Term 6


– PE will be on Tuesday (Athletics – outdoors) and Friday (Rounders – outdoors). Please ensure full PE kit is worn on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please name all kit.

– On Monday, Homework & Spellings will be uploaded to the website below. If your child needs a paper copy of the homework, they will be provided with one to stick into their book. Homework books, online apps and reading records need to be completed and if necessary brought into school on Friday for your teacher to check.  In Year 6, the expectation is that homework should total around 2 hours a week: this should be a combination of spelling practice, online apps and set homework task (Maths/English/Foundation).

– Reading at home in Year 6 should happen every day. This can be in a variety of forms such as: children reading independently, sharing a chapter together and reading on  Fonetti (if your teacher has given you access). Also, remember reading to your child and listening to audiobooks is extremely beneficial too! Reading records should be signed off by an adult but we expect Year 6 children to record their own independent reading journey themselves. Reading records should be transferred between home and school everyday. Please ensure Accelerated Reader quizzes are completed within 48 hours of finishing the book. See below for the links to assist with reading using apps and AR Quizzes. We expect every child to complete a minimum of 3 quizzes every term.

Forest School – wellies/boots and waterproofs. Children should have these in school if they wish to use the playscape and field in the winter months.

We will be combining our collaborative and mathematical skills through real-life themed projects.


We will continue to showcase what talented, creative writers we are through non-chronological reports and narrative writing based upon The Golden Cage: a deliciously dark fairytale. 


  • Art: This term, we will use our artistic skills to design and create a jaw-dropping set design for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. 
  • PE: On Tuesdays, we will be practising our Athletic skills to get ready for Sports Day. On Fridays, we will be developing our Rounders skills. 
  • Computing: We will be introduced to the micro:bit as an input, process and output device that can be programmed. We will familarise ourselves with the device itself and the programming environment, before creating our own programs. Finally, we will then run our programs on the device.
  • Geography: We will be looking at our region and thinking about areas which could be developed so it is sustainable in the future.
  • PHSE: We will think about how money is used in the wider world. We will discuss what a financial risk is; why people take risks with money and some consequences of this. We will explore how to see the real value of products by being critical consumers and also consider influences that advertisers try to use to encourage people to spend money. Having learned about ways people can spend money, we will learn about budgeting, and we will discuss how people may choose or need to prioritise spending.
  • RE: We will learn about the teachings and beliefs of Buddhists. 
  • Science: We will conduct a TAPs investigation and complete a project based on a specific scientist.
