Year 6 (6KR & 6CH)

Welcome Back (What's the Big Idea?)

We hope you all had a good holiday and are now all refreshed and ready for the start of this year.
During the year we will be looking at 'Big Ideas', which starts off during Autumn term with Exploration & Discovery and The Living World. During the Spring term, we will be looking at Classic Literature and British Values. We finish our Summer term by looking at Conflict and Resolution.

Educational Trips and Visits

During this year, we have several visits and trips planned, which include the British History Museum, IMPs (QMC visit), France, Ruddington and Nottingham Trent University.
More details regarding each of these will be provided via MarvellousMe nearer the time.

Maths! No Problem

In Maths, we will be following the Maths! No Problem program.


Each week, your child will have a set of words to learn and remember. Please do spend just 5 minutes a day going over their spellings with them.


The autumn term starts with our online safety sessions, which are part of the Digital citizenship & technology lesson. We follow this up with Heroes & Villains.

Books this Autumn Term

Our focus books this term are The Egyptian Echo by Paul Dowswell. Why DID the Egyptians build the pyramids? What do those squiggly hieroglyphics really mean? Why did Pharaohs wear snakes in their hats? Find out in the Egyptian Echo.

Pig Heart Boy by Malorie Blackman. You're thirteen. All you want is a normal life. But most normal kids don't need heart transplants.
So there's this doctor. He says there's a chance for you. But he also says it's experimental, controversial and risky. And it's never been done before.


In Science, we will be learning about Light, Classification of living things, Human & animal digestion and Circulation.


P.E. takes place every week on Wednesday afternoons. Please ensure that your child has their bag with them.


The children, get their first taste of French to complement their knowledge of Spanish.
