Welcome to Year 6.

Miss Hickson and Mrs Black are your teachers in Year 6.

We welcome you to your final year at Bunbury Aldersey Primary school. Whilst we have fun and enjoy our learning we will also expect you to work hard and try your best. We expect high standards of work and presentation but are always available should you need to ask about anything.

New York and the United States of America

This term will be based on a whole school topic called ‘Cities’. In Year 6 we will be learning about New York specifically whilst also looking at American life and culture.

In the first week back, each class will have a Global and Rights Respecting week which will include a variety of exciting activities from art to creating our own class charter.

In English we will start by using the book ‘The Man Who Walked between the Towers’ to write in different genres. We will be focussing on writing a biography, a newspaper article, a non-fiction text and a narrative. Amongst other key texts, we will also look at the book ‘The Arrival’ which shows the story of immigration.

In our Maths lessons we will start with looking at number, looking at place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division before moving on to fractions.

Also, we will be investigating numerous themes throughout our topic from the Inuits to the Civil Rights Movement to Crime and Punishment to Immigration. Additionally, we will look at the Geography of America and in Science two main topics will be covered: Electricity and Animals including humans which will look at diet, exercise and the role of the heart.

We will also be looking at specific Rights of the Child which link to our topic:

Article 30: Every child has the right to learn and use the language, customs and religion of their family, whether or not these are shared by the majority of the people in the country where they live.

Article 2: The rights apply to every child without discrimination.

Article 37: Children must not be tortured, sentences to the death penalty or suffer other cruel or degrading treatment or punishment.

Article 22: If a child is seeking refuge or has refugee status, governments must provide them with appropriate protection and assistance to help them enjoy all the rights in the Convention.

We ask that you always have your PE kit in school as our timetabled days may change.

We are all looking forward to enjoying your last year as a primary school pupil with you!
