Class 6 - Mrs J Markworth and Mrs Smith

Welcome to Class 6


Year 6 is an important time in our primary school journey and we will be certain to accept challenges as learning opportunities; relish the responsibility that comes as part of being the oldest in the school; and make the most of our remaining moments with our St Michael’s family.

The year ahead is jam-packed full of lots of learning opportunities:

In English, we will be delving into some fabulous texts as part of our Literacy Tree scheme. These will provide us with lots of writing opportunities, producing both fiction and non-fiction pieces.

Our maths this year will focus on consolidating and deepening our understanding of key mathematical concepts as well as the introduction of some new topics such as algebra.

Taking inspiration from some of the world's most renowned scientists such as Darwin, Edison and Volta, we will be investigating light, electricity, micro-organisms, evolution and the circulatory system.

As historians, we will be travelling back in time exploring British Crime and Punishment through the ages and taking a look at life in the twentieth century and how Britain has changed since 1948. In geography, we will be researching our local area, looking at our Extreme Earth and becoming tourists as we learn about North America.

In PE, we will be finessing our defending and attacking skills; moving and shaking with a carnival themed dance and developing our bat and ball skills with tennis and cricket.

In Art and DT, we will be using our topics for inspiration to create a variety of different pieces in various forms of media.

We will still find the time to learn some new French language skills; build on our musical knowledge; develop our Personal, Social and Health Education with our SCARF curriculum as well as becoming more competent computer users.

Growing as moral citizens, demonstrating the values of Faith, Hope, Love, showing Kindness, Acceptance and Forgiveness is important to us and is supported through our RE learning.

We are proud representatives of the St Michael’s community.
