Welcome to Year 6

Spring 1 Begins!

Welcome back! We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas break

 and are recharged and raring to tackle this busy half term!


There will be lots of exciting learning opportunities to explore and get involved in. 

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher via the office or e-mail. 


Spring 1 Learning 

Learning Challenge – Were the Tudors really that terrible? 


As we seek answers, we will make learning links across all areas of learning, specifically history, and computing.

We are confident that the children will enjoy this Learning Challenge - understanding an important part of British history and an unforgettable era. 


Maths & English


Maths will focus on number work skills including place value, addition and subtraction and multiplication and division. The children will be given the opportunity to make links to apply these skills in real-life context investigations applying their reasoning and problem solving skills.

We will continue to practice our times tables off by heart to 12 x 12 in order to support our learning.


In English, children will be given regular targets to ensure continuing improvement in their reading and written work. We will begin with story writing to enable the children to include a range of vocabulary and punctuation. Within our daily lessons we will also be focusing on spellings, punctuation, grammar, handwriting and presentation.


Science: 'Light up your world.'

IT: Digital literacy

PE: Netball, fitness circuits and Tudor dances

PHSE & RE: Dreams and goals



Trying Our Best and Aiming High


Autumn Term is a busy time of new experiences as the children settle into Y6 life.

Ways that you can help your child keep organised and

excel in their learning at school:

  • Avoid lost property by making sure ALL their possessions – especially coats, jumpers and PE uniform - are marked with their name.
  • Encourage your child’s growing independence by letting them begin to organise what they need each day for school.
  • Ensure they have their planners with them every day.
  • Listen to your child read for 15 minutes daily if possible; and ask them about their books. Please record what you read in their planner.
  • Practise maths skills in an enjoyable and informal way – e.g. number games, mental arithmetic, table facts and maybe even practically!
  • Encourage and support them to complete their Homework Challenges to a high standard - as independently as possible.  (Please ask your child’s teacher for any resources or support you may need.)


Keeping in Touch

  • Leave a message with the adult on the door in

the morning

  • Write a note in your child’s planner
  • Email us (email addresses in your child’s planner)
  • If a message is urgent or you wish to make an appointment; please contact the school office.
