This term we will be following the Chester Disocean planning to complete units of work in the units: 'God' and 'Kingdom of God'

PE      PE.jpg

PE is every Tuesday afternoon and every other Monday afternoon. Children should come to school on those days in their PE kits. Children should have the correct PE kit of dark shorts and a coloured school T-Shirt to match their team. A tracksuit is allowed for outdoor PE in colder weather and this includes the school hoodie (hoodies must only be worn on PE days). The correct footwear must also be worn. Girls must tie their hair back and remove or cover earrings.


Other Subjects

The children will complete learning challenges in:

Geography: To understand more about the human and physical geography of The UK. Challenge: To present information about a city in the UK that was bombed during World War 2.

History: To understand more about World War 2 with a focus on how it affected children. Challenge: To present a 2 page information booklet about children during World War 2.

Design Technology: To design and make a hand controlled puppet using sewing techniques.

Art: To create a World war 2 scene using tone, line and colour in the style of Lowry.

Computing: Digital Literacy: To learn how to use Microsoft Powerpoint to create a short film showcasing our school.

Music:   'Happy' and 'Classroom Jazz' 


Homework: All year 6 children are expected to complete homework in Maths, Reading, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. This is to support the SATs tests in May 2024. This is non-negotiable and if the work is not completed at home, it must be completed in school during a break or lunchtime. This also includes regular reading using the levelled books in school.

Spellings will be taught and tested in class on a 4 week cycle, giving children more time to practise and consolidate spelling patterns. The spelling patterns being taught can be downloaded on this page along with the common exception words for Year 5/6. Reading should be completed 3-4 times a week, with the aim to complete one school reading book per week. This weekly reading should be recorded in the reading record and handed in when asked for. When a book is finished, 3 comprehension questions should be recorded to show understanding of the text. If a child is on Level 15 or higher then a book review must be completed.

Let's have a great Autumn Term
