Welcome to Year 6

In Year 6, we cover many exciting topics to enhance children’s knowledge and understanding in-line with The National Curriculum 2014.  British Values also underpin our curriculum. 

Our key topic areas this year are: 

Autumn Term 1 - Why was the Islamic Civilization (around 900AD) known as the Golden Age? 

Autumn Term 2 - Why has Brazil got one of the world’s fastest growing economies? 

Spring Term 1 - Were the Vikings always victorious and vicious? 

Spring Term 2 - Where will Route 66 take me? 

Summer Term 1 - Will Planet Earth survive mankind? 

Summer Term 2 - Why should we remember the Maya? 


We will have our PE lessons on a Friday.  It is essential that children remember to bring their PE kit in on a weekly basis. 


Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be returned to school by the following Tuesday.  Homework will include: English, Maths, Spelling, reading and Times Tables Rock Stars.
