Look what we've been up to recently ...
Last half term’s topic was The Victorians. We focused on history and compared Victorian times to modern time. The children researched schooling in Victorian times and what jobs children would have to do to earn money. We also focused on the timeline of the Victorian Era and key momental events that happened. We were lucky enough to go on a trip to Cannon Hall and were servants for the day! We cooked our own leek and potato soup with homemade bread and butter. We even made a delicious fruit crumble with custard.It was very yummy and some children even had seconds!
Look at some of our pictures...

Y6 Curriculum Overview 23-24 - Link
This term we will be studying...
(A study of Maps around the World!)
Each week your child will be set homework in the following areas:
- Topic Based Homework (topic web sheet)
Reading at Home
Children will also be expected to cpmplete reading at home to an adult. The expected amount is at least 4 reads of 20 minutes per week it is vital that your child completes this as it supports the learning that takes place in the classroom
All reading at home should be recorded in the reading log book so that children can earn rewards for their efforts.
Individual spellings will be sent home with each child to learn on a weekly basis
Each half term children will be given a 'topic web' (see image below). This 'web' calls for a variety of skills to be used from across the curriculum. All of the suggested ideas link to our current topic and should be tackled over the course of the half term. (Hand each piece in as it is completed). This homework is designed to enable families to tackle homework at their own pace helping pupils maintain a broad and balanced homework currciulm whilst supporting their mental health and wellbeing.
Further Homework Support
Purple Mash is a fantastic resource that allows your child to word process, create images, create code and much much more. Every child has a login for Purple Mash and this can be used both at school and at home. Please click on the LINK above to link to this site.
Please ask your child's teacher if you require a new username and password.
Additional times table challenges can be created from the website below.
More online games to support learning
All classes in Y6 get a chance to work with the Elite Coaches on either a Thursday or a Friday. To make changing between classes easier, we would prefer pupils to come to school wearing their official Green/Black PE kit on Friday instead of their regular uniform.
This term we may be doing athletics outside. Children will need to wear their school black PE shorts/black tracksuit bottoms & t-shirt for these lessons. Black school hoodies maybe worn over the top to keep pupils warm for the rest of the day. As this is the uniform for the day we ask that children wear the official school PE kit rather than sports clothing from other clubs etc.
