Year 6

Welcome to the Year 6 section of the website. The Year 6 teaching team for the upcoming academic year will be:

Teacher: Mrs. L. Newton

Learning Support:   Mrs. S. Burt.

Our English learning is linked to high quality texts. This term we will be reading 'Stay Where You Are and Then Leave', and 'Goodnight Mr Tom'. These texts are linked to World War 1 and World War 2. We will be learning about historic events through these texts. The children will have opportunities to write for a range of purposes and different audiences.

The grammar activities will focus on cohesive devices, punctuation and vocabulary choices. . Handwriting practise will be a daily activity.

The children will be given spellings to learn each week.

The Reading Challenge is designed to enhance the children's enthusiasm to read a wide range of texts, share the content and complete activities around the text. We encourage the children to bring their reading books home to enable them to read to an adult. Regular reading aloud and discussion of texts will help your child to understand the text they have read and improve their fluency

In science this term we will be learning about evolution and inheritance and animal including humans.

Our focus in maths will be problem solving in a range of contexts and securing the four mathematical operations. In addition, there will be a daily mental maths activity to increase speed and fluency. Your child will need to learn multiplication facts to 12 times tables by heart to help with quick recall.

P.E lessons will be on Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child has a P.E kit for these lessons.

Homework will be set as a project and is to be completed over the half term. It is designed to encourage children to research independently and manage their time. Opportunities will be made for your child to use resources and complete some of this work in school.


We look forward to a fantastic year!
