 Welcome to Year 6!

In Year 6 this year, the children will be immersing themselves within our topics of:

  1. Britain after the 1930s (including World War 2)
  2. The Maya
  3. Evolution and Change

Over the year, the children will get to design Anderson shelters, create Blitz pictures and propaganda posters as well as make their own Maya headdress and research information for a fact file on various aspects of the Maya lifestyle.

We hope to develop the children’s geographic, historical enquiry, artistic and technological skills to allow them the freedom to enjoy their learning and experience a variety of opportunities for independence.

In Maths, we will cover all aspects of the Year 6 curriculum, to include amongst other things plotting co-ordinates and using vectors, learning basic algebra and investigating the relationships between fractions, decimals and percentages. This is in addition to applying their reasoning skills to solve given mathematical problems in a variety of contexts.   

The children will get to write in a number of different narrative styles: a diary entry about Ulric and the Tiny Crusader (a lonely blacksmith and his surprise visitor), a narrative description about Narnia, an emotive piece about the Piano (where an old man reminisces about his wartime experiences) and a flashback scene in Chaperon Rouge (a French version of Little Red Riding Hood).

Home learning

To deepen their understanding and to build on these creative elements in school, we have included several enrichment tasks in their new homework menu. Please take the time to support your child when completing their homework to share their excitement of this topic. In the Spring term, homework will be more geared towards the SATS and the children’s home learning will be GPS and Maths related. In addition to this, there will be weekly spellings and an expectation that your child reads every day. 

When you spend time with your child at home, please encourage them to broaden the range of books they read. We also thank you for your continued support and dedication in allowing the children valuable and additional reading time at home.

Our PE day is Friday and the children will be expected to have appropriate PE kit with them in school on that day.

The children are brilliant at remembering their PE kits but please remind them on their PE day.

If your child does not have a Salfords PE kit (as it is being ordered or has been misplaced), could you please try to ensure that blue or black coloured items of clothing are used.

Finally, we would like to thank you for the continued support you give as parents to our Year 6 children and Salfords Primary School. Our pupils try to show as many school values as possible on a daily basis because they aspire to be great role models for the other children!

If you ever have any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact either class teacher.

Thank you and 'Be your best'!
