Year 6 – Hawthorn

Class Teacher: Mrs Wright

 

Welcome to Year 6 – Hawthorn Class

I am really excited to be teaching Year 6 this year. I have never taught this year group before and I am sure we will have lots of wonderful things happening throughout the year to inspire the children and produce some fantastic work.

This year the children have chosen their own topics and helped to design the curriculum. We have decided to start our year looking at ‘Fantastic Beasts’. During this topic we will design our own fantastic beasts, learn different ways to classify animals and write some exciting stories. In the spring term our topic will be superheroes, we will link this to science work on evolution and inheritance. In the summer term we will be learning lots about Vikings and the sinking of the Titanic. Threaded throughout our topics will be links to art, geography, history and science as well as opportunities to develop their independent thinking, reasoning and debating skills.

The SATs are obviously a key part of Year 6 and our aim is that the children have the knowledge and strategies to tackle them with confidence and achieve their very best. This year the SATs will take place 13th -16th May 2019.

In the summer term we will showcase the children’s more creative side in the Year 6 production. They will experience survival training and participate in physical challenges in our annual residential trip to Robinwood in Wrexham and we will be preparing the children for their transition to secondary school.

If you have any queries at all, please do not hesitate to contact me.
