Welcome Sharks, Whales, Turtles and Dolphins


Welcome back to you all. We hope that you have had an enjoyable break and are ready for an enjoyable spring term. 


We have an exciting spring term planned which is based around our history topic ‘The Mayan Civilisation’. This unit looks at what life was like for the Mayan people as well as what Britain may have learnt from them.  


We will continue to study a variety of text in English including ‘Clockwork’ by Phillip Pullman and ‘Cosmic’ by Frank Cottrell.  In addition to this, we will read a range of poetry; in mathematics we will consolidate our knowledge and understanding and apply our skills to solve investigations; in science we will study ‘Evolution and Inheritance’.  


With SATs around the corner you will participate in revision lessons focusing on Mathematics, Reading and Grammar. We will continue to use our mindfulness techniques learnt during the autumn term to approach challenges and ensure a growth mind-set, striving to remain positive.


Please continue to remember to bring your PE kits on a Monday and Tuesday. Please make sure that jewellery is not worn on these days, including earrings.


Our online programmes such as, Bug Club, Mathletics and Times Table Rock Stars will still be available. All information about these are on page 3 within your pupil planner.


Homework for this year will be as follows:

Daily reading

Weekly spellings

Weekly Mathletics activities

Weekly maths worksheet based on our classroom learning


Don’t forget to read and discuss the vocabulary and knowledge mats with your family to deepen your understanding of what you are learning this term!


We are very much looking forward to the next term together! Thanks for your support, the Year 6 staff team.
