Autumn Term!

Welcome to Class 6!

The adults that will be working with you in Year 6 are:

Mrs Yates

Mrs Alderson 

Miss English

Miss Timewell


Remember that school starts at 8.45am this year and finishes at 3.15pm.

Our P.E day will be a Tuesday and kits need to be in school.   We will be going outside as much as the weather allows us to so please bring appropriate kit.   

Spellings will be given on a Monday with the test being completed on a Friday.



Our class text this half term will be Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz.


In year 6 we have daily guided reading lessons.   These lessons last for 45 minutes and not only focus on comprehension but fluency, knowledge of vocabulary and prediction skills.  Reading lessons in Year 6 will allow the children to experience a wide range of texts types and authors.    In addition to the daily reading lessons children will experience '60 second reads'  these are designed to build reading speed and stamina (a vital skill for the SATS).

Children are encouraged to read daily and reading books and reading records should be in school every day.



This half term we will focus on securing our knowledge of place value in numbers up to 1,000,000 and decimals up to 3 decimal places.    We will also further develop our understanding of the four rules of number (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and use formal written methods to calculate with whole numbers and decimals.    Later in the half term we will calculate using fractions and whole numbers.   We will complete a timed (30 minutes) arithmetic test each week and will complete daily quick maths sessions to develop fluency and recall.    

Fluency and Recall Practice: 

Weekly practice of Times Tables (Maths Shed) and KIRFs (Key Instant Recall Facts) is expected to support fluency and recall skills. These activities will help students become more confident in their mathematical abilities. 

Children are encouraged to 'play' on Maths Shed every week.  Assignments are set by us each week to try and earn more points than other class mates (and the rest of the school!) In turn, this should help them develop their knowledge of known number facts and increase their confidence in spelling.

Come on Year 6- let's be the best! 


This half term we will be learning all about Crime and Punishment.

In this crime and punishment unit, children will build on their knowledge of periods in history that they have studied through KS2. Children will explore using different historical disciplinary concepts, how crime and punishment has changed over time in Britain. They will explore what was seen as a crime over time and the different gruesome punishments that were handed out to criminals. The children will find out about the development of the police force from the Victorian period right through to the new millennium.
