Our Learning


In RSE, we have been looking at how each and every individual child is unique, and they all have unique talents. The children chose to express their talents through the medium of drama. 

Year Six RSE- Calming of the storm

In the calming of the storm topic, Year Six reflected on what faith is and what storms they have had to face in their life. They created posters to show their understanding. In the next lesson, the children reflected on themselves as individuals. They explored their hobbies, values, gifts and talents. Then they drew a picture of themselves to show they are all individual and all loved and valued by God.


In class, Year 6 have been learning about what Remembrance means and the importance of Armistice Day. They were then tasked with creating a poem or prayer based on Remembrance.


We have been planning, editing and writing an independent piece of writing. The children have been writing an instructions text that is linked to their topic of ancient Egypt.

Math - Four Operations

We have been using formal written methods for all four operations and have been applying these to help us solve problems.

History - Ancient Egypt

This half term, we have been learning about ancient Egypt. We have looked at a variety of key questions to enable us to think like historians.

Science - Light and Perception

This half term, we have been looking at light and perception - focusing on how the eye works, how light travels, how shadows are formed. We have also completed investigations where we have posed a scientific question, made a hypothesis, written a method, included our variables (dependent, independent and controlled), take results, written a conclusion and evaluated our investigation. 

Black History Month

For Black History Month, we have been focusing on Muhammad Ali as our significant figure.

Key Information:

Homework: Homework will be set weekly - on a Friday - and due to be handed in the following Thursday. Homework will consist of spellings, times tables practice and either SPAG, Reading or Mathematics. 

PE: PE is currently on a Thursday. All children must have the correct school PE kit, which consists of white t-shirt and black shorts. Tracksuits may be worn as the weather turns colder and please could you ensure that all children have the appropriate footwear so that they can participate fully. 

Reading: Children have the opportunity to take a reading book home to read and also have access to reading for pleasure books from the classroom and the library. In Year 6, your children are also very fortunate to have access to Reading Plus, which is a superb online resource that will develop both their reading skills and their vocabulary. 

We challenge your children to read their school book at home daily and bring their reading record to school too.
