Year 6

We hope you have had a great Summer holiday. We are eager to welcome you into your new classrooms and start a great new term.


Our Creative Curriculum topic this term is all about World War 2! We have lots of exciting lessons planned. We will be becoming historians, thinking about who decides what is recorded for history. We will explore and discover the interesting lives of people living at this time. Using our Design and Technology skills, we will cook food based on recipes from the time.

In English, we will initially be looking at a text called ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker. We will then go on to look a range of genres including persuasive writing, recounts, narrative, non-chronological reports and poetry.

In Guided Reading, we will be looking at the amazing adventures of David and Tucky in ‘Friend or Foe’ by Michael Morpurgo. If you have your own copy of this text you are welcome to bring it into school and read along.

Maths lessons will be taught from our Power Maths scheme. Over the term, we will cover lots of new maths topics, add to skills we already have and develop them even further! To start off the term we will be looking at place value and then the four operations and fractions.

The homework expectations remain the same as last year. You will have weekly spellings, which will be tested on a Friday. In your spelling practise book, you will need to practise your spellings three times a week. You will need to read at home at least three times a week and your planner will need to be signed by an adult. You should be using Times Tables Rock Stars regularly.


In PE, we will be practising our Netball and Rugby skills. Please come to school in your PE kit on your PE days (red school jumper, white polo shirt and plain black shorts or jogging bottoms).


Your PE days are:

6Gold (Mrs Arends) – Thursday and Friday

6Ochre (Mr March) – Thursday and Friday


We look forward to seeing you.


Mrs Arends and Mr March


Year 6 Team.
