Year 6



Welcome to Year 6






Our enquiry question for the Spring term is:


 How has the exploration of Antarctica past and present helped our understanding of the importance of this geographical region?







This topic looks at heroic exploration of the past and present as we will be following the Antarctica Quest 21, which is commemorating 100 years since Ernest Shakleton's expedition.

Literacy - Spring term


In year 6 we look at the Highwayman narrative poem, biographies and Harry Potter and  'The Philosopher's Stone'. 

The love of reading...... can you guess what the focus of our reading will be this term?

Year 6 use 1:1 devices to support our learning. The children use a range of apps in Microsoft Teams and have access to all the teaching resources.

Our key concepts run through all of our learning.

Maths homework is set on a Tuesday and is to be handed in by the following Monday and English/ topic related activities are set on a Friday to be completed by the folling Thursday. There is an expectation that children read at least 4 times across the week and that they work on their set times table on Rock Stars.

The weekly homework will usually involve a maths task, a literacy or topic based activity and a spelling pattern or year 5/6 words task to consolidate previous learning. 



There is a drop in homework support session on Thursdays for children in year 6 with Mrs Usher .
