Welcome to Year 6
Miss Tidmarsh, Miss Vann, Miss Ford, Mr Creighton and Mr Sheppard welcome you to Year 6!
Year 6 brings a lot of new opportunities for our pupils as it is their final year at Elmhurst. They take on responsibilities such as Head Boy, Head Girl or Prefect, work towards achieving well in their KS2 SATs examinations, look forward to an entertaining end of year production and celebrate all of their primary school achievements in our final Leavers' Assembly.
We have a great year ahead with lots of interesting topics to study. Below are some of the many exciting topics pupils will be learning in the Autumn Term.
Mathematics: Pupils will be focusing on number and the four operations using Maths No Problem.
Literacy: Pupils will explore myths and legends, re-telling the legend of Robin Hood in the role of his villainous enemy, Sir Guy!
Science: Pupils will be deepening their understanding of electricity and will be investigating what makes a good conductor.
History: Pupils will delve into tea and trade, understanding its role in the development of the British Empire.
D & T: Linking the unit to tea and trade in history, pupils will be making their own tea products.
Computing: Pupils will be creating their very own arcade game on Scratch.
We can't wait to see our new Year 6s rise to these challenges in their final year at Elmhurst!
