Year 6 

 

  

Welcome back!

 

 We hope you have all had a lovely summer holiday and are ready for all the exciting challenges ahead in Year 6.  We can't wait to see you all! 

Our topic for this term is 'The Swinging Sixties!' 

This topic will celebrate Ashton's 60th birthday and look at how Preston has changed from the 1960s to now.

Our first Maths topic will be about knowing the place value of each digit and being able to add, subtract, times and divide different numbers effectively.

 

For our first English unit, we will be using the text 'The Nowhere Emporium' and writing about mystery and magic!

PE will be on Wednesdays this term and swimming will be each Friday.

Please ensure PE kits are in school every day.

P.E KITS:

Black pumps, purple shorts and yellow T-shirts. (Trainers, grey, black or blue tracksuit trousers/leggings and school jumper/cardigan for cooler weather.)

Long hair must be tied up for all P.E lessons. Jewellery must not be worn for P.E.
