Year 6


Our topic for this term is all about the Ancient Greeks and our investigative title is 'How have the ancient Greeks influenced our world today?'. It is a history based topic, so we will be using sources and artefacts from the past to help us inform the present. Please see the topic web (below) for further information about our learning this term.   

PE & Forest School

PE will be with Mrs St Louis on Tuesday afternoons. Wednesday afternoons will be both PE and Forest School with Mr Jones.  Please ensure that the children come into school on these days wearing their school PE kit: shorts or tracksuit bottoms (depending on the weather), trainers, school jumper or fleece. Children will need to bring appropriate clothing for forest school to change into as necessary (for this term a waterproof coat and wellington boots)


Homework will be set weekly on a Friday and is expected to be handed into school the following Friday.  Information of what homework is set will be available on Google Classroom. This gives the children a week to ensure it is completed.  I will be available at lunchtimes should anyone need any further help with what has been set.  I will only set homework as a recap of learning so the children will have had lessons in school that relate to the home work set.  As well as the weekly work set (in the CGP books provided), children are also expected to participate in daily reading, spelling and maths practice as outlined below. 

Maths - times table rock stars can be used to help with number fluency as well as a number of online maths games that you can find here 

Reading - The children have each been set up with access to an account through which provides short quizes to assess their comprehension skills. The children are also expected to engage with daily reading at home, books from school can be taken home for reading pleasure. 

Spelling - Weekly spellings will link to online games that children can play to assist them with their learning, as well as a list of words to check the application of the spelling rule.
