Our Learning (Year 6)

Governors At St Albert The Great


Year 6 have all settled into their new routines are enjoying life in school.



We are currently reading Cogheart by Robert Bunzl.

Synopsis:  When 13-year-old Lily’s inventor father vanishes after a Zeppelin crash, Lily’s determined to hunt down the truth behind his disappearance, helped by Robert, the local clockmaker’s son, and her wily mechanical fox Malkin.  But shadowy figures are closing in and treachery lurks among the smoky spires of London – along with a life-changing secret.  Be swept away by airships and flabbergasted by dastardly plots in this extraordinary and wildly imaginative debut, bursting with invention and adventure.


We are currently using Pie Corbett’s ‘Kidnapped’ story as a basis for writing our own adventure stories.  This will be followed by a non-fiction unit on instructions.


So far, we have looked at place value and are beginning to work our way through written methods for all four number operations.  After this it will be prime, square and cube numbers closely followed by a unit on fractions.  Remember to keep on working on your times tables.
