Welcome to the Class 9, year 6, webpage. This is your final year at Rift House Primary School and we hope to make it a very special and memorable one. This year we will provide you with many challenging, stimulating and enjoyable experiences throughout the curriculum. Some highlights of our learning this year is our focus on the Vikings and the World Wars in history, discovering how evolution has changed civilsation over time in science and in art, we will become architects and printers. In our classroom we use the 'CHOICES' philosophy to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of all pupils. As the year progresses, you will get ready for the end of Key Stage Two SATs tests. But do not fear, by the time SATs arrive, the teachers will have prepared you so well that you will be ready to do your best. In the summer term, you will have opportunities prepare for the transition to your chosen secondary school.
As well as the rest of Rift House, in Year 6, we have a positive learning attitude and work hard to achieve our personal goals and targets. We all try to make the right 'CHOICES' and give a 100% in everything we do.
Topics Over Year
Over the year, we will study a range of fiction and non-fiction texts to enhance our understanding of text structure, vocabulary and author's purpose.
Using the reading we have experienced, we will produce a range of writing including:
- We will bring the Galapagos Islands to life through imaginative descriptions.
- We'll produce reports on the adaptations of a Polar Bear.
- Using a range of suspense, we will keep you on the edge of seat with our 'theif in the night' stories.
This year we will revise and consolidate our knowledge of place value, refine and extend our written strategies of calculation, find factors, multiple and prime numbers, and understand the relationships between fractions, decimals and percentages.
Everyday we practise and develop our fluency skills through daily arithmetic sessions.
Additionally, we will explore properties of shape including angles, area and perimeter, measurements and time.
We will apply our understanding of our mathematical skills through a range of reasoning and problem solving activities.
