Curriculum Year 6
Welcome to Class 6HP (The Meerkats)!
Welcome to the Autumn Term 2022! In year 6 this term, we have Mrs Hardy and Mrs Panter (class teachers), Miss Neath (support staff), Mrs Harper (Spanish teacher) and 31 pupils. We also have Mr Woods, our sports coach, teaching PE on a Monday afternoon and Friday morning.
Please ensure your child has their PE kit on school on Mondays and Fridays. The children will also be attending swimming lessons on a Monday this term at East Leake Leisure Centre. Please ensure your child brings their swimming kit into school on Mondays.
This term we will become scientists, geographers, historians, mathematicians, writers, artists and designers and brilliant sportspeople! We will also be using our character muscles in many different ways. Information about the Year 6 curriculum can be found on this page of the school website and is updated throughout the year. Please also check our Facebook page regularly and the pre-learning slip on the Google Classroom for regular updates of your child's learning.
We expect the children to read at home at least three times a week and for this to be recorded in their reading records. We will collect the reading records in every Thursday to see how the children have been getting on with their reading at home. Homework is set in the format of a choice grid in the autumn term and first half of the spring term, before moving to weekly homework to support key revision and preparation for secondary school.
At Kegworth Primary School, we follow the National Curriculum. This is a large document which can be found online and details what should be covered in the curriculum at Primary School.
Our first critical thinking unit will be a history unit of learning based around our key question, 'Why was winning the Battle of Britain so important?' We also have an exciting trip to the National Memorial Arboretum in September to explore our learning around this subject further.
If you have any questions or concerns about your child, please come and speak to us before or after school, or book an appointment via the office.
We look forward to a fantastic and hard-working term!
The Year 6 Team.
