Y6 Curriculum Newsletter for summer term

Welcome to Summer Term!

Welcome back to school for Summer Term! I hope that you are well rested and ready to go! We have a very busy term ahead of us! 


To start off, we will be completing revision for our SATS tests, which you have all been working really hard completing! Remember, not long to go and all you can ever do is try your best! Be sure to be getting lots of rest and early nights in preparation. Eileen is going to be having a session with Year 6 once a week in the lead up to our tests to help us to relax and have a healthy mind set ready for the busy weeks. 


Normal routines will continue: PE with Dave will still be on a Friday but make sure your PE kits are in school at all times. Homework will continue as normal which will mostly consist of SATS papers. There will be no topic homework this half term so you can all focus on revision instead. 


We also have many exciting topics to look forward to. We will be completing our Significant Event in Britain Topic- The Industrial Revolution. The we will be moving on to look at Islamic Civilisation which will involve finding out more about Islamic culture. As well as this, we will be starting our science topic- Evolution and Inheritance, where we will be working scientifically to help us explain different theories!


As well as this, Mrs Webster will be coming in towards the end of the term to start rehearsals and singing for our end of year production. So get practicing your singing and acting voices! 


Once again, the most important thing is that everyone is working hard and enjoying themselves! If anyone has any questions or concerns, ensure you come and talk to me!

Welcome to Year 6! 


Dear Year 6,

Firstly, a big welcome to Year 6, your final year of primary school. We will be having an extremely busy year covering many topics and completing many extra-curricular activities as well! It is my job to not only prepare you for SATs but most importantly to prepare you for high school, where you will need to demonstrate an increased amount of independence. This will ensure that your transition to high school is seamless.



PE will continue on as normal with Dave mostly. Children should have kits in school at all times in case there are any last minute changes to the PE schedule.



Homework will be regular and consistent each week and there will be no variations unless told otherwise. Children should read and complete multiplication practise each night. On a Tuesday, maths, grammar and reading comprehension homework will be given out. This should be handed in on the following Monday at the latest. Reading diaries should be logged in each time you have read and signed. These will be collected in on a Thursday morning. Finally, spellings plus the activity should be completed each week. A test will be held each Friday morning linking to the corresponding week, this is when spelling booklets will be handed in to mark.

Topic homework will continue as normal, once per half term, although around SATS time we will take a break from this due to revision.

Any homework not completed will result in a break time detention so I recommend attending homework club if you are able to as this will give you a head start on homework each week. This will also get you into a good routine ready for high school.


Topics and Extra- Curricular

We will be covering a range of topics this year including Crime and Punishment, Islamic Civilisation, North America and South America. As well as this we will be looking at science topics including the human body, how we see, electricity, living things and evolution. As well as these topics, we will also have our residential to Manor Adventure taking place, which I am sure you are already excited for. And if that isn’t enough, Year 5 and Year 6 will be taking part in the end of year production, so we have many enjoyable activities to look forward to throughout the year.


I hope that you are as excited as I am to start your final year of primary school.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me.
