We test times tables on: Friday

Our daily homework is to read to an adult at home and practise our times tables and spelli

ngs in order to ensure we make the best possible progress during our time in Year 6.

We encourage children to access TTRockstars to help them learn their times tables. We also run weekly TTRockstars sessions in school so all children can access the technology.

Autumn – World War Two 

In English, we study the novel Once by Morris Gleitzman, learning all about Felix, an orphan who escapes from an orphanage to find his mum and dad. We follow his journey as he realises what is happening in Poland and what the Nazis are really doing.  

In History, we start the term learning about life in Germany after the signing of the Treaty of Versailles and the impact that both this and Great Depression had on the German economy and social classes. We learn about Hitler and what caused the start of the Second World War. After this we study the evacuation, blitz and rationing alongside the impact of war in Britain.  

In Geography we will compare the physical and human differences between North and South America as well as

 making comparisons with the United Kingdom.

In Science we will be looking at Living Things and Their Habitats, looking at the reproduction of plants and animals.


Spring – Crime and Punishment 

In English, we study the novel Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz. We follow Alex as he learns that his uncle was a spy and he is set to follow him in his footsteps, fighting criminals.  

In History, we learn all about the different crimes and punishments throughout history, from the Romans and Medieval period to the Tudors, we then compare these with Modern day.  

In Geography we study Extreme Earth, studying natural disasters. We look at what causes these and the impact which they have on society, as well as studying how communities recover from these disasters.  

In Science we will be looking Evolution and Inheritance; going back to the days of Charles Darwin, to see how we have evolved over time.


Summer – Medicine through Time 

In English, we study the novel Skellig by David Almond. We follow the character as he discovers something strange in the garage of his new home.  

In History, we discover Medicine through the ages, learning about the medical practices of prehistoric civilisations comparing them to different periods of time and modern day. We understand medieval medicine and the events during the Black Plague, recognising health issues stemmed from poor hygiene. We also learn about the importance of the NHS and the role it has played in British health care 

In Geography, we will study natural resources, identifying land as being an important natural resource, considering the ways in which it is used, how it has changed and factors limiting the ways it can be used. We will identify some alternative sources of energy production to coal and gas, including a range of clean, renewables and explore ways which we can reduce the carbon footprint. 

In Science we will be looking at Light and Electricity, at times linking the two together, but also looking at natural light. This topic links well with our Geography, as we can consider different forms of energy.


Class Displays

Please see below, the displays the children created during transition. Our theme was relationships; we used the book, 'The Bear and the Piano' as our stimulus.


Our learning in Year 6 so far!

Watch this space for pictures of what we have been upto in class.

During the first couple of days back at school we created watercolour poppies to decorate our classroom doors as part of our topic. 


For World First Aid Day, Year 6 learnt what they need to do if someone is choking.
