6W 2022 - 2023
Welcome to Year 6 and your child’s final year at Etchells!
Hello and welcome to 6W’s class page.
Our Year 6 team includes:
Miss Wilson and Mr Crompton (Class teachers)
Mrs Pollit & Mrs Keeling (Teaching Assistants)
Mrs Shakeel, Mrs H, Mrs Barker, Miss Aubery (Learning Support)
In Year 6 we follow a broad and balance curriculum, including learning in PSHE, RE, Art, Design and Technology and French. Linked through our overriding topic questions, which change termly, we will investigate several Historical and Geographical topics, including South America and The Maya civilisation. Alongside this, we will be learning about several Scientific topics, linked through our main themes where possible.
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. 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. We will continue to use Jane Considine’s' writing resources, including having immersion days and using sentences stacking. We will be preparing for the SATs Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (GPS) Test with twice weekly revision along with daily reading VIPERS to support our preparation for our reading assessment. We will have an ongoing class novel, which the children will select each half term, to continue to develop our love of reading.
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
If you have any questions or concerns please contact me on Class Dojo or please use the firstname.lastname@example.org email address and I will get back to you.
