Year 6

We hope you’ve had a lovely, well-earned half term break. We’re so proud of the children’s hard work and adaptability last term, virtually and in school. We look forward to seeing everyone back in school soon.
Attendance is vital for your child’s education. If your child is away for one day, their learning is put on hold and they have more pressure to catch up. We understand that all children get ill and now more than ever, we’re all aware of being ill, however we’d encourage them to attend school whenever possible to ensure they reach their full potential and make the most out of their final year of primary school.

PE Information

While in lockdown, PE is on Wednesdays and Fridays however, when we come back fully, PE will be back to Tuesdays and Fridays. Ensure that both indoor and outdoor kits are available for both days and please refer to the uniform policy to ensure the correct kit is worn.

Extended Learning

For extended learning, your child will be expected to complete weekly tasks:

  • Reading at home at least 4 or more times (reading books and diaries should be in school every day)
  • TT Rockstars
  • Spelling practice via Spelling Shed (spelling tests are every Friday)
  • Homework Grid (share work on year group Padlet)
  • Year Group Bucket List (share activities on year group Padlet)
  • A piece of Grammar, Maths and Reading homework via One Note.


This term, we will learn continue to learn about what Baghdad was like during the early Islamic civilisation and what impact it had on modern day life. We had a good start last term and learnt a lot from our class book ‘The Golden Horsemen of Baghdad’.
We’ll also be studying the physical features of South America and comparing it to the UK.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact any of the year 6 team.
