Welcome to Year 6 - Autumn 1

Welcome to Year 6! All of the children have made such a positive start this week, and it was lovely to see so many of the home learning challenges in already – thank you for your support. Our Harry Potter topic, “The Boy Who Lived” has been launched, and the children have enjoyed a house point challenge already: The Neville Longbottom Egg Drop Challenge! The children have also been sorted into one of the four Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry Houses: Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Gryffindor and Slytherin, and are keen to earn as many house points as possible between now and the awarding of the House Cup at Dumbledore’s Feast (details to be confirmed).

The Year 6 team would now like to draw your attention to some of the highlights planned for this first half term. Your children will be immersed in the world of Harry Potter as they learn about chemistry (materials and their properties) through the “Hogwarts” subject of Potions. In English, pupils will be learning about magical creatures, and will be writing a discussion text which asserts the advantages and disadvantages of keeping a magical creature as a pet. Our class reader this half term is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and, in guided reading, we will be studying David Almond’s novel, “Skellig”, which deals with magic in a subtler way. In PE students will have the chance to play and adapt Muggle Quidditch.

Finally, the children are all greatly enjoying designing and making a familiar (pet) in design technology that can keep them company throughout the academic year ahead.

It truly is an exciting curriculum this half term, and we hope to be able to showcase pupils’ work to you at Dumbledore’s Feast, either remotely or in person!  We will also touch base with you at the start of October, as we present learning reviews prepared by your child.

Please do not hesitate to contact us via class dojo if you have any questions or concerns.
