SYCAMORE - Year 6
This is a very important year where the children study hard, learn many new things and revise previous topics covered. The children know the importance of doing well in class as it is the final chance to prepare for their next adventure - High School.
This is the last year at Woodbank Primary School and a year of great importance. By working hard, revising and studying, I hope that you all achieve the grades that you deserve. It is important to show those clear Year 6 qualities that will improve yourself as a person and be that quality role model for the younger children at our school. By working hard now, you will be able to take Year 7 in your stride and flourish during your years at High School.
Our first topic this half term is Zoos. We will be debating their purpose, thinking about animal welfare and looking at recent media coverage. We will be studying in depth, the book “Zoo”, by Anthony Browne. Our second topic is “Spit Nolan”, a short story by Bill Naughton set in the 1950’s involving “Bogey Cart” racing. These topics will provide lots of writing genres for the children to explore - letter writing, information text, reports, character studies and role reversal.
Outdoor Games lessons will be on Thursday this term. Indoor PE will be on Monday this term.
Kits are to stay in school and taken home every half term for washing.
