Year 6 Drexel

‘Kindness is the natural fruit of goodness of the heart’.

St Katharine Drexel

This is our timetable for the Autumn term. This is subject to change.

We love basing our learning on different books to help inspire our writing. We try hard to include challenging vocabulary, punctuation and grammatical features within our writing.

In Year 6, we have our English map, but we work towards ticking off the standards on our ITAF map below.

We also have a handy Grammar document which explains what each of the terms mean!

We will be working hard to become secure with our arithmetic and to learn strategies to solve reasoning problems this year.

We love doing practical activities in Science to make our learning more fun and memorable. Our first topic will be Living Things and Their Habitats.

We will be learning about different aspects of Catholic life this year as well as learning about other religions. Our first topic will be looking at Loving and Anti-Racism.

Our first topic during the Autumn term is WWII. We will complete a lot of cross curricular work: WWII dance in PE; war poetry, the story of Rose Blanche and Winston Churchill biographies in English; reading Now or Never in our guided reading sessions; and creating our own artwork for Remembrance Day.

We love our forest schools sessions with Mr Phil and can’t wait to continue this year. It is great to get out into nature to enjoy the outdoors and make the most of our amazing school environment.

We love going over to the farm during our fortnightly farm day. We enjoy getting to see the animals, learning to care for them and making sure they are fed.

We are so excited to meet and get to know our Reception buddies this year- helping them with the daily mile, lunches and breaktimes.

We really are a talented group- inside and outside of school! Whether it be sports, music, home learning, classwork or other awards. This is not it though…look out in the future because you will see big things from all of us!

Welcome to Year 5….

The year ahead is going to be filled with lots of fun and learning and we hope that you are just as excited as we are. Keep an eye on our Twitter account for regular updates of what we get up to.
