Welcome to the Year 6 Zone!

We have an exciting term ahead of us. Keep checking this page to find out the latest goings on, pictures, videos and highlights for Year 6.

Cross Curricular

As ‘Intrepid Explores’, we will delve into Europe investigating political questions of free movement and borders. Our journey will also take us to the fascinating world of volcanoes! So, please take a look at the links below to extend your learning and immerse yourself in the fiery dimensions of natural geography.


One of our top tips for this year is to always have a good book to read. This means getting into the habit of reading daily and developing an ethos of reading for pleasure. Maybe you could aim to finish a book a week or if it is a longer book, then a book a fortnight.

Year 6 must bring in their books and completed Reading Records everyday as these will be checked daily with completed books changed on a regular basis.


In Science we will be looking at Living Things and their Habitats until half term and then Animals Including Humans until Christmas. We will be classifying, investigating, observing over time, predicting, testing and creating 3D models of the human circulatory and digestive systems!


This term in Literacy, we will be making links with our cross curricular topic and studying the story ‘Oranges in No Man’s Land’ by Elizabeth Laird. Year 6 will learn and practice using a variety of techniques to write a narrative from another culture.


In Maths we will be looking at place value, the four operations and reasoning. Arithmetic tests will be held every Friday and children are encouraged to learn their times tables.

Spelling and Handwriting

Spellings are handed out weekly and there will be a spelling test every Friday. Year 6 will have an opportunity to practice their spellings in class during one of our handwriting sessions and must continue to practice them at home.

PE and Music

PE and Music is on Wednesdays. All children are required to wear appropriate PE kit.


All Year 6 are expected to wear full school, uniform including blazer and tie.


Please note that all Year 6 will sit regular assessments in preparation for SATs.

CATs Test will be conducted at the end of September/ beginning of October 2017.
