In Term 3, the children will be bringing home some SATs homework packs. The expectation is that children will be set maths and SPAG questions each night that need to be completed and brought into school for marking the following day. Reading homework will be set weekly and will be checked on a Friday. If there are any queries about homework, please feel free to contact us.

Term 4 - Extreme Environments
This term, our wider curriculum continues on with our geographical approach from Term 3. We will be exploring what makes an environment extreme and looking in detail at specific geographical features such as volcanoes and mountains. We will also be looking at a range of different natural disasters and exploring the impact that things such as flooding, hurricanes and tornadoes have on the world and its inhabitants.
In English, we will be exploring 'Floodland' written by Marcus Sedgwick. You can find out more about our chosen author by reading our author profile HERE. We will explore different elements of the text and draw from it a wide range of texts such as narratives, information texts and newspaper reports.
In our reading sessions this term we will be taking the opportunity to conduct an in-depth read into our class book mentioned above. As well as exploring our narrative, we will explore a range of non-fiction texts that will build on to our geographical knowledge of natural disasters and their impact on the environment.
Take a look at our book map for more linked reading HERE.
In term 4, we will be continuing on with our learning of ratio and proportion from term 3. We will then move on to look at measurements, including how to read different scales and how to interpret measurement. Finally, we will explore algebra and how the relationships between numbers and letters can create calculations.
For more information visit our Maths Curriculum page to remind yourselves of our calculation policy.
In our wider curriculum this term we will be looking at geography, PSHE, geography, RE and computing. Click the above logos to view our pupil organisers for each subject.

How can you help at home?
Children are expected to read at home at least five times each week for fifteen minutes. At least one of these times needs to be with an adult but please read more often with your child if you are able. Children are expected to write the date of the read, the book they are reading and the pages they have read in that day. Please ensure that you check and sign reading records each week. Reading records will be checked every Friday.
Reading comprehension question stems can be found here.
A list of recommended reads for Y6 can be found here.
This year, Year 6 will be trialling a new way of spelling. The premise of this trial is that spelling should be 'taught not caught'. We will be doing daily and weekly spelling sessions but will not be sending spelling lists home for weekly spelling tests. We recognise that this is different from previous years and will be different from other year groups this year but please bear with us - we hope this new way of working will see great improvement in spelling!
By Year 6, the children should be confident with all times table facts so constant practice at home will help to embed this. Children are encouraged to practise maths facts using their Maths Shed log in, as often as possible.
The children will be continuing with Maths Planets this year and will carry on from their end point in Year 5. There are sample papers on the maths page of the website to give you an idea of what each stage will look like. Please encourage your child to practise their maths facts at least three times per week. If your child is stuck on a level for more than four weeks, then we will intervene at school.
If you need to contact us, we are available outside at the end of each day or via email:
