Welcome to Tigers Class (Year 6)
Year 6 Class Teacher: Mr Woodcock
Year 6 Class Teaching Assistant: Mrs Dalton, Mrs Hooper and Mrs Warner,
In Year Six we deepen our learning through a range of exciting and engaging topics. We seek to understand our solar system and the concepts of night and day in depth, and learn about evolution and inheritance in biology. We learn a range of skills and sports in PE, and have a particular focus on health and fitness. We study Salvador Dali and Piet Mondrian, alongside art periods and artistic styles that encourage creativity and exploration of techniques in art.
To support our learning throughout the year, we use ‘Spelling Shed’, an online learning platform, to secure children’s spelling and develop vocabulary and ‘Times Tables Rock Stars’, another online learning tool, to help secure the children’s multiplication and division facts.
We also use ‘Accelerated Reader’ (AR), a system which allows children to take comprehension quizzes on their reading books, to monitor and support reading. You can track your child’s AR quiz scores by signing up to ‘Renaissance Home Connect’.
More information about our Year Six curriculum for individual subjects can be found on our subject curriculum pages and in our termly Learning Letters, links to which are included below.
Our general timetable can be downloaded below. Our timetable is subject to change but gives you an overview of coverage each week.
