Year 6 2019 - 2020

Miss Wilson

Welcome to Year 6!

AutumnTerm 2019

We are all very excited to be in Year 6 and are looking forward to what the year holds.


This term we will be leanring about WW2. We will explore who was involved and why it started. Later on in the term we will be considering what life would have been like during WW2. We will look at the importance of farm to food and even have the opportunity to follow the WW2 motto Make Dand Mend to upcycle old peices of material. 

Please have a look at our Class Newsletter (attached on this webpage) to see what else the children will be learning about!


Mental Maths-  maths hommework will be marked on a Friday. Please star any questions the children have found particluarly diffiuclt so that it can be explained to them when they are marking it. 

Spelling - spelling homework will be given each Friday. The children will be given a spelling rule to learn and will be tested on these every Friday. They will be provided with an activity to help them learn their spellings. Please practise these as much as possible. 

Reading - children are expected to read for 20 minutes every evening, either to themselves are to an adult. Please monitor how often your child is reading and acknowledge this by signing their homework diary every week. 

English - The children will be given a writing, reading or a SPAG task to be completed every Friday in their green homework books. This will be linked to the learning they are doing in class. 

On occasion, children may be sent home additional Maths or English worksheets, to further practise what they have been doing in class.
