Year 6

Welcome to Class 6 smiley

Autumn Term

In this term, our Geography topic is The Amazing Americas. We will be learning about North and South America  by locating the major countries and comparing different  environments. This links nicely to our English unit where we will be reading a class novel ' A Journey to the River Sea' by Eva Ibbotson. This novel is set in the Amazon rainforest and will provide plenty of writing and speaking and listening opportunities. 


In Maths, we will be learning place value, 4 number calculations and fractions.


In R.E. we are completing the unit Loving .


P.E takes place on Thursday and children will need a full kit. 




Maths homework is set on a Friday and is due in on a Monday

English homework is set on Friday and is due in on a Friday.


This is a really important year for the children. I would appreciate your full support with encouraging your children to complete all pieces of homework, reading daily and learning times tables and spellings.


Many thanks for your continued support.


Miss Hinchley and Mrs Hulse.


Useful information



English Homework

Set on Friday and will be due in on the following Friday.


Maths Homework

Set on Friday and will be due in on Monday. This will be in the form of an interactive game on the Abacus or MyMaths website . Sometimes it will be a worksheet in the child's homework book.



Children are expected to read every night. Please ask your child questions about what they have read in order to check their understanding .



Children will be continuing with the Read Write Inc spelling programme. They will bring their Log Books home every night and will need to practise the spellings that they have logged. It is very important that the children bring their Log Books back to school the following day.

In addition to this, children need to be learning the spellings on the Year 5 and 6 spelling list. On a Monday I will set the children 6 spellings for the children to learn and they will be tested on Friday.
