Welcome to Year 6


Welcome to Year 6! 


Mr JohnsonMiss Ratcliffe and Mrs Thompson are the Year 6 Class Teachers and we are taught by Mrs Austin and Mrs Savin one afternoon a week.. Other adults thahelp us throughout the week are Mrs Jones, Mrs Sherrington and Mrs Akhtar. 


Our theme for the Autumn Term is ‘Make Your Mark’ and our learning will be centered around exploring this idea through different texts.  


Our Class Bookshelf includes The Good Thieves’ by Katherine Rundell and Clockwork’ by Phillip Pullman, which we will be reading as our Class Novels across the term. We will also be using The Man Who Walked Between The Towers’ by Mordicai Gerstein, ‘Mr William Shakespeare’s Plays’ by Marcia Williams and ‘I Am Not A Label’ by Cerrie Burnell. We will also be using videos from Literacy Shed to engage and inspire us, especially within our writing and English lessons. 



Important Information for Year 6:  


  • This term we will have PE on a Monday and a Wednesday, but ensure that your kit is in school every day just in case.  


  • Home Learning is set on a Wednesday, due for the following Monday. You will be given two pieces each week, which will consist of one Maths task (usually Arithmetic) and one English task (usually linked to Grammar or Reading Comprehension skills).  


  • A list of spellings will be sent home to learn at the start of each half term. This contains the test date for each week’s five specific spellings.  


We will be using a range of writing, images, practical activities and technology to present our learning throughout the Autumn Term – keep an eye on our Twitter page (@GorseyY6) for updates along the way!
