Form VI

 

Welcome to Form VI. 

 

Autumn Term 2016.

  

From the first day of the academic year in September, the children in Form VI work very hard. They concentrate on consolidating previous learning and extending their skills to the best of their ability. Their targets are to eradicate careless mistakes, follow procedures methodically, focus and work independently and improve presentation. This is all vital preparation for the forthcoming entrance examinations – the first of which is in September!

 

Mathematics and Reasoning (verbal and non-verbal) are taught by Mrs Brook. This term’s topics are Number which includes decimals, fractions and percentages as well as 2D and 3D shape.

Our Geography topic this term is developing our knowledge and understanding of the World and the necessary skills needed to accomplish this.
