your favourite subjects. We have some excellent topics planned, for example: learning about the Amazon rainforest in geography; investigating the time of the Ancient Greeks in history and finding out all about the heart in science. 

 

Let's have a fantastic year!

After much deliberation, here is my list of must-read books for Year 6 children:

     

1. War Horse - Michael Morpurgo - Joey is a young farm horse, sold to the army at the beginning of the First World War. Through his eyes the reader experiences the devastation of the Western Front, his capture by the Germans and his entrapment in No Man's Land.

2. The Witches- Roald Dahl - Real witches disguise themselves as lovely ladies, when secretly they want to squish and squelch all the wretched children they despise.

3. Matilda – Roald Dahl - This modern fairy-tale with a brilliantly inspiring young heroine is one of Roald Dahl's best loved stories.

4. The Secret Garden – Frances Hodgson Burnett - Recently arrived at her uncle's estate; orphaned Mary Lennox is spoiled, sickly, and certain she won't enjoy living there. Then she discovers the arched doorway into an overgrown garden, shut up since the death of her aunt ten years earlier.

5. Watership Down – Richard Adams  - Young rabbit Fiver is convinced that a great evil is about to befall the warren where he lives - but no one will listen to him.

6. The Arrival – Shaun Tan – In this fantastically illustrated book, we follow a young man as he packs his bags and leaves his family to go and start a new life in another country. We experience his journey, his struggles to communicate, find accommodation, a job and food.

7. Oliver Twist – Charles Dickens - The story of the orphan Oliver, who runs away from the workhouse only to be taken in by a den of thieves.

8. Skellig – David Almond - Exploring a ramshackle garage with his new-found friend, Mina, Michael discovers a strange, magical creature.

9. Treasure Island – Robert Louis Stevenson - Pirates- a treasure map- a lonely island - and young Jim Hawkins in the thick of it all!

10. Goodnight Mister Tom - Michelle Magorian - Willie Beech, a lonely and deprived child, is evacuated to a tiny English village just before the Second World War and finds himself living with reclusive widower Thomas Oakley.
