Welcome to our page for Year 6 children!
Throughout the summer term our overarching theme is ‘Fair Trade’. Within this we will learn all about Fair Trade, the Maya, nature and the Amazon, as well as take part in our own enterprise project linked to our learning. Financial capabilities, teamwork, steps to wellbeing and project management will be amongst the skills we will focus on. Our teamwork and resilience skills will be further enhanced through our P.E (rounders and team games), re-development of our outdoor area and our Commando Joe missions. Learning about Relationships and Sex Education will include the human lifecycle, growing up, personal responsibilities and families.
In English, we will be learning about writing letters, non-chronological reports, posters, business plans and advertising campaigns. In reading, we will share 'There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom' as our class text. In Maths, we will hone all of the fluency and problem-solving skills we have learnt previously as well learning more about money, budgets, statistics and geometry. We will be focussing on key life skills which will support transition to the next stage of preparing for secondary school.
