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.

 

The summer term is always a busy one and this promises to be no exception with many exciting activities planned between now and July.

For the first half term, we will continue with the topic on Mountain Environments. The main focus will be on a Design Technology project to build shelters for extreme environments!

During the second half of the term, we will extend some work we did on South America last term by looking at the Mayan civilization. We will compare it to other ancient civilizations such as the Roman and Egyptian empires and look at its key achievements.

This term we will be revising a range of both non-fiction and fiction texts and exploring writing opportunities through quality texts. We will be focusing on planning – organizing ideas quickly and efficiently to help structure a final piece.

We will be working towards end of year objectives in Maths.  These include

  • Place value of digits to three decimal places, including ordering and rounding.

  • Solving problems and calculating with fractions;

  • Written methods for four operations;

  • Calculating area, perimeter and volume;

  • Data handling including pie charts and averages (mean);

  • 2D, 3D shape and angles.
