Year 6

English: This term (Summer), we will be looking at the genres of poetry and balanced arguments drawing on our focus text ‘The Final Year’. As well as some fictional writing based on a short film.  We will finally look at play-scripts using the script chosen for our end of Year 6 production.  We will also read 'The Garbage King' as our class story.  Along side this we will complete revision work on spelling, punctuation and grammar in preparation for the Year 6 SAT's (WB: 13th May 2024).


Maths: We will be looking at angles,(measuring, working out missing angles, sizes) time, statistics, co-ordinates, shape, rotation, reflection, symmetry.  As well as revision for the Year 6 SAT's.


For a more detailed overview, please see the curriculum overview at the bottom of this class page.



This term the children will bring home a CGP study guide for English and Maths along with a homework book for English and Maths.  The children will be set specific pages to tackle each week and they should support the learning that is taking place in class at that time.  Later in the term the children will be given parts for the end of Year 6 production and they will need to learn their lines.


In addition to this set homework, each week your child should read aloud most days and their reading record books signed. They should also continue to work on learning all their times tables up to 12x12. 


Class Routines

PE will take place on a Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning. Children should come into school in their PE kit on these days. No earrings or watches are allowed. Children need to have a blue PE shirt, blue shorts and/or jogging bottoms, a warm jacket, trainers and socks.



As ever, if you require any further information, please come and chat to the class teacher after school or send an email via the school office
