We would like to welcome you to Year 6Y's class page. 

We hope that during the year you will enjoy finding out about all the wonderful things we will be learning in our lessons. To keep up to date with what is happening inside our classroom follow us on twitter @HolyFamilyL8_6Y

In Come and See lessons, we are beginning new topics; the first of which is 'Witnesses' in which we will explore the experience of witnessing events which may involve difficult choices. After this, we will look at the experience of the apostles after Jesus' death and how modern day witnesses live out Jesus' message today.

English lessons will incorporate a balance of reading and writing skills and our class novel is Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them. We will be writing information and explanation texts as well as developing our skills of persuasio.

In Mathematics, we will be looking 3D shape and also reading co-ordinates. In addition to this, we will be revising all areas we have covered so far this year. Homework will be set regularly in mathematics in preparation for the SAT tests in May.

In Science we will be covering the topic of Evolution and Inheritance. Children will learn about key scientists such as Charles Darwin and Mary Anning whose work was revolutionary in this field.They will also consolidate and enhance their skills as investigators - looking for patterns and relationships and making predictions and conclusions.

As geographers, we will study the environmental change annd will look specifically at the Amazon rainforest. We will explore issues such as deforestation and its impact locally, nationally and globally. 

PE this half term will be on Mondays and Fridays. It is essential that your child has a PE kit to take part in these sessions ( including appropriate footwear - pumps or training shoes. 

HOMEWORK - The main homework will be project based  around our topic about the Rainforest.  The children should spend time on either : 

  1. a longer piece of writing,
  2. an art based  piece or
  3. a scrapbook style submission. 

We are looking for originality and effort for the children to showcase what they have found out.


If  you have any questions, please feel free to talk to myself  by arranging an appointment.

Thank you,

Mrs Young


Ps. Do not forget to listen to your child regularly at home. Children can bring their home reader in to change as often as they would like. Please remenber to sign the reading card they will be given with their book.
