Year 6 Blog
2019 – 2020

Welcome
back

Dear
Parents

Welcome to
the Year 6 blog, where you will find updates and information concerning the
Year 6 students here at DC. We hope you had a great summer break, whether that
was here in Hong Kong or further afield. This year the Year 6 team remains the
same as last year, Miss Harrison, Ms Cameroon, Miss Seward, Mr Edwards, Mr
Urquart and Mrs Trimmingham.

The
students have started the term with energy and enthusiasm and are settling into
their new classes and routines seamlessly. This week the classes have been setting
up class agreements, distributing jobs and excitedly receiving their computers.
This all fits into our first unit of inquiry which is ‘How we organise
ourselves’. Within this unit we will be inquiring into systems of leadership
and how it is necessary to participate to be able to activate change. This
connects with our language where we will be learning how persuasion and debates
can influence thinking. We will start our maths curriculum with a focus on
pattern and function and this includes using simple algebra to predict future
terms of a pattern.

In the next
few months we have a range of dates that are important for the Year 6 students,
please find below the latest update, which could be subject to change.

We are

and please if you have any questions do not hesitate to speak to your child’s
class teacher.

Kind
regards

The Year 6
Team
