Class Teachers: Mrs Cotterill (Mon - Wed)  & Mrs Appleby (Thurs & Fri)

Support Staff: Mrs Mitchell, Mrs Black


Year 6

English: This term, we will be looking at the genres of setting descriptions and letter writing, drawing on our focus text ‘Holes’. Using this as our stimuli, we will be focusing on many grammatical features: fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases, figurative language, active and passive voice and formal writing techniques.


Maths: We will be looking at place value and the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). A large proportion of our learning in the autumn term will be focused on the topic of fractions.


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



Alternating Maths and English homework will be sent home every week on a Monday and then marked the following Monday. Please remind your child to bring in their Homework folder every Monday.


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 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.

On Thursday afternoon (starting on the 14th September), children will be going swimming. Children should come into school in their PE kit on these days and bring their swimming kit with them: swimming costume/shorts, hat, goggles (optional) and towel.
