Miss Bond, Head of Year 6 welcomes you....
During the final stage of the primary school journey, Year 6 pupils have a busy year! In the first phase of year 6, we aim to ‘Secure our Successes’ as we join together as one year group at Shenley Wood, applying our acquired knowledge across a wide range of topics. As we ‘Confirm our Learning’ in phase 2, adults and children work alongside one another to consolidate everything they have learnt during Key Stage 2, within a fluid learning environment. Phase 2 culminates with the Key Stage 2 SATs – a celebration of everything they have learned during their primary school lives. As the children begin to prepare for secondary school, the year 6 pupils celebrate by ‘Dreaming, Believing, Achieving Together’, in phase 3 of their year 6 journey, putting on an end of year production, dancing the night away at Prom, and finishing with a flourish at the Graduation Ceremony! You can find me, along with the rest of the Year 6 team, at Shenley Wood, or contact the office to make an appointment.

|Year Group Curriculum...|
We will be enjoying a variety of adventure and exploration books to inspire vocabulary associated with great journeys and exploration. Throughout the term, the children will be studying ‘The Arrival’ by Shaun Tan in order to develop ideas about doorways into other worlds. The children will be enhancing their non-fiction writing skills through writing non-chronological reports about volcanoes. We will continue to teach spelling rules explicitly as part of our English lessons. As well as a consistent focus on basic punctuation, the children will be taught how to use semi-colons to separate items on list and link closely related sentences.
This half term we be working with decimals and percentages in more detail, linking this work to our knowledge of fractions. We will then go on to develop our knowledge of algebra by using simple formulae, using algebra to solve missing number problems and using the ’nth’ term when sequencing numbers. We will continue to deepen and develop our arithmetic skills through calculation and reasoning questions.
Doorways and Pathways:
During our Doorways and Pathways this half term, running parallel with our Evolution and Adaption science focus, we will be studying Charles Darwin’s journey to the Galapagos islands, under the heading of ‘80 Days around the World’. Our learning journey will give us the opportunity to develop our geographical knowledge and study the physical features of the islands, the significance of longitude and latitude and the climate of the tropics.
