6C 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Year 6 and your child’s final year at Etchells!
Hello and welcome to 6C’s class page.
Our Year 6 team includes:
Miss Wilson and Mr Crompton (Class teachers)
Mrs Pollit (Teaching Assistants)
Miss Johnson, Mrs Keeling and Mrs Johnson (Learning Support)
This term we will begin our enquiry based topic- ‘Would you give your today for their tomorrow?’. This is a History based topic where we will focus on the World Wars and the impact of these on Great Britain and our local area. We will visit the local cenotaph and the Stockport air raid shelters. We will also discuss how refugee has been a common theme in Great Britain since before the first world war and how it continues to shape our society.
To fuel our children’s imagination and creative writing, we will be studying texts in a range of genres and by a variety of significant authors, beginning with looking at The Journey by Francesca Sanna. The children will explore real examples of effective narrative techniques and rich vocabulary, whilst being given the opportunity to write for a particular purpose. They will also be immersed into fictional worlds through drama - igniting curiosity, provoking enquiry and demanding critical thinking.
This year we will be focusing on securing the children’s understanding and confidence using formal methods for the four mathematical operations. The children will also be developing their mental arithmetic skills and will have lots of opportunities to deepen their understanding through investigation and problem solving work
