In Year 6 we work very hard but during this year, we will be learning about enjoyable and interesting things across all areas of the curriculum.

In Year 6 we follow the Read Write Inc Programme that cover lots of exciting reading genres and different styles of writing, both fiction and non-fiction. These texts help us to read with expression, write with confidence and increase our knowledge and understanding across the whole curriculum.

In Year 6 we learn lots about Processes in Maths, Number, Data Handling, Measures and Shape and Space. We use all of this information to help us tackle problem solving activities and investigations. We use IZAK9 to help us talk about our Maths and to show that in solving a problem, there is always different strategies that can be used.

In Year 6 we learn about the importance of our Parish, Diocese and the role the Church plays in our community. We also learn lots of stories about Jesus and try to follow the example Jesus taught us. Fr. Kevin and Fr. Daniel visits us throughout the year.

World Around Us:
This year we will be studying;

·  Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Saving Energy

·  Christmas Around the World

·  Titanic

·  Space

·  Farming / Strathroy Dairies

These topics will allow us to learn and share new experiences and develop our skills and knowledge in all cross curricular areas.

Personal Development and Mutual Understanding:

PDMU is an opportunity to express our feelings and emotions and be aware of the importance of keeping safe and living healthy. It also allows us to develop relationships in school and in our community. We are delighted to have the opportunity to participate in PATHS, a programme that helps us to control and manage our feelings, behaviour and to plan a solution when experiencing a problem. We are very excited about Pupil of the Day, an opportunity to hear and share compliments with one another.

Year 6 pupils will be using a wide variety of ICT resources such as laptops, Fronter, I Pad Apps or using the Interactive Whiteboard to help consolidate their learning across the curriculum. With the introduction of Office 365, children will share their work collaboratively, showcase their ideas and offer constructive feedback to allow improvement. This year we are particularly delighted to be focusing on coding, whereby we can showcase our programming skills and experience new resources such as Raspberry Pi.

Year 6 have P.E. every Wednesday. This will involve a range of genres throughout the year – gymnastics, dance, games and cross fit for kids with Joanne Meenagh.

The Arts:
All of the Arts will be delivered through our World Around Us topic. Children have the opportunity to express themselves through Art, Drama and Music based activities and express their talents and skills.

In Year6 we recognise the effort and hard work of all pupils in the following ways: Weekly Star of the Week, Weekly Golden Gallery, Mathematician of the Week, Weekly best effort in handwriting, Reward Tickets for Termly Raffles and Up to 30 minutes Golden Time per week!!

All our knowledge, skills, talents and achievements is expressed through display work, creating a beautiful and stimulating learning environment! We also like to showcase our experiences through the Year 6 Twitter account and school website.
