Year 6 2019 - 2020

Mr McGill

Miss Collins


Welcome to year 6.

During this first half-term we have a lot of learning going on.


In English we will be writing a variety of genres such as historical stories, flashback stories and points of view alongside covering a range of grammatical features.


Our first class book is There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom by Loius Sachar. This is an entertaining book that I thoroughly enjoy reading with children. We are also aiming to develop the children's understanding of words and their meanings. One way to help at home is to listen to your child read, choose a few words from the text and discuss what they mean.


We will be working with numbers up to 10 million in this first half-term and understanding the value of each digit in the number. We will also be aiming to master addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of larger numbers.


We are learning about the Vikings and their invasion of Britain. We will be focussing on developing our own enquiry skills to gain a greater understanding of life during the Viking era.


In our science lessons we will be focussing on light. We will be covering how light travels, how we see different colours, light sources and refraction.

If you have any questions, please call in to see me after school.

Please see the attached letter for more information about Year 6.

I am looking forward to a successful year.

Mr McGill
