Year 6



Welcome to Year 6

Hello and welcome to the Autumn Term!

It's all a bit strange at school with all the new rules and systems in place to make sure that we all keep safe but we are looking forward to all the fun and hard work that a year in 6 presents.

It has been all change on the staff front over the summer: we welcome Miss Beeston to our school, straight in at the deep end with Year 6, Mr. Wall has joined us from Year 5 and Miss Rama represents the Deaf Resource Base. Mr. Cook and Mrs. Penfold are still here as the old hands though.


PE sessions

We are asking that children wear their PE kit on Mondays (white / coloured shirt and shorts / leggings worn under a pair of tracksuit bottoms if they wish).

We are not getting changed in class in order to keep the amount of movement within classrooms to as little as possible.



Our first topic is Blood Heart - a scientific unit based on the circulatory system and the effect of modern lifestyles on it. During the course of the unit, we will get our hands on some lamb's hearts, make blood, do art based on the work of Jim Dine and much, much more.


Please find attached links to our curriculum map, ideas for fun things to do at home and the spelling list for Year 5 and 6, taken from the National Curriculum

Year 5 and 6 spelling list


The way that we will be doing homework this year will be different from last year. Please continue to read as much as possible, work on your times tables and have a look at our spellings lists 

but you will also see your children bringing home a bright pink book (so that you can't miss it).

They will be given tasks to carry out at home as well as being a good place to stick in their weekly spellings (which are tested every Monday morning).


Secondary School Applications

You should have / will receive soon, a letter from the local authority about applying for secondary schools.

Normally we would run a meeting at school to go over the form and offer our assistance with any difficulties you might be having.

Unfortunately that cannot happen at the moment. However, we can always be reached by the KS2 email


(You can use that email as a way of getting other questions to us too)


  • Just remember the following points
  • Put down more than one choice - if you don't get your first choice and only have one, you could be sent ANYWHERE in the city

  • Make sure it's done before the deadline (You can keep changing and editing it until midnight of the deadline day)
  • Talk to your children about their thoughts
  • Check out the secondary school websites: many of them have virtual tours in place of open days this year.
