Year 6



Summer Term 2019


Welcome back 6 Neptune; I hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter. We’ve got a busy term ahead with lots to look forward to.


In English, we will be reading ‘Journey to the River Sea’ by Eva Ibbotson. This will link to our topic work as we find out about the geography of South America and we will also be creating shelters in Design and Technology.


This will also help us as we explore our science topic of Living Things and Their Habitats. We will also learn more about animals including humans, such as: the functions of the heart; the impact of diet and exercise and how nutrients and water are transported within animals.


In the first few weeks of term, we will be fine-tuning all of the amazing learning the children have done over this year in maths, reading, spelling, punctuation and grammar and there will be plenty of opportunities to revise and refresh key areas. To get the most out of the next few weeks, don’t forget to continue doing short bursts of revision at home too.


As it is their last term at Mill Mead, 6N will be reflecting on their time in Primary School and creating their own unique self-portraits in art.


We will also look at the First World War in preparation for our visit to France in June, and of course, will continue to develop our French in class.  


Please do not hesitate to make contact should you have any questions about the upcoming term.


We are all looking forward to a great final term in Year 6.


All the best,


Mrs Harrison and the Year 6 team.
