Year 6

Welcome to Year 6 Class Page!



Children will continue to consolidate their Year 6 learning by continuing to recap arithmetic skills including all the four operations, fractions, decimals and percentages. They will also develop their problem-solving and reasoning skills by answering a range of differing questions, completing short projects and manipulating numbers to create their own questions for peers to answer. They will also continue to complete their Times Tables rockstars homework to ensure this knowledge is not lost.



For the first part of this half term, children will engage and study the Narrative text: Frankenstein. They will look closely at the characters and their thoughts, feelings and emotions. Children will write a setting description based on the Arctic during the first part of the story and later in the unit write an ending to the story where Victor Frankenstein has to make a frightening decision. 


Local Heritage 


The children will be investigating the question, What was the impact of World War II on Tunstall?  This study will begin with a walk to the cenotaph where the children will complete a condition survey for the War Graves Commission.  After, they will research some of the names on the memorial war and use an electronic census to find out about the families of some of the local soldiers who lost their lives.  



Children will learn how to create a website, which includes information from their Geography topic: Biomes - in particular Polar Bears, which live in the Tundra. They will be taught how to safely create a website,  understand what copyright means, how to add pictures and information to their website and the publication of the website too. 


Relationships and Sex Education:

Children will participate in a number of lessons, which build on knowledge taught in previous years. 


Physical Education:

Swimming will continue every other week for all children.

Children will engage in weekly dance lessons in preparation for their Leaver's Performance. 


Many thanks,
