Year 6 is a huge year for children at Mitton Manor. This year children learn to be independent and responsible as they begin their move towards secondary school. They have their SATs but more than that they benefit from an enriched and widespread curriculum. They will learn a great deal about the world around them as well as about themselves and will make great strides in their preparation for the next big step. It is also a difficult year with lots of change and some big moments, the year 6 team work hard with all colleagues to ensure children enjoy a happy and progressive year which should be full of fun, laughter and responsibility. They will all receive jobs to ensure that they develop confidence and empathy with others and their surroundings.

This term in Year 6 we are focusing on Tribes. We're going to be looking at tribes around the world and compare them to how we live.
During Guided Reading sessions we will be reading lots of different books and trying to understand different genres. In Literacy sessions we will focus on leaders, tribal stories and persuasive campaigns. Maths this term will focus on shape and also, looking at data and how we can use it in the real world alongside spreadsheets! As well as all of this the children will be learning about electricity in science and practising our teddy bear rolls in gymnastics. A really busy term!!
