We are funny, we are bright, in year 6, we get things right!


Attitudes and values are what you need to know,

If you follow them, they will show you where to go.

Love, honesty, respect and courage,

These are some of the things we try to encourage.

Our topic is ‘Hola! Mexico’

This topic is music and geography based as we learn about the traditional music style of Mexico and the physical and  human geography of the country. We will also look at traditional celebrations of Mexico and the ancient civilisations of the country.

Books: Our guided reading book this half term is 'Boy Overboard', the story of an Afghan refugee; and the literature we are studying in English is ‘Macbeth’. We will take part in a workshop on March 7th which will immerse ourselves into the story of Macbeth.

Homework Information:

Homework: Homework will be set every Tuesday and should be completed by the following Monday. There will be a grammar and punctuation task in their homework books plus Mathletics and Timestable Rockstars. Children are expected to complete 1000 points for Mathletics each week. This may increase as we approach SATs week which commences May 13th.

Reading: We will have guided reading 4 times a week where children will be heard to read for part of the lesson at least once a week. We expect that every child should have a reading book in school which they can read for the pleasure. Each child will also now have a levelled reading book for them to read. They should still be heard to read at home which should be recorded in their reading records.

Year 6 Suggested Reading List

English: Every week, there will be homework set on an aspect of grammar and punctuation which we have covered in class. This will be stuck in their homework books.

Maths: Mathletics homework will also be set on and to be completed throughout the week. Login details for these will be in your child’s homework diaries.

Spellings: These will be given out every Tuesday to be learnt over the week and then tested the following Monday. We will have spelling lessons 4 times a week, these may sometimes link to the spellings your child has to learn.

During the winter months, PE may sometimes still be outside, so please consider a tracksuit for those colder periods. Tuesdays will normally be inside PE and Fridays will normally be outside PE.
