Welcome

Welcome to Year 6

Hello and welcome to Year 6, my name is Miss Taylor and I am the class teacher. In Year 6, we strive to create learning environment that is engaging and motivating for all, encouraging all children to fulfil their potential while preparing them for the next step to High School.

As Year 6 are the oldest pupils in the school, we greatly encourage independence and responsibility. All our pupils have taken on extra roles such as: Head boy/girl, Deputies, House Captains and Play Leaders. Throughout St Alban’s, our Year 6 children act as role models to the younger children, demonstrating our school’s core values.

If you have any further question, please do not hesitate to get in touch.  

Kind regards

Miss Taylor

  • Perimeter, Area and Volume
  • Ratio

We also practice our arithmetic and times tables skills weekly.

English

In Year 6 we focus on a variety of different genres. This half term in English we will be learning about Biography’s and what grammatical features we need to use. Linking to our History topic, we will use the Little People, BIG DREAMS book about Anne Frank as inspiration to create a biography about this amazing young girl.

What was it like to live during WW2?

WW2

Imagine being alive during WW2. What would it be like? This term we will be learning all about the events of World War 2 and how Britain and its Allies ultimately won the war. During this topic we will explore both how the war was fought on the Homefront and the impact it had on daily life at home. 

Geography

Rio and London

Two cities on two different continents. How are they similar? How are they different? This term we will undertake a comparison study between Rio De Janeiro and London to investigate these questions, exploring both the physical and human geography of these areas.
