Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

This year your child will be supported in their learning journey by: Mr Burrows, Mrs Massey, Mrs Khatun, Mrs Denham-Marsh, Mrs Evans, Mrs Bibi and Miss Mouncey.


Some of the topics your child will be learning this year are:


  • In English, narrative writing as we study Harry Potter, poetry and Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
  • In maths, will focus on place value and improving their all-round concept of number
  • Science – Our first topic was ‘Animals and Humans’ – Children will learn about systems of the human body, experiment how exercise affects heart rate, and study how diet and exercise affect health. We have been looking at how to be safe with electricity and will be making circuits!
  • RE – Our topic is 'Advent' in the run up the Christmas.
  • Geography and Art – Children have studied human and physical geography of South America and appreciate artists such as Frida Kahlo. We will also create a piece of artwork inspired by an artist the children have researched.
  • Music - We are learning to play the glockenspiels and music pieces created by John Williams.
  • History – We will journey back to pre AD900 to learn about the Mayan Civilisation of Central America. 


As part of your child’s continued learning, we request that your child includes in their routine, the following:

  • Reading
  • Revising knowledge organisers
  • Practising times tables
  • Practising spellings

We conduct spelling, times tables and knowledge organiser tests each Friday and is a fantastic way to help the children retain their learning.


Your child will be given homework on a Monday and are required to hand it in by Friday.


P.E. is on Mondays and alternative Wednesdays. We ask that your child comes to school dressed in their P.E. kit. P.E. kit items include: white t-shirt, black bottoms, black pumps (indoor) or white/black trainers (outside) and a school jumper. 


Thank you for your continued support.

Mr Burrows and Mrs Massey
