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 ‘Frozen Kingdoms’

Our topic is ‘Frozen Kingdoms’. This topic is geography and history based as we learn about  the expedition as led by Ernest Shackleton as well as understanding the geography of the polar regions. We will study the sinking of the Titanic and investigate the disaster like detectives.

Books: The book we are studying in Literacy is, ‘Shackleton’s Journey’.

Homework Information:

Homework: Homework will be set every Monday and should be completed in the orange homework book by the following Monday.

Reading: We have whole class guided reading 3 times a week where children will be heard read to an adult.

We expect every child will have a reading book in school which they can read for pleasure. They should still be heard to read at home which should be recorded in their diaries. This is a great way to encourage reading and keep your child interested in books.

Year 6 Suggested Reading List

English: Every week, we will set grammar homework to support the learning being completed in class.

Maths: Maths homework will also be set on or 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 Monday to be learnt over the week and then tested the following Monday. We will have daily spelling lessons, which link to the spellings your child has to learn.

PE will be on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please ensure that on these days, your child is sent into school wearing their PE kit. During the winter months, PE may still be outside, so please consider a tracksuit for those colder periods. May we politely remind you that our school PE kit should be either the embroidered tops and blue shorts, or plain tops and navy blue shorts/tracksuit.
