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 spring term continues with our Stocks and Shares sessions.

Books this Year.

Our focus books this term are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. A curious child, Alice cannot resist the lure of a mysterious and wondrous land that she first visits by way of a rabbit's hole.

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. The story of the orphan Oliver, who runs away from the workhouse only to be taken in by a den of thieves, shocked readers when it was first published. Dickens’s tale of childhood innocence beset by evil depicts the dark criminal underworld of a London peopled by vivid and memorable characters – the arch-villain Fagin, the artful Dodger and the menacing Bill Sikes.


In Science, we will be learning about Evolution & adaptation and Electricity.


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


This term we will be focusing on Spain and features of the country, describing key cities and towns.


With SATs week looming (Week beginning 13th May), we advise you to encourage your child to drink plenty of water, eat a good breakfast and get plenty of sleep so that they get the best out of their lessons.

It is great if they are revising at home but remember they are working hard in lessons and we are currently doing a LOT of Maths and English so we would recommend about 20mins per night and then plenty of fun!

That said, a huge WELL DONE to those children who have decided to take on the SATs Revision Challenge- a great effort from the whole year group! Remember to bring your sheets in this Monday!

SATS WEEK- We would like ALL the children in school by 8:00 am every day of the week of the SATs. We will give them breakfast and get them settled. We have found it makes a big difference to their mood and calms them before the tests.

Finally, please reassure your children that the only thing that matters is that they do their best and their eventual SATs results are only a reflection of six tests in Maths and English, and that it is NOT a reflection of their intelligence and all the wonderful things that make up who they are!
