Year 6 2017 - 2018
Year Six is not only a last chance to enjoy your time here at Belgrave but also very important in preparing you for your journey onwards and upwards to high school. It is full of challenges and excitement right from the word go, with the week long residential to Conway coming at the beginning of the Autumn term.
We have three key aims that underpin everything that we do throughout the year. These are to become:
Responsible Citizens Successful learners Confident Individuals
We also have key life skills that we work towards. These are:
Team work Communication Managing time and Money Problem Solving
Having these aims and key skills helps us to understand what our education here at Belgrave is really about and also ensures that everything we do will be relevant to life in the future.
For the first half of this term we will be continuing with our Mountain Environments topic, writing a story containing a flashback about climbing Mt Everest and then designing shelters for use in a moutnainous area.
In English, we will be looking at spy thriller writing, comparing a book and a film version of the same story, then writing in the style of Anthony Horrowitz. We will also look at a range of poetry including Haiku and also produce writing inspired by our end of term production - Ali Baba and the Bongo Bandits.
In maths we will be studying geometry including 2D and 3D shapes, we will look at how to work out the average (mean) and revise other topics covered this year.
Our science this term includes Animal Classification and Electricity.
Week beginning 16th April
Welcome back everyone - you all appear to be well rested and have made an excellent start to your final term here at Belgrave. This week we have been writing accounts of climbing in the Death Zone - above 8000m and looking at parallel and perpendicular lines in maths. In science we have looked at the five kingdoms that all living things belong to and the different ways we classify animals.
Questions to ask your child:
- What are the five 'kingdoms' that living things are split into?
- Can you see any parallel or perpendicular lines around the house?
- Friday 27th April - Here Comes Summer PTA event
- Week beginning 14th May - SATs week (more information nearer the time)
