Welcome to the Home 6 page!



The children have settled in really well and are beginning to show that they are ready for the challenges that Year 6 will bring. Year 6 is not just about SATs! Over the coming year, the children will have the opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding in all subject areas by accessing a fun, engaging, creative and challenging curriculum that will further enrich their learning.  

Over the year the children will have the opportunity to study: 

  • The Anglo-Saxons: was the Anglo-Saxon period really a Dark Age? 

  • The Vikings: would the Vikings do anything for money?

  • The Impact of war: did WWI or WWII have the biggest impact on our locality? 

  • South America- The Amazon: what is life like in the Amazon?

  • Protecting the Environment: are we damaging our world? 

  • Out Future World: what will our world look like in the future? 

  • Science: Animals Including Humans, Classifying Organisms, Light, Electricity and Evolution and Inheritance

  • The works of the artist Andy Warhol

  • The works of the composer John Williams

  • The authors David Walliams (Autumn Term),  Tony Bradman (Spring Term) and David Almond (Summer Term)

Home 6 Information


  • We have PE on Wednesdayplease ensure the children come into school in a full P.E. kit on this day.
  • English and Maths homework is given out weekly via Seesaw. The children will be given homework on Friday to be returned on the following Wednesday. If the children have any problems with their homework and require further support, they can speak to us on Monday or Tuesday. English homework will include spellings which the children will be tested on each Thursday. 
  • Reading- It is essential that the children are reading at home on a regular basis. The children will be marked weekly on whether they are a red, yellow or green reader (0-2 times a week is red, 3-4 times a week is yellow and 5+ times a week is green). 
  • Times tables- Children should regularly practise their times tables up to 12 x 12. Having quick recall of both the multiplication and division facts will greatly help them in other areas of the Maths curriculum. The children have been given a Times table Rockstars login (in their homework book) which they can use to access the app or website at home. The children will be tested on their times tables each Friday.
  • Snack money is 50p per week. 
  • News updates will be posted on Seesaw, on the website or via twitter. 

Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to the year ahead!
