Year 6

Welcome to the Year 6 web page.

Thank you to all the parents that attended our recent Parents Evenings and SEN Parents Evenings – it was lovely to meet you all and chat about your child and their transition into Y6.


Our exciting curriculum involves lots of motivating and stimulating subjects, which I hope your child has mentioned:

Literacy = “War of the Worlds” – flashback story, Mars poems, persuasive texts, Dragons Den activities on designing a Space Academy and a Rover to explore Mars.

“Goodnight Mr Tom” and “The Diary of Anne Frank”.

Maths = primarily focused on 4 operations last half term and now looking at other areas such as area, perimeter, statistics, measures etc.

Science = how to survive on Mars and comparing the possibility of life on Mars or Venus.

RE = “The incarnation of God” and “How the tawhid creates a sense of belonging to the Muslim Community”



Please spend time encouraging your child to:

  • read regularly (15 mins before bed time)
  • practise and retain spellings
  • practise times tables (maybe as you are brushing your teeth???)
  • complete homework tasks (IPC, French, Maths)



It is all booked for the 8th July – 12th July – so far deposits have been paid.

Please feel to pay instalments through the year with your school payment book – once again I look forward to this exciting adventurous but exhausting week!!!
