Year 6

Our topic this term is

‘The Battle of Britain’

This autumn term our topic has a history focus.  Children will learn about the Battle of Britain and how World War II affected children living at this time.  Our class novel this term is Emma Carroll’s Letters from the Lighthouse. 


In science, we will learn all about the circulatory system and healthy living. We’re hoping to visit Skillzone to learn all about personal safety.

General information

Pupils will need to wear PE kits to school, on Mondays and Wednesdays (joggers and a warm sweatshirt would be great). Our Friday trip to forest school has been so popular, we’ve reserved the slot for Year 6 again. Pupils need to wear school uniform that covers their legs – tights or trousers. A change of footwear is essential. Ideally wellies will be left in lockers.


Your support with homework tasks has made a significant difference. Over the next school year, please continue to chat through their homework with them, encourage them to engage with it to their utmost and help them get organised so that it is handed in on time. Pupils would benefit from continued, regular tables work and daily reading – including out loud to an adult. Homework will be set, as follows:
