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.

This term our topic will be World War 2, looking specifically at The Battle of Britain and how this was a crucial moment in the history of the United Kingdom.

 

In Geography we will look at the distribution of the population across the globe and which countries have the largest populations.  This links to our maths where we will look at reading, ordering and rounding numbers up to and beyond 10 million.

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of term one in Year 6 will be the residential in late September, when we spend a week at the Conway Centre, participating in a range of outdoor and team building activities.

 

WEEKLY UPDATE:

This week: 18th - 22nd September

This week has been health week and we have been taking part in a range of activites to promote healthy living. We had a go on the 'Smoothy Bike' on Monday, took part in a dance workshop on Tuesday (thank you Joss' mum!), on Wednesday we planned our sports sessions which we will deliver to the rest of the year groups on Friday, and today (Thursday) we had a games session with coaches from Chester City Football Club. We have also been running a daily mile.

A big thank you also to everyone who came long to the Parents' Meeting on Monday.

Try asking your child...:

  • What is the 'mayonnaise' in a speech sandwich?
  • What different ways do we use negative numbers in everyday life?
