Year 6

Here in Year 6, Miss Park is our class teacher and she has taught in Year 6 for 2 years. We also have Mrs Rose who helps us with our reading and Mrs Kingswood who helps us with our spellings. When Mrs Harrison isn’t busy cleaning, she helps in our class too!


During the autumn term, we are focussing on place value and the 4 operations in maths, practising our fluency with arithmetic questions. We also do daily problem solving and reasoning challenges.  In English, we are writing character and setting descriptions, non-chronological reports and doing a poetry unit.


As historians, we are travelling back to the Victorian Era and using sources of evidence to explore what impact the Industrial Revolution had on Britain. We will also be focussing on Black History Month and Mental Health Awareness Day in October. In geography, we are using our map skills to explore patterns of migration and trade. Our science topic is Light and then electricity. Every week we do a practical science experiment to master our scientific skills- it’s great fun!


When we do whole class reading every day and we are loving reading Cosmic by Frank Cottrell-Boyce who is taking us on a space mission. We then have the traditional novel “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens to look forward to. Strive for Five is also a great part of our daily routine which is when we read 5 times at home and get 5 dojo points!


Every day is a busy day in Year 6! We have a visit from Razzamataz Theatre Group booked to have an afternoon with a drama specialist plus, a Google Earth Virtual Day as well as interviewing a Carlisle United Football player to link with our P.E sport of football.


We have a very busy term ahead but we are looking forward to it!
