I can’t quite believe it’s the last full term! I hope that you had a wonderful Easter holiday and that everyone is well-rested and ready to take on the continuing challenges of year 6. Our value this term is perseverance. In Term 6, our value is courage. I


In Year 6 this term, much of our learning will be based on the theme of the Ancient Greeks which is a history-based topic. Further information about what we will be studying this term is included on the next page. As their final (full) term in primary school, there is a lot to squeeze in. We will be completing our SATs shortly in May, something that children have been preparing for all throughout KS2. In Term 6, we will be starting to think about preparing children for their transition to secondary school as well as some exciting leaver’s activities – watch this space for those!


We will also be putting together and performing a play at the end of term. This is always a lot of fun. Our PE days continue to be on Wednesday and Thursday. Children will come home in their PE kits on Thursday so that they can be washed if needed. Please make sure that PE kits are in school wherever possible in case they are needed. Trainers can also be bought into school for children to change into during break and lunch times.

Homework remains unchanged and is set on Friday and due in the following Thursday. This will consist of a mixture of Reading, Spelling and Maths activities as well as some topic related tasks. All home learning tasks will enable your child to consolidate their learning and revise different topics so will be closely linked to the learning in the classroom. Near the end of the academic year, we will be increasing the amount of home learning to help prepare children for their transition to secondary school. Please encourage your child to complete their home learning and let me know if there is anything I can help with. We encourage the children in year 6 to take an increasing responsibility for their learning and complete extra study if required.


Websites such as Times Table Rockstars and Spelling Shed (which is updated regularly) continue to be invaluable, but children may also want to look at sites such as ‘My Mini Maths’ or ‘BBC Bitesize’ to help them practice key skills. Please let me know if your child has lost their log-in details. If there are any aspects relating to teaching and learning in Year 6 that you would like to discuss further or if there are issues that crop up which you would like to talk about, please do get in touch.

Emails can be directed to the school office and the office staff will forward them on to me.
