Welcome to the Year 6 Page

Year 6 Book Character

In shaa Allah you had a good summer and are ready for the year ahead. 

This year we will be building on the excellent  progress the children made in Year 5 to ensure that the children are prepared for their transition to secondary school. 

Please speak to me if there are any questions or concerns.  

Ustadha Djelladj 


During our English Lessons, we will be reading a book by Libby Hathorn. This is a picture book about a young homeless boy.  The children will be analysing  the pictures to understand what is happening as well as think about the personality of the characters. The children will write diary entries,  poetry and use creative writing to describe places.  This term we will focus on fluency and stamina for writing. We will use powerful language to describe settings and emotions 


In guided reading this term, we will be reading Kensuke’s Kingdom by Micheal Morpurgo. The children will  use retrieval and inference skills to answer questions based on the text. They will predict what may happen next and summarise parts of the text. We practise our reading fluency by reading aloud with intonation.  Each week, the children will learn new vocabulary which will help them to understand the text.

Children should be reading at home everyday. We have a range of books, in the class and on Bug Club, that the children have access to. Please ensure that they are recording their reading in their reading journals. We will also be asking children to record interesting phrases and sentences from their reading that can be used in their writing. 


For success in maths  it is important the children are able to use numbers fluently. In Year 6,  children need to have a quick recall of their times tables. We will start this year learning about Place Value. We will learn how to read and write numbers up to 10 million and what each digit represents. We will then learn how to round numbers up to 10 million and  add, subtract, multiply and divide larger numbers. The children have access to IXL and CGP books which they can use to practise their skills. Children should be practising their times tables at home. 


In computing this term Year 6 will be focusing on Online Safety. The children will learn how to keep themselves safe by not sharing personal information online and the importance of a secure password. They will learn how to keep themselves out of danger while using the internet and understand that not all information is correct.


In science this term,  we will be learning about light and sight.  We will learn the difference between a light source and a reflector and how we see. We will be experimenting with light by recording how it travels as well as looking at the advantage of reflective materials. The children will have a good understanding of how light travels and how this links to how we see. 


This term we will be learning about World War II. We will be looking at the causes and consequences of the war as  well as the leaders involved, The children will learn about the links to our local area. They will understand the role that women and people from around the world had in the war. They will look at images and artifacts and discover what this tells us about WWII


P.E lessons will be on Tuesday.  Please ensure that your child comes to school wearing their P:E kit.
