Welcome to Year 6

Summer 2

We hope you had a great break and feel rested and ready for the last half term!   Our Year 6 journey is nearly over so we will be focusing a lot on our end of year performance - Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies! All scripts have been given out for children to learn their lines, so we'll focus on the actual singing and acting at school. 


It is a busy half term as we will also be taking part in swimming and cooking lessons!  Your child will be told which days to bring in swimming kit or tubs for whatever delicious items they have created!  Not forgetting of course, our upcoming sports and activity days.  Let's just hope the sun shines on us so we can all enjoy these special events and give our year 6 children the send off they deserve!



English: We will be focusing on writing, including a newspaper report and editing skills:  so the children really showcase all the fantastic learning from throughout the year.


Science: Evolution and Inheritance


Computing: 3D modelling


PE: Rounders and athletics


PHSE & RE: RSE - Letters have been sent home detailing each of the units we will be covering linked to relationships and sex education.



Here are some 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 bags - are marked with their name.
  • Encourage your child’s growing independence by letting them begin to organise what they need each day for school.
  • 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. TT Rockstars, MyMaths, 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.)  Post any completed work to their Classdojo portfolio for feedback.




PE (see ClassDojo)

Children should arrive in PE kits on the days they have PE. PE will be done outdoors where possible.

  • PE t-shirt with school jumper over;
  • PE shorts with joggers over (can be removed easily if we do PE indoors)
  • Trainers (trainers are preferable for outdoor PE and also suitable for indoors if necessary. Plimsolls are not suitable for all day wear.)



How to contact us:


If you wish to raise a concern/issue with school your child's class teacher is always the first person to contact, these are the staff that know your child best.

Please message the class teacher via Class Dojo. The class teacher will respond as soon as possible. You can also request a telephone appointment with the class teacher via ClassDojo. Telephone appointments are usually at the end of the school day.

Teachers will check ClassDojo at least every other day.  If your message is urgent, please telephone the school office.
