Reading Records

Reading records and reading books are expected to be in school every day. During a week, a child is expected to complete at least 3 reads at home and have their reading record signed by an adult on each occasion. The reading record will be checked each Friday and if there are 3 reads signed in the reading record then the child will receive a reading raffle ticket. 


Home Learning

Home learning will go home every week on a Thursday. It needs to be completed and returned by the following Tuesday. Home learning will alternate half-termly:

1) one piece of English work accompanied by learning of times table / arithmetic OR

2) one piece of Maths work accompanied by ten spellings to learn.


In addition to this homework, children are expected to complete 3 pieces of home learning related to the topics covered in class over the course of the year. More details about what these home learning pieces can be will be sent out with each topic.



Within the English curriculum, the children will be taught reading, writing, speaking & listening and spelling & grammar (SPAG) skills. This will include: letters, sounds, spelling rules and grammar, sentence structure and punctuation, understanding of whole texts and meaning, handwriting (cursive script), writing for different audiences and purposes, and reading of different styles of texts. We encourage the children to be reading and writing as much as possible and any opportunities that you may find at home would also greatly benefit their learning.



Within the Mathematics curriculum, children will be taught a range of skills, including: mental and written strategies for solving problems, number patterns, addition and subtraction, multiplication and times tables, division, shape, measure (time, length, weight and capacity) and data handling. Children will have a variety of opportunities to apply their reasoning and fluency within mathematics through a range of practical and problem solving activities. They will also be learning how to apply their mental skills in arithmetic.



Our topics over the course of the year include:

  • Evolution and Adaptation
  • Electricity
  • The Tudors
  • The Americas
  • Anglo Saxons and Vikings


Should you have any questions regarding year 6, please speak with your child's class teacher.
