Hello and welcome to Year 6!

Please visit regularly to find up-to-date information from our year group.

Year 6 is a vital year group in all primary pupils life as pupils prepare for their future life and become secondary ready. The children work extremely hard to realise their full potential, aided by Mr Perks (Class Teacher) and Mrs Hanson.

Curriculum Information:

Our wider curriculum has been very successful this year and it has sparked their interest immensely. We feel here at Nechells that the wider curriculum is just as important to our children as the core subjects to give them understanding of the wider world.

These are some of the current units of work being covered:

  • Maths: Statistics, Measurement, Properties of shape, Ratio and proportion
  • English: Report writing, Explanation text, Narrative (Holes by Louis Sacher)
  • Science: Evolution and Inheritance
  • Geography: Population
  • Art: Photography
  • PSHE: Being in my world
  • RE: Compassion- Being regardful of suffering
  • Computing: Coding
  • Spanish: World War Two
  • PE: Street Dance, Basketball

Enrichment Opportunities:

So far this year, pupils in year 6 have visited Severn Valley Railway, where they encountered the opportunity to be an Evacuee. 

This term pupils will experience the Science Dome and will be given the opportunity to learn about Natural Selection.

Later this year, pupils will visit the Warburtons Factory and a Buddhist Temple.
