A Big Welcome to all of our new Nursery children starting their new adventure at Cranborne this week!

Welcome to Year 6

Each week we will be asking the children to summarise the week in three words.  Here goes:

Week 1 -

 

Welcome to the Year 6 homepage

We have lots of very exciting topics we are covering in the Autumn term...

 

 

English

We will be looking at biographies in the first few weeks of this term before moving on to study narrative.

We will continue to encourage children to vary their vocabulary and sentence structure by including subordinate and embedded clauses.

Please continue to encourage your children to choose books which will challenge them as this is the best way of exposing them to the type of language that they need to include in their own writing. 

 

6H - work we are proud of this week....

 

 

 

Maths

In Maths we will initially be revisiting some of the key concepts underpinning place value and all four operations.

Please continue to support your child's mental fluency by practicing times tables with them on a regular basis.

Please also make use of Mathletics to practise mathematics skills regularly. If you need log in details let us know. The link is below:

 

 

Science

Our current topic is Light.

The children will be revising their previous learning before completing a Dragon's Den style competition that will enable them to deepen their understanding and scientific enquiry skills.

PE

This term we will be covering dance and gymnastics in indoor PE and hockey and tag-rugby during outdoor PE.  Photos to follow.....

Topic

This term we will be comparing Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II.  We will be looking at the differences and similarities in their homes, reigns, families and lives.  To support our studies, we will be using a range of questioning and investigative techniques.

Towards the end of the term, we will be developing these themes by looking at the Commonwealth, immigration and the British Empire.  We will end the topic by doing a deep dive into the lives of Victorian children and looking at how their experiences contrast with our own.
