Welcome to Year 6
Our Golden Thread for Spring 2 is : Mighty Oaks
Developing knowledge and skills is one part of learning in school, but we want our children to develop into independent learners that take ownership of their path to success and believe that they can succeed. This means taking responsibility for their own learning behaviour, in a caring and nurturing environment, in which making mistakes are seen as positive things. Our Golden Thread, Mighty Oaks, focuses on developing a Growth Mindset in learning, in which children become determined to seek out feedback, develop self-regulation strategies and are willing to persevere in tasks: with a Growth Mindset, you CAN do it!
We will cover a range of topics in maths and literacy building up to the new curriculum tests. In our Horizons Curriculum, we will look at: electricity in science; World War II in history; we are network technicians in IT ; crucifixion in RE and programming adventures in DT.
