Year 6 Orione

“Only charity will save the world”

Luigi Giovanni Orione was an Italian priest who was active in answering the social needs of his nation as it faced the social upheavals of the late 19th century. To this end, he founded a religious institute of men. He was canonised in May 2004 and declared a saint by the Catholic Church.

We love our new hoodies!
This is the current Autumn term timetable. This is subject to change but most weeks this will remain accurate!
We are currently doing PE (not Forest Schools) this half term up until Christmas.

Here is our PowerPoint from the meet the teacher event on Friday 2nd October.

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.

This is our Grammar overview up until SATs, so you know what we will be learning each week!

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.

This is our Maths overview up until Christmas, so you know what we are learning in each lesson!

We love doing practical activities in Science to make our learning more fun and memorable. We are currently learning about light including reflection, refraction, the colours of light and shadows.

We will be learning about different aspects of Catholic life this year as well as learning about other religions. We are currently starting our topic about Advent where we will be looking at expectations.

Our topic during the Autumn term is WWII. We have completed 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. So far this year, we have looked at making our own shelters using natural resources as well as creating our own pulleys to help lift heavy objects- a great link to Science!

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 know we can’t see them as much as usual because of our bubbles, but we have still received letters from them and get to see them sometimes on the playground.

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!
