Year 6 2018 - 2019

Mr Khan

Dear Parents,


First of all I would like to wish you all a happy New Year and hope you have all had a good Christmas. The term ahead is going to be extremely busy and the children have a lot of hard work ahead of them, especially in preparation and revision for the forthcoming SATs exams in May.                                                                               

As well as the following specific curriculum areas to be covered this term we will be revising the whole of the KS2 English and Mathematics curriculum in class.




Fiction areas to be covered this term are different genres of narratives. The non-fictional areas to be covered are explanation and discussion texts as well as formal examples of writing such as notices, invitations, report writing and public information documents.



The children will be developing their number and reasoning skills further and consolidating a range of formal and informal methods for all number operations and arithmetic calculations. They will also be working on shape and space in a unit of work that particularly focuses on transformations as well as an awareness and understanding of angles and coordinates.



This term, the children will be learning about evolution, light as well as the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on our bodies. These subject areas will be the basis for all experimental and investigative work.


Creative Curriculum

The Creative Curriculum theme of Anglo-Saxons will continue until February Half Term. All Geography, History, Art and Design Technology will be taught through this topic. The Vikings will be the focus after ½ term.



Games and PE will continue to be on a Friday afternoon. Please make sure PE kits are available in school on a Friday but also throughout the week in the event of an unplanned or ‘taster’ sporting lesson.



Regular homework will continue being set throughout the week with English on a Monday, Science/topic on a Wednesday and Maths every Friday.  Homework should take no longer than an hour. If you feel your child is struggling or experiencing difficulties with a particular homework please comment in the homework diary and upon return I will be able to address any difficulties.


Despite the volume of work to be covered this term I am sure learning will be enjoyable and that the fun and laughter in year 6 will continue!


Thank you for your continuing support. As usual, if there are any issues you wish to discuss with me, I am available both before and after school most days. I look forward to discussing your child’s progress at the next parents evenings on the 6th and 7th February.
