Year 6

Welcome BACK to the ongoing journey through Year 6

We would like to welcome all parents, carers and children to term 3 and 4.

Term 3: The Circulatory system.

Blood flows through our bodies in all its vibrant shades of red.

In this age where childhood obesity is on the rise, it is important that the children understand the role of a healthy heart in maintaining healthy lifestyles. In term 3 we take year 6 on a scientific journey into the beating heart of the human body.


In English, we focus on ‘The Lost Happy Endings’ by Carol-Ann Duffy, this beautiful picture book will act as the starting point for a variety of writing tasks and journeys deeper into the text.


Term 4: Greetings from Antarctica!

Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands…vast wilds, hostile territories incredibly beautiful yet often deadly.

We explore the polar regions, the children will use maps, globes, atlases and digital sources to locate continents and countries and describe key features and characteristics of these locations.

Our text will be Shackleton’s Journey by William Grill – as we recount the last great polar exploration, with all its challenges, horrors and setbacks. A story of great strength and perseverance through the coldest and harshest of conditions.


We hope you enjoy the Spring term with us; an exciting term full of stories and challenges.


This term, our PE days (when the children should come to school in their PE kit) will be: Tuesday and Thursday.


Homework: Daily reading (for at least 15mins), Spellings to learn (spelling test on Fridays), Times tables (using Times Table Rock Stars APP)
