Welcome to Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

In Year 6 we consolidate previous learning whilst tackling new topics, all within our growth mindset culture and using collaborative learning techniques.

In History, we use the skills we have learnt to enable us to make comparisons of leisure throughout the 20th Century. We will then look at a local study of Trafford.

During our Geography topics we will focus on our local area using map skills and looking at Manchester Airport.

In Science we look at humans, particularly the respiratory system; light; sound; evolution and inheritance; and classification. It’s a busy year!

Throughout the year we take part in a range of sports: Lacrosse, Gaelic Football and Cricket to name but a few.

In PSHE we look at a number of areas within our Jigsaw scheme as the school follow the same topics in an age-appropriate way. We find the mindful approach helps us in so many ways as we use this scheme to help us to prepare for high school and for becoming well-rounded members of society.

In Maths we display our growth mindset to its fullest. We extend our learning in a number of topics such as negative numbers, decimal numbers, fractions. We also take on a range of new topics such as: algebra and statistics; formal long division; ratio and proportion.

We write across a range of genres including: suspense; persuasive writing; instructions; non-fiction; letters; biographies. We like to demonstrate all of our spelling and grammar learning within our writing.
