Year 6

Welcome to Year 6   smiley


Where is the year going??? The children are half way through their final year of primary and what a great year it has been so far. They have all been amazing and are working so hard.

The next half term and just beyond Easter will see the final preparations for SATs alongside our wider curriculum. We shall complete a full set of practice SATs papers in the final week of term to support the children's preparation. We look forward to catching up with you all during 'Look at our Learning' week and then parents evenings.


Spring 2:

Maths - Fractions, Decimals & Percentages; Area, Perimeter & Volume; Statistics

English - Report writing based on 'The Land of Neverbelieve' and a biography of Greta Thunberg

Science - Finishing our work on The Circulatory System and then classification of living things 

Geography - Biomes and Earth's natural resources; changes to our environment and sustainable living

Computing - Coding

Religion, Beliefs & Values - Exploring the big question: Can religion help to reduce racism?

Art - Landscapes and the artist David Hockney

PSHE - Understanding how some decisions impact on our lives and recognising and dealing with worries

Homework: (This will continue until after SATs and then in Summer 2, homework will become more project based.)

Monday - Maths

Tuesday - Grammar

Thursday - Reading comprehension

Friday - Spellings


We encourage children to read for a minimum of 10 minutes every day at home and to practise the spellings of the Common Exception Words for the whole of KS2 - children will have received copies of these. We shall also be learning these in school alongside the Year 6 spelling rules.
