In English, we will continue with the hard work we have been doing in preparation for the KS2 writing assessment. We will begin by looking at description of settings and characters through writing an introduction to a narrative before looking at a diary entry.

 How you can help your child? Encourage your child to read their reading book and ask them questions about the text which they are reading. Also, please encourage your child to log on to Oxford Reading Buddy to access a wide range of reading books.


In Maths, we will be revising key concepts in preparation for our end of KS2 assessments (SATs). We will be looking at a range of topics and exploring past SAT questions to help prepare us for the real thing.

 How you can help your child?   Practice times tables and division facts regularly. Encourage your child to log on to Sumdog and TT Rock Stars to practice their multiplication facts and battle against their friends to become a Rock Star champion.



This term our theme is ‘Mountains’.

We will look at the mountain ranges around the world including how mountains are formed and the key features of such ranges.  We will also look at the tourism impact on the mountains themselves.


 How you can help your child? 
Please keep asking your children what they have been learning in their theme lessons as discussion at home is very important.


In Science, our topic is Light and how we see things. We will explore what light is, how it travels and just how we are able to see things. We will also explore what shadows are and what causes them.


How you can help your child? 
Please keep asking your children what they have been learning in their science lessons as discussion at home is very important.

Religious Education

This half-term in RE, we will be exploring Ascension and Pentecost. We will look at the story of Ascension and Pentecost and what this meant for Christianity. 

In Y6, we will be using both 3/4 and 5/6 Statutory Spelling Lists to support our writing:

Class Text this Term: 

River Boy

Grandpa is dying. He can barely move his hands any more but, stubborn as ever, refuses to stay in hospital. He's determined to finish his last painting, 'River Boy', before he goes.

At first Jess can't understand his refusal to let go, but then she too becomes involved in the mysterious painting. And when she meets the river boy himself, she finds she is suddenly caught up in a challenge of her own that she must complete - before it's too late . . .
