Year 6

Year 6 is an important year for the children as they prepare for the transition to secondary school. They will continue to develop their Mathematical and English skills, for which they will be tested in May through national assessments. However, emphasis will be on providing children with a balanced curriculum that allows for creative thinking and development of their independent skills and the fostering of a growth mindset. Children will have the opportunity to take on the responsibilities of a Prefect position for a term during the year and, as the oldest in the school, we expect Year 6 children to act as role models to the younger children. By setting good examples in their attitudes and behaviour to their work and each other, they will be valued members of the school community. 

We kick start the year by reading ‘War Horse’ by Michael Morpurgo, which is our hook in to our first topic of ‘The Great War’ and our stimulus for writing.  Later in the year, the children will explore the topic ‘Mother Earth’ before delving back in time to ‘The Golden Age’. This is just a glimpse of what is to come.

Alongside some of these exciting topics, the children should also look forward to a residential trip to Robinwood and performing at the Atkinson in our end of year performance.

Home Tasks


In Year 6, we believe that homework has an important role to play in preparing our children for secondary school, whilst consolidating recent learning in class. Continued assessment of their skills also plays a vital role in the work that we do in the classroom, so your continued support with homework is both important and much appreciated.

Our weekly homework offer in Year 6 includes:

1.   A maths task each week to consolidate learning
2.   A reading comprehension to support with consolidating key reading skills. 
3.   Reading- please continue to aim to read with your child at least 3 times a week.
4. Maths - We would also like your child to continue to practise their times tables at home – Times Tables Rockstars ( is a useful resource to use to help support with pupils practising this at home. Their login details are in the font of their reading diaries and this should be accessible for all children.
5. Spellings- To support with our reading and writing work in school, we will send home each week a spelling rule and linked words so you are aware of what is being covered as part of our work in school. This rule will be taught and practised throughout the following week in school and we wanted to send this home so, where possible, children can practise this at home. Children will have the chance to learn, practise and apply this rule in class through a range of activities and quizzes as part of our RWI spelling programme.

We teach the children to take pride and responsibility for their own work and we strive to develop their independence, therefore we expect each homework task to be completed with care and to the best of their ability.

Homework should take no longer than approximately 40 minutes per week to complete.

Feedback for homework will primarily be given either verbally or through self/peer marking during whole-class feedback where appropriate. Teaching staff will ensure any misconceptions are addressed during feedback given to support progress and understanding.

Thank you so much for your continued support!

The link below is to ‘My Mini Maths Missions’ which provides a series of 5-day learning missions supporting the understanding and application of maths across Key Stage 2.

‘Mathsbot’ is a great website for the children to practise their arithmetic skills. It will mark the tests for them so they can see any errors they have made. They can also use this to practice working against the clock.
