A Few Reminders:

PE: Children have PE every Tuesday and Friday this half term. Children should come dressed in their PE kit on these days. 

Water: Children are encouraged to bring in a bottle of water each day which they can access at any time.  Please ensure your child’s name is on their bottle. 

Snack: If you wish to send in a snack, please make sure it is healthy - no chocolate, crisps or sweets. We are a nut free school. Snack can also be purchased from the school kitchen using credit on your child’s dinner money account.

The Curriculum 

For more information on what we will be doing in the autumn term please click here.

You can also have a look on SeeSaw to see what we're up to. 


In English we will be using the text A Place for me: Stories of the Windrush Generation by Floella Benjamin where we will develop our understanding of non-fiction texts and create a report based on the book.

In maths this term we will be focusing on place value up to 10,000,000 and then looking at the four operations. 

For more information on the curriculum - please find the year 6 overview here.


Homework and supporting schoolwork at home is more important than ever.  Our homework will continue the focus on spellings required for your child (Y3-6 words) and fluency of arithmetic skills. This will switch to a revision focus later in the year.  Reading remains the most important thing to do to support your child's learning. See the list of Recommended Y6 reads for ideas for good books at the right level.

Thank you,

Miss L Selby-Hughes
