From little acorns, mighty oaks grow

Year 6

                                                                Welcome to Year 6           

Our classes are Hippos (Miss Nolan-Neylan and Mrs Rose) and Rhinos (Mrs Kyte and Mrs Rose). We are lucky to have Mrs C Watts, our maths expert for boosting and extending all Year 6.  

Some reminders:

PE kit must be worn to school on a Tuesday and Thursday. We will be going outside in most weathers, so please ensure your child has a tracksuit. Please make sure your child has the correct kit and is not wearing jewellery.

Your children should be accessing spellings through the Spelling Shed and times-tables using TTRockstars every night as well as reading.

Term 2

This term we are looking at evolution, adaptation and inheritance in both English and science. These are the texts we will be using for our English lessons. We will be writing non-chronological reports and letters.


 Our PE lessons will be fitness and hockey (with the PE coach). The history focus is the Industrial Revolution which fits nicely in a timeline alongside both of  our English texts. Please see the termly overview you have been sent for more detailed information. Knowledge organisers for history and science are below should you or your child want to explore these in greater depth.
