Welcome to Year 6

We will be working really hard this year to make sure you have a happy, challenging and fulfilling final year. 


Important Information


Year 6 Spring Newsletter

Our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Please make sure that children have a suitable indoor PE kit (navy blue/black shorts, a white t-shirt and black pumps) and outdoor PE kit in school. 


Please see the Homework Grid for the activities that the children can complete at home each half term. It is really important that the children read every day for at least 10 minutes and practise their Times Tables and weekly Spellings as often as possible.






Year 6 visit the library on a Friday to swap their reading books. It is important that library books are brought into school every day. The children spend time each week with their 'Reading Buddies'. 

Children are expected to read at home as often as possible to encourage their love of reading and to improve fluency. Why not use these suggestions to ask your child some questions about what they are reading?

During this term we will be reading the following books which we will complete a range of different activities about including VIPERS comprehensions.  



Throughout Year 6 we will be practising writing a range of different genres. We link our writing to our English texts but also to our Science and Geography work. It can be hard to remember all the necessary features needed for different genres so here is a writing checklist to help!



Year 6 are tested on their weekly spellings each Friday. Spelling lists are based on Year 6 curriculum spellings and the rules we are learning in class. It is really important that children learn their spellings so that they can apply them in their writing. 

Below, are some websites where the children can practise their spelling, punctuation and grammar.

BBC Bitesize


Grammar Quizzes 


Times Tables

The children have a Times Table test every Wednesday and a Times Table Champion is chosen and celebrated as part of our Whole School Celebration Assembly on a Friday afternoon. It is really important that children in Year 6 know all their Times Table facts up to 12 x 12 and also the division facts e.g. 144 ÷ 12 = 12. Please keep practising these regularly at home. 



Throughout Year 6 we cover a range of areas in Maths. These include the following:

  • Place Value
  • Four Operations
  • Fractions, Decimals, Percentages
