Year 6

We hope you’ve had a lovely, well-earned half term break. Though it was short, we had a fabulous Spring 1 and were proud of the children’s hard work and adaptability. This term we will be continuing our ‘countdowns’ and the theme will be ‘Countdown to Easter’. More information will follow about the treat nearer the end of term.

Attendance and punctuality is vital for your child’s education. We encourage your child to strive for high attendance to ensure that they reach their full potential and make the most out of their final year at primary school. After all, we have lots of exciting and immersive activities and experiences planned for them!

PE Information

This term, your child will continue to do PE on a Monday and Thursday. 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 week)
  • Extended Learning Grid (share work on year group Padlet or class email)
  • Year Group Bucket List (share activities on year group Padlet or class email)
  • A piece of Maths and Reading homework in their homework books.


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.
