Welcome To Year 6

Welcome to Year 6, the final chapter of primary school. A year of exciting opportunities, rewarding experiences and challenge! This is your year to shine. From sports competitions to SATs; cinema trips to Carol Concerts; school councillors and sports leaders; assemblies and masses to the final production, there is something for everyone in    Year 6. 

As well as reaching our potential academically, there will be plenty of opportunities to participate in key roles and responsibilities within the school that will equip you for your transition to secondary school. 

In Year 6 you will be expected to work hard but in return, you will be rewarded with many happy memories, lasting friendships, and an increased confidence to take you onto your next adventure.

What Are Year 6 Learning? 

 Caritas: Happiness is… 

This term we will be looking at recognising differences in ourselves and others, understanding the rights and responsibilities we have and looking at this in context of the morality we have to consider as children of God.   

English:

This term’s topic is ‘Being Human’.  Throughout this topic we will be exploring the differences of all of us and considering the rights and responsibilities that we all have. Our writing units include ‘Persuasion’, ‘Narrative’, ‘Discussion’ and ‘Narrative Genres’ 

Maths:

 At St John Fisher we use White Rose Maths to facilitate maths learning. The Spring Term comprises individual blocks of learning about a particular topic.  This half term we will cover area, perimeter, volume, ratio, algebra, decimals, fractions, percentages and statistics. 

Science:  

In the first half of term, we will be looking at the circulatory system, how we need a balanced diet in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle and other factors that can contribute to having a healthy lifestyle.

PE:

Children  will be communicating, collaborating and competing with each other and developing an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities. They will learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success through the study of Fitness Handball Hockey and Orienteering. 

Children will be offered opportunities to represent the school in sporting competitions.
