Welcome to Year 6


Welcome to Year 6!

Mr Johnson and Mrs Thompson are the Year 6 Class Teachers, and Mr Maguire (Head of School) and Mr Thompson (Deputy Head of School) are also part of the teaching team for English and Maths sessions. Other adults that help us are Mrs Savin, Mrs Brickhill, Ms Aitken and Mrs Coker.

Our theme for the Autumn Term is ‘Into the Unknown…’ and our learning will be centered around exploring this idea through different texts. Our Class Bookshelf includes the following titles that will be used to inspire and engage us: ‘Jemmy Button’ by Jennifer Uman & Valerio Vidali, ‘The Explorer’ by Katherine Rundell, ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ by Michael Morpurgo, ‘Survivors’ by David Long & Kerry Hyndman, ‘Rules of Summer’ by Shaun Tan and ‘The Island’ by Armin Greder.

Important Information for Year 6:

  • This term we will have PE on a Monday (indoor) and a Wednesday (outdoor) but try to have your kit in school every day just in case.
  • Home Learning is set on a Wednesday, due for the following Monday. You will continue to be given a Maths task each week, along with an English task (usually linked to Grammar and 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!
