Year 6


This term, our topic is entitled ‘The Blue Planet’. The children have decided to learn about mysteries of the planet such as The Bermuda Triangle and Atlantis, dinosaurs and evolution and space. Rather broad, but we shall try to accommodate! Much of this will be learnt through our English, Science and Computing curriculum.



PE will take place on a Wednesday afternoon. They will doing gymnastics and hockey. All kit must be named. Please ensure that children bring their PE kits in on Mondays and leave them in school until Friday. We would recommend that children bring a water bottle.



Homework will be handed out weekly on a Wednesday and must be returned by the following Monday. The children will have encountered similar activities in class prior to receiving the homework. They should only spend 45 minutes on their homework. If it takes any longer, please write a little note on the bottom. If you need clarification, please do not hesitate to ask. Mrs Cartwright will mark the homework with the class to enable the children to clarify any misunderstandings. They will also be given spellings. This term we will be completing various tests and assessments to prepare the children for working under particular conditions. We will be sending some of these home for you to look through with the children.


If children or parents have any concerns about homework, please come in and see me at the end of the school day and I will do my utmost to help.




We shall be holding a meeting on the 6th March at 4pm and 5pm to give you a little more information about the SATs and to give you the opportunity to ask any questions.
