Year 6 2017 - 2018

Mr Manning

It's the last term at Elton Primary School for our year six children before they all leave us for their high schools! And what a full but fun term we have in store for them.

My name is Mr. Manning and I'm the year six teacher this year. I am supported throughout the year by Mrs. Edwards - one of our super HLTAs.

For our third and final term in Year Six we will be basing lots of our work around North America. We will base most of our English lessons around the text 'Queen of the Falls' which is set in the United States. In geography we will explore both the human and physical features of the continent: comparing cities and biomes. In art we will create pieces in the style of the American artist Andy Warhol. In science we will look at forces and then the human body (see the attached learning leaflet for more details).

Three major events will occur this term. First we will sit the SATs with tests in maths, reading and SPAG (spelling, grammar and punctuation). Then we will spend time visiting our high schools as part of our transition process to ensure that everyone is relaxed and comfortable about their new schools. Finally we  will perform our Upper Junior production to the school and then to our families. If that wasn't enough, we also have a visit to the zoo planned, an end of year assembly to deliver and a sports day to train for. As I said - a term full of fun things to look forward to.

Homework will continue to go out on a Wednesday for maths and will be expected to be in by Friday at the latest. A topic homework (which will often have an English focus) will go out on a Friday and be in for Tuesday at the latest. There will also be regular spelling test words to learn and of course the children will be expected to be reading at home on a regular basis too.

PE will take place on a Monday - when games will be taught by me; and on a Wednesday when we will have a dance expert in to teach us some new moves.

Mrs. Edwards will cover the class on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon when art, DT and PE lessons are taught. Miss Anders will cover on a Thursday when she will teach the geography topic. The rest of the time the children will be taught by me.
