Summer Term 2024
 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 Amari and the Night Brothers by B.B. Alston – a supernatural adventure, which follows the life of Amari, whose brother has recently gone missing. Amari finds herself battling evil magicians, living with a weredragon and trying out for the Bureau of Supernatural Affairs all whilst trying to solve the mystery of her brother. After that, we will enjoy My Brother is a Superhero by David Solomons – our transition novel ready to move up to secondary school. This is a hilarious story about Luke, who is a comic-mad eleven-year-old who shares a treehouse with his older brother, Zach. Luke’s only mistake is to need a wee right at the wrong moment. While he’s gone, an alien gives his undeserving, never-read-a-comic-in-his-life brother superpowers, then tells him to save the universe!

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.


As writers, we will be writing our own narratives inspired by the book Skellig. We will also be writing our own persuasive letters.


Then in Maths, we will be learning new topics such as coordinates, area, perimeter and volume, and continuing our learning of algebra.

Project Learning

We will be starting the term with our new History Project, Maafa where we will be learning about Africa, past and present. Our other projects this term include : Circulatory System, Our Changing World, Trailblazers Barrier Breakers and Food For Life.

Physical Education

All PE will be taught outside and this term we will be focusing on dodgeball. Our PE lessons will be on a Thursday afternoon. This will continue until the week beginning 20th May where we will move back to a Tuesday.  Please ensure your child has a warm PE in school each week.


In June, Year 6 will be going on their residential to St Ives where we will take part in a range of incredible activities include: surfing, pottery making, visiting the Eden Project. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the residential, please feel free to get in touch with myself or Mrs wood.
