Welcome to Year 6

 

Year 6 is an amazing year at Christ Church Academy. We face the challenge of SAT exams, the transition to secondary school and the end of year performance.

We approach all of these challenges with a positive ’CAN DO ‘attitude and see all our hard work rewarded at the end of the year.

 

Please support us, in this our final year at Christ Church Academy by reading with your child every night, practising their passport maths skills and undertaking homework tasks.

Read your child’s report card and ask them about ‘being green’ and ensure they have their PE kit for Tuesday.

 

Come into school and visit, we will be holding parent/student art activities this year.

This term year 6 will focus on the Victorians and their transition to Secondary school.

The children will study the history of the Saltaire and Sir Titus Salt. We will focus on how children in particular lived and reflect on the validity of evidence available from the time. We shall visit Saltaire and Roberts Park. The children will also experience a Victorian school day. We will write recounts, reports, pretend to be inventors and build our own version of Saltaire.

In Science we will investigate chemistry  – we will dissolve, separate and evaporate a variety of materials – practising our fair test techniques and use of vocabulary to generate conclusions. We will look at light and forces.

The children will participate in transition events such as school visits and the Salts Olympics.

Year 6 will also perform their final production as their way of saying goodbye..
