Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

Welcome back, Year 6!


We hope that you had a wonderful Easter holiday. 


Our new topic for this term is 'Full of Beans' which has a key focus on geography. It begins with learning about different types of beans, how and where they are grown, and their nutritional value. We will then go on to learning about beans as a source of energy, energy sources in general, and finally ending with a business enterprise element. 


Our PE sessions will continue to be on Wednesday and Thursday this term.


We are excited to see where our learning takes us!

This week's learning

WC Monday 23rd May 2022



In our literacy lessons, we are planning our own narratives based on the story of Ernest Shackleton escaping the ice after the Endurance got stuck. 



We are going to be focusing on problem solving and multi-step problems. 



After finishing our geography we will be moving onto our Business Enterprise project. We will start by creating brand names and logo, before thinking about understanding budgeting and costing.
