Welcome to Year 6

Dear Parents,

Next week in English, we will be continuing our work on newspaper reports. The children will be using the notes they gathered for homework to organise and write a newspaper report, thinking carefully about the specific genre features. In maths, we will be recapping prime numbers and square and cube numbers, as well as applying our understanding of the four operations to multi-step problems. This will require use of written methods as well as mental calculations. In history, we will be building on our understanding of the Suffragette Movement by debating and answering thought-provoking questions such as: do you think the Suffragette’s actions were justified? What do you think life would have been like if they hadn’t succeeded? In internet safety,  we will be looking at determining the validity of websites and other sources of information and being wary of manipulation like scams.

Just a few additional things to mention:


  • Please find attached the year 6 autumn term curriculum map, which outlines what the children will be learning in each subject area. If you have any questions regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher.
  • Today a letter regarding PGL went home with your child, outlining costs and providing the opportunity to pay in installments. Any children who were absent today or who participated in Physifun this afternoon will receive their letters on  Monday.
  • The children also received their first piece of weekend homework  today. Usually the children have two weekends to complete this homework, but as it falls over the half term, we have given this weekend and the first weekend back for the children to complete. The homework is therefore due on Monday 5th November and we have attached the homework for your information.
  • Next Tuesday 16th October and Thursday 18th October are parent consultations, please use the online booking system to sign up to a slot. We look forward to seeing you then.

Many thanks and we hope you have a lovely weekend.
The year 6 team
