Welcome to Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

Mr Johnson and Miss Ratcliffe are the Year 6 Class Teachers. We are also taught by Miss Arthington as well as Mrs Hollingworth and Miss Brealey one afternoon a week.

Our theme for the Summer Term is ‘Courage’ and our learning will be centered around exploring this idea through different texts.

Our Class Bookshelf includes ‘High Rise Mystery’ by Sharna Jackson, ‘The Undefeated’ by Kwame Alexander, ‘Survivors’ by David Long, ‘Shackleton’s Journey’ by William Grill and ‘The 1,000 Year Old Boy’ by Ross Welford.


Important Information for Year 6:  

This term we will have PE on a Tuesday and Wednesday, please come to school dressed in your kit on these days.

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 specific spellings.

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