Year 6 Swordfish & Dolphin

Welcome to year 6!

 

This is a very important year for Swordfish and Dolphin class and we have many events throughout the year to work hard for.

Some of us have already taken the Kent Test and shall be finding out our results soon - good luck one and all! However, all year 6 pupils must have their secondary school choices made soon. Please see class teachers or the school office if this is proving difficult.   

 

Throughout this term and next our topic will be the Victorians. We have already begun learning about Workhouses in English and the conditions people lived in. We are reading the book 'Streetchild' to accompany our topic and (so far) we are thoroughly engaged in the story of Jim. We have also written excellent biographies in Topic about some famous Victorians, including: Queen Victoria, Charles Dickens and Florence Nightingale.

 

For Maths we have been concentrating on the importance of place value and the number system. We have been using the four operations and will be using these to solve written problems.

 

PE and Forest School will be Friday afternoons all term so please remember your kit on that day.

We have also sent out letters to all year 6 pupils for Kingswood in June. Please have the permission slip and deposit to the office by the 20th October to reserve your place. Please see class teachers or Helen if there is a problem with this deadline.
