Welcome to Year 6
Mr T Ellis (Y6 Teacher)
Mrs. D. White (PPA Teacher and LSA)
Year Six is the final year in Key Stage Two; we use cross-curricular projects in which subjects overlap to reinforce and compliment each other. Each project is planned carefully to meet the needs and capabilities of the child. We aim to develop the knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes necessary for your child's whole development. We embrace 'Learning Without Limits' where children are not put into boxes but are given the space to grow and to surprise themselves (and us) about what they can achieve.
Please visit our Blog for updates on all our learning throughout the year!
(Homework starts week ending 20.09)
Children will be expected to read 5x per week and evidence this in reading logs along with having a fluent understanding of X Tables up to 12X.
Homework will consist of a weekly spelling task and a set number of sessions on Rock Stars Times Tables.

Terms Three and Four Learning 2019-2020
For the next two terms our learning will be looking to answer the question: What is the Circle of Life? Our project will begin by looking at the main parts of the circulatory system, through the anatomy of both humans and animals. We will then be taking a closer look at the circulatory system through the inner workings of the heart; creating our own instructions for a heart dissection followed by completing a scientific practical! Throughout the term, we will be visited by fundraisers from the Bristol Animal Rescue Centre, then will be looking to organise our own Sponsored Dog Walk to raise money for animals at the Bristol ARC, using the knowledge gained from our Scientific learning to explain how our money may be used to support animals in need.
Terms One and Two Learning 2019-2020
During this term we will be looking to answer the question: What did the Ancient Greeks do for us? Our project will be learning all about the Ancient Greeks, mainly through the myths and legends that were created through stories told from that period. We will look to create a legacy project of a published book at the end of Term 2 to celebrate all of our learning.
As the oldest children in the school, our class will take on some exciting new roles such as Crew Leaders and Buddies for children in Year R. Stay up-to-date with all of our progress by using the class blog at the top of this page!
Terms Five and Six Learning (2018-19):
In Term Five we completed final revision in preparation for our SATs on the week of 13th May. We then explored our final learning project question of the year: Do we live in a fair world?
Our topic explored global issues of poverty and distribution of wealth. We used knowledge gained from research to focus on issues of poverty in our local area, particularly for children in the area of Weston-super-Mare. We worked with local charities such as Weston Foodbank to provide support for issues of poverty in our local area. As our final project we left a lasting legacy through artwork that will be shared with the Worlebury Community for years to come.
We also completed a fantastic end of Year Production ... THE X FACTORY!
