Year 6 2018 - 2019

Mrs Higginson

American Road Trip



Welcome back to your second term as Year 6.


Class Teachers: Mrs Higginson (mornings) and Mrs S. Evans (afternoons)

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Baldwin (HLTA), Miss Evans and Miss Stanley


Let’s get ready for your final term at Elton Primary!


What do you need to know?

This term our final topic will be about North America, so it is all aboard the tour bus as we start our American road-trip. We will stop off at famous landmarks along the way to find out about popular American culture including art, foods, major events and pastimes before packing our bags and moving on to researching the various biomes of America through ’day trips’ to the Mohave desert, the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and tropical rainforests of Hawaii. This topic also provides exciting links to our English, Art, ICT and DT work.


Afternoon Sessions: Mrs Evans will teach you every afternoon this term, but you will continue to have Madame Theonot from the UCEA who will deliver French alongside Mrs Evans.  PE lessons will be taught on a Thursday afternoon- so remember those PE kits! Over the term, you will be looking at athletics and team games with both units hopefully taking place on the field now that the sun is shining. You will also continue to have the chance to participate in competitions so make sure that you listen out for opportunities to do so. 



Homework, Spellings and Reading

Like last term, there will usually be two pieces of homework a week. Both homeworks will be handed out on a Friday and will be due in the following Wednesday. Occasionally, we may give out a piece of homework that lasts for a longer period of time, such as a mini-project. If the homework days ever change, you will be notified of the due-in date.

Spelling lists will be glued in within your Learning Logs and also uploaded to the website for each term. These are to be practised at home throughout the week.

As always, reading is the cornerstone of all learning. We recommend reading a wide range of texts at home and at school. Although many of you are reading longer ‘chapter books’, you should still be aiming to change your book as often as possible.


You are now well and truly the oldest children in the school so let’s show everyone how fantastic we are and be fantastic 'DREAM TEAM' role models! 


Mrs Higginson and Mrs S. Evans
