Year 6 - Summer Term 2018


English – Chamber of Secrets


We have made a fantastic start in English and have already looked at two fabulous books.

After half term we will be reading Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling.


We will focus on all aspects of fractions, decimals and percentages as well as recapping on all aspect s of place value, the number system and written methods of calculation. We also expect the children to continue practicing their times tables and they will have homework each week based on what we have been studying within their daily lessons.


Crime and Punishment



Through our topic, Crime and Punishment, we will continue about how our justice system was created along with how people were punished and which crimes were significant in history. We will look at this across the ages, beginning with Romans and learning about Anglo-Saxons, Tudors, Victorians – to name but a few.

In our science topics will continue to looking at Adaptation and Evolution and then study All living things and How we see things. To link to these topics with Art and D&T we will make curse tablets, create our own fossils, make bread and create our own compost bins.

Year 6 performance 

Finally we will also be rehearsing for our end of year performance- The Pirates of the Curry Bean.

We will be performing Pirates of the Curry Been on Tuesday 17th July. We will put on an afternoon and an evening performance.


6W and 6PA: Children will need their PE kits Friday each week.

Please make sure they have the appropriate kit - black shorts, white top, trainers and tracksuit bottoms or leggings if weather requires. As we hope we might eventually get some sunshine – they may need hats and sunscreen. Water bottles will also be needed.
