Year 6

We hope you all had an exciting yet relaxing Christmas. We are so proud of how hard the children are working this year and look forward to another busy term. After the success of ‘Count down to Christmas’ we are introducing ‘Countdown to the Valentines Bonanza’. More information to follow about the treat nearer to the half term break!

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. 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

To make you aware, our PE days have changed to a Wednesday and Friday. 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)
  • TT Rockstars
  • Spellings from Spelling Shed (in English homework book)
  • Extended Learning Grid (homework grid)
  • Year Group Bucket List
  • A piece of Maths and Reading homework


Last term the children were thoroughly engaged in our World War 2 topic and we’re hoping this will be the case with this term’s new topic too!

We will learn about what Baghdad was like during the early Islamic civilisation and what impact it had on modern day life. We’ll also be studying South America and comparing it to the UK.

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