Welcome to Year 6.

Miss Hickson and Miss Tucker 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.

Lest We Forget: World War One Centenary

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.”

This term will be based on a whole school topic called ‘We Will Remember’. In Year 6, we will be learning all about World War One.

During the Autumn Term, we will be using two main texts in English, linked to our topic of World War One, to write in different genres. We will be focussing on writing a newspaper article, a non-fiction text, a letter, a diary, a narrative and writing poetry whilst using other key texts as inspiration.

In our Maths lessons we will start with 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 causes of The Great War to famous battles and life in the trenches to the role of horses, to life at home. Additionally, we will look at the Geography of Europe and in Science two main topics will be covered: Light and Animals including humans which will look at diet, exercise and the role of the heart.

In the first week back, Year 6 will have a Global and Rights Respecting week which will include a variety of exciting activities from art to creating our own class charter.

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

Article 14: freedom of thought, belief and religion.

Article 24: the best health care possible, safe water to drink, nutritious food, a clean and safe environment, and information to help you stay well.

Article 6: Life, survival and development.

Article 38: War and armed conflicts.

Article 39: Recovery from trauma and reintegration.

Our autumn term topic web below provides an overview of what we will be learning across all areas of the curriculum.

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

Please do not hesitate to ask me if you have any questions!

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