Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!


Welcome to Year 6!


This term our main theme this is Home and Away.


In English, we will be working on our grammar through reading some exciting new texts that will inspire our writing such as The Firework-maker's Daughter by Phillip Pullman.


In Maths, we will be focusing on improving our fluency.  We will also be developing our reasoning and applying skills through solving many different problems.  Please help us practise where you can, especially by supporting your child with learning the time, using money and with their multiplication and division facts. 


Our History will be an exploration into the fascinating world of the ancient Mayan civilisation while in Geography we will be looking a little closer to home by studying the physical and human features of the United Kingdom.


We will continue the theme of 'Home and Away' by enjoying music from around the world and by learning vocabulary related to homes and habitats in French.


We have an exciting year ahead so please see below for some examples from last year of the projects we will be doing. Here you will also find more information on the Year 6 curriculum.


Our Learning Environment

No Pens Day 2023

Year 6 really enjoyed No Pens Day; the children brought in a range of interesting items that were special to them, asked lots of questions and generated good discussion.  It was lovely to find out more about each other, the things that are important to us and why they matter.  

Design Technology: A Mexican Style Salad

Year 6 finished off their Design and Technology unit by making a Mexican style salad; this linked nicely to our learning about the Mayans in History.  We practised different chopping techniques and learnt how to be safe and hygienic when preparing food.  There were mixed reviews on the salad - some of us loved it but some of us were not too keen on coriander!
