Class 6 - Mr McCabe 2023 - 2024

Mr McCabe

Welcome to Class 6. 

Our topic for this spring term is 'Extreme Explorers' which will be central to all of our learning.


In English, we will be focussing our work around books such as ‘Shackleton's Journey’ which will focus on fomal writing (letters, non-chronological reports) and ‘The Day War Came’ which looks at global conflict and refugees.


This term, as mathematicians, we will be focussing on ration and proportion; algebra and decimals. A lot of time will be spent revising the maths curriculum in order to prepare the children for their SATs


 This term we will be looking at ‘Sources’ where children will be able to compare their own and other people’s ideas about how books enrich our lives. We will then explore “Unity”. The experience of community is an essential and enjoyable part of life for people of every age and faith. Toward the end of the term we will explore “Belonging and Values” in our build up to Easter. 


We will be studying ‘Evolution and Inheritance’ and 'Adaptation'.

For more detail on the learning taking place this term, please see our curriculum leaflet below.
