Summer Term 2023
 Year 6

Welcome to Year 6! Here you will find all of the key information about what the children are getting up to this term. The door for Year 6 will be opened at 8:45am and will close at 8.55am for registration. Please ensure children arrive on time to ensure that they can settle into the school day successfully.


Our first novel this term is Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll– a mystery story set during the Second World War  that follows the adventures of Olive and Cliff, two children who have been evacuated to Devon. After that, we will enjoy My Brother is a Superhero by David Solomons – a brilliantly funny book about a young boy named Luke who is comic-mad. Reading continues to be an important part of the day. Please ensure that your child reads at home daily and that this is recorded in their reading record. Your child’s reading book and reading record need to be sent into school daily to enable us to read at school, change books and monitor your child’s reading progress. A mixture of them reading to an adult as well as reading independently is encouraged in order for children to develop their fluency and comprehension. Our library day is Monday.


As writers, we will be writing our own warning stories, inspired by the story ‘The Giant’s Necklace’.  We’ll also be exploring poetry and creating writing linked to ‘The Hobbit’.


Then in Maths, we will be learning about shape, measure, area and perimeter. We will also be looking at statistics.

Project Learning

We will be starting the term with our new History Project, Britain at War  where we will be learning about the causes, events and consequences of the First and Second World Wars. Our other projects this term include :Light Theory, Bees Beetles and Butterflies, and Distortion and Abstraction.

Physical Education

All PE will be taught outside and this term we will be continuing to focus on athletics followed by rounders after half term. Our PE lessons will be on a Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has a warm PE in school each week.


In June, we will be going on our residential to S Ives. We are all really looking forward to taking part in a range of exciting activities such as surfing, visiting the Eden Project, sightseeing and much more!
