PE lessons take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays for Year 6 children.  Please come to school dressed in school PE uniform on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Please ensure your child brings a drink bottle to school with them every day - this should contain water or diluted fruit squash.  Your child will be able to refill their bottle during the school day from our special water coolers to keep themselves hydrated.  Children may also bring a healthy snack to eat at playtime - you can find out more about suitable snacks here.  Please do not allow your child to bring any toys, games or other items into school from home.

If you have any questions or concerns about your child and their learning, please do drop into the school office to make an appointment as we are always happy to meet with you.

Home learning

Homework helps to reinforce the learning that has gone on in school during the week. Immersing your child in reading is the most important thing. Children should read at home with an adult at least 5 times a week and this should be recorded in your child's home learning journal. There is also a space to learn spellings, practice maths and information about half-termly projects to be completed at home.  You can find out more about our homework expectations here.  Children are expected to bring their home learning journal and school reading books to school every day.

Online learning resources

We subscribe to various websites which you can use at home to support your child's learning.  Your child's teacher will be able to provide you with the necessary log in details, and these should be stuck in your child's home learning journal.  Click on the links below to access the resources.

Our topic this half term is... Blitzed Britain!

Let's take a step back in time, but not too far back, to find out about what life was really like for our grandparents and great grandparents during the second world war. Perhaps your family have their own stories to tell about life on the Home Front. Why not do your own detective work to find out?

Let's discover why the war broke out, and how Britain managed to come out on top, in spite of the terrible hardships that people had to endure. What was 'Operation Pied Piper' and who was affected  by this? Could you have survived on the rations that were available? Who was Anne Frank and what was her story?

Find out all of these things and much more as we put on our History detective hats and take a trip into the past...

In RE this term we will be focusing on Judaism and exploring the question: What does it mean to grow up?

Our PE will be covering netball and fitness.

Our topic this half term is... Pulse

Crimson, scarlet, burgundy, cherry. Blood flows through our bodies in all its vibrant shades of red. Let’s explore our circulation system. Now, surgeons, don’t be squeamish as we dissect an animal heart and examine the veins, arteries and chambers up close. They all work hard to move blood around our bodies. But, what is blood made up from? What do each of the components do? Why do people give blood? Find out how to keep your heart happy with cardiovascular exercise and healthy food. Weigh up the evidence and persuade others that healthy lifestyle choices are important for a long and healthy life. Hearts pound, flutter and maybe skip a beat. What makes your heart race? Is it a secret? Cross my heart, I won’t tell.

Find out all of these things and much more as we put on our investigative goggles to delve deeper into the Science behind the circulatory system.

In RE this term we will be focusing on Sikhism.

Topic Art Attack!

This term Year 6 will be exposed to a range of artists and their work to enhance creativity skills. Children will learn about a range of artists from different backgrounds and time periods. We will be looking closely at various styles of drawing and painting to allow children to embed these into their own practice. Additionally, children will be able to analyse art work in detail to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of work. 

As we are quickly approaching our SATs period, we will be regularly revising in Reading, Maths and Grammar to ensure children are confident when approaching their examinations.

Topic: Ticket to the world!
