Year 6 Curriculum Information Autumn 2019 

                                                  We are back.

                                                 We are settled.

                                       Already working hard all day.

                                 Preparing for those special days in May!

You will be pleased to know that the children have settled very well in to their final year at primary school and have shown an incredible level of determination to work as hard as they can. We are very excited to be together again and it is lovely to see how they have matured since I taught them in Year 2.

Children will be given English and maths homework each week. Occasionally they will also have homework relating to another area of their classwork to complete. Please encourage your child to complete their homework and to read every night. 

Please visit our class page as often as you can as we hope to post regular updates of the children’s achievements throughout the year. If you have any concerns or questions about your child’s progress, please come and see us, we are always happy to speak to parents and carers. 

Happy times in Year 6!

Miss Nurse and Mrs Nugent.

Our class (school) value is ‘Understanding’. We promise to show each other understanding by supporting one another in everything we do. We have put together a display which highlights our commitment to our class value and indeed to all of our school values. We hope you have a look at it when you are in school.

An amazing art workshop for the children and their parents/carers:

The children have been learning about the current state of our world in geography lessons. They have shown a very keen interest in environmental issues and what is being put in place worldwide to improve the way we use our planet. As part of their studies, they have learnt about the underwater coral reef museum off the coast of Cancun, Mexico. The museum features concrete statues that house coral and is designed to attract divers away from the natural coral reefs. They used this to inspire their art workshop with Mr Ian Fennelly. Mr Fennelly ran an all day art workshop for each Year 6 class and parents/carers were invited to take part. Look at what they produced together:

 

Learning about our world:

First thing in the morning, several times each week, the children use their class atlases and iPads to complete a geography challenge. They work very diligently to complete the challenge during registration. A recent challenge required the children to name all of the countries found on the South American continent along with their capital cities. They also needed to locate them (from memory) the following week on a blank map of the continent!  It’s wonderful to see them developing independent geography skills that will support them when they move on to high school.

How many South American countries can you locate on blank map of the continent from memory?

Do not disturb, we are reading!

    

     

We are very fortunate to have a wonderful array of books in our class library and the children love sitting on the comfortable beanbags to enjoy their favourite books.

A trip like no other with Merseytravel and Merseyrail. :

We travelled by bus:

        

   We travelled by rail:

 

 

We travelled by Ferry:

 

   

        

     

   We were even in the Queensway Tunnel:

     

     

We learnt about keeping safe when travelling AND had lots of fun too.

          

         

   

We know what to do if we need help when travelling around Merseyside. We know how to travel sensibly on our own or with friends. We even know the history of the Mersey Ferry and the Queensway and Kingsway Tunnels. 

This was an amazing opportunity for our children to move around their city and region giving them confidence when using public transport. The trip provided cross-curricular opportunities linking English, maths, geography, PSHE and history. 

Many thanks to Billy and Tony from Merseytravel and Merseyrail, to all the wonderful bus drivers, train drivers and guards and Mersey Ferry staff who helped keep us all safe and to our own Mrs Ellison for arranging this amazing trip.
