Year 6

Welcome to the class 6T page!  This term, our topic is ‘Britain at War’ and we are going to be learning about both World War One and World War Two.  We will begin learning how and why the First World War occurred, the life of soldiers in the trenches and some famous war poetry which will then support us in understanding the start of World War Two and what that meant for life in Britain.  We will understand the reasons why we celebrate Remembrance Day and will create art work inspired by this.  During this term, we will also be heading off on our residential visit to Carlton!

Our Curriculum 


It is vitally important to read regularly and in year six we expect children to read at least three times per week and have their planner signed. During lessons we will read numerous texts, take part in class discussions and answer comprehension questions. Currently our class novel is Stay Where you are and then Leave, which will help to develop our reading and will provide inspiration for our writing.

Persistence and Perseverance

This is a very important year for all children in year 6.  It is vitally important this year that the children read at home, practise their spellings and learn their times tables.  In May 2020, the children will be sitting their SATs, it is important that we work together to ensure that the children are as prepared and as confident as possible ready for this.

Extra Bits


The Carlton Residential visit will be taking place in the final week of the first half term.  There will be upcoming meetings and kit lists issued to support you in what the children will need to take with them.  This is a very exciting time for both the children and staff!



Each week children receive a piece of maths and English homework based on the learning that has taken place this week. The homework is set on a Friday and is expected to be handed in on Wednesday morning. Any problems regarding homework please contact a member of staff (6T).
