Year 6 2017 - 2018

Mr Manning

Mrs Edwards

Welcome back to Elton Year 6.

My name is Mr Manning and I'm the Year 6 teacher for this year. I will be supported throughout the year by Mrs Edwards - one of our super HLTAs.

This spring term, we will start our literacy work off with a half-term long project based around the classic novel 'The Wind in the Willows'. We will write diaries and letters in the role of Mole, Rat and Toad. Following that, we will create police reports and newspaper articles detailing some of Toad's misadventures. During these sessions we will cover grammar skills such as the perfect tense, the passive voice and the subjunctive mood - building on our skills with noun phrases, relative clauses, parenthesis and adverbials.

In numeracy we will focus on decimals to begin with - looking at ordering and calculating with numbers to three decimal places. Percentages, algebra, ratio, measurements, perimeter and area all feature as units this term too.

Our main topic for the term will be on the world's biomes; and how animals and plants are adapted to survive in them. In geography we will explore deserts, polar regions, rainforests and mountains to name just some. In science we will look at evolution - focusing on Darwin's life and the meaning of the terms inheritance and adaptation.

PE lessons will be taught on Wednesday and a Friday by Miss Preugschat - so remember those PE kits.

Mrs Edwards will teach the class for an hour on a Monday afternoon and a Wednesday afternoon - when she will cover subjects such as Music, RE, P4C and French. She will also teach the humanities topic on a Thursday afternoon.

Monday will remain our key slot for the ICT suite (although iPads will be used throughout the week) and we start the term by exploring different multi-media apps and programmes such as Photostory 3, Chatter Pix, Telegami and Movie Maker.

In the final week of the term we will go on our Upper Junior residential to 'The Manor'.
