Maths: Times Table Rockstars

:X-Tables are extremely important in all aspects of maths learning and understanding. The children are encouraged to play TT-Rockstars regularly and we ask that you support this by giving them opportunities to practise at home. 


This term our topic is Britain at War!  We will study the causes, events and consequences of the First and Second World Wars, the influence of new inventions on warfare, how life in Great Britain was affected and the legacy of the wars in the post-war period. The children will complete a Homework project based on our Topic or Science unit.


 Our new Science topic will teach the children all about human reproduction and ageing. We will study animal life cycles, including the human life cycle. We will explore human growth and development to old age, including the changes experienced during puberty and human reproduction.  We will also be studying Properties of Materials.

Physical Education

This half term, Year 6 will have PE with Mr Troman on a Wednesday and with Miss Ebbutt on a Friday. Your child will need to come to school in their PE uniform. This consists of a yellow T-shirt, blue shorts and trainers.

In Year 6, we are very enthusiastic about reading and books! We want to encourage children's reading for pleasure and enjoyment. As part of our school provision, children will have a school library book. This should come to and from school daily for the children to read and enjoy. Please read with your child and foster a life-long love of reading.

Struggling to engage your child with books at home? Please let Miss Ebbutt know.
