Year 6

Robinwood Residential- Barhaugh Hall

We can't believe we are about to launch into Autumn 2 already! The children have worked so hard over the last few weeks and we hope you have enjoyed sharing this with them during our Book Share week.


In Autumn 2 we shall be learning:


  • Maths- Fractions (comparing, ordering, applying the four operations, finding fractions of amounts etc.)
  • English- Report writing based on our shared text of Dragonology
  • Science- Electrical circuits
  • DT - making of burglar alarms, linked to science
  • History- Continuing our learning on WW2
  • Geography- Continuing to explore Ordnance Survey map skills. We will plan a circular walk around the local area to practise what we have learned.
  • PSHE- We will be learning how to recognise and challenge stereotypes and discrimination in society and the media.
  • Art- We will be working with clay, sculpting and painting dragon eyes to link in with our English topic on Dragonology. We will also embroider our own designs onto fabric, as part of our WW2 work on 'Make Do and Mend'. Children will need to bring in a piece of clothing ready for embroidery.
  • ICT- How data is stored 


Dates for the diary:

Parent consultation meetings - Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd November

Residential Information Evening - Wednesday 9th November

DT days - Wednesday and Thursday 16th and 17th November (Children will need to bring in resources for these day. Further information will be given nearer the time)

Road Safety sessions - Wednesday and Thursday 23rd and 24th November

Crucial Crew visit - Wednesday 30th November




General information:

  • PE days are Monday and Tuesday
  • Homework timetable: 

Monday - maths

Tuesday - grammar

Thursday - reading comprehension


Children will have 1 week to complete each piece of homework before it must be handed in to the class teacher.

There may also be an additional spelling activity sent home occasionally too.




Children are encouraged to read a variety of texts at home as much as possible. This will really aid their ability to access our wide and varied curriculum. Children are expected to have a reading book with them in school every day (either their own from home or one borrowed from school).


Any queries, please don't hesitate to get in touch with your class teacher.


Mrs Clapperton and Mrs Potts
