Crimson, scarlet, burgundy, cherry… blood flows through our bodies in all its vibrant shades of red. Let’s explore our circulation system in our topic ‘Blood Heart’. Now surgeons, don’t be squeamish as we dissect an animal heart and examine the veins, arteries and chambers up close.
This will link with our class text ‘Pig Heart Boy’. We will really get to consider our characters by writing diaries, letters, monologues and then become reporters discussing some animal rights issues. Click on the picture to see Part 1 come alive:
Our maths will flourish as we begin recognising and comparing numbers up to 7-digits long and using these to solve complicated sums. Let’s not forget that tricky long division, we may find it hard at first but we will persevere!
We are very excited to be with you and can’t wait to get stuck in! We know you are going to be absolute superstars and all achieve great things! It’s going to be tough, but equally just as fun! Bring on year 6!

In Year 6 children take part in SATs. Please click on the links to find out more to help support your child.
PE is on a Friday afternoon for Year Six. Please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school, all jewellery is removed and hair tied back.
PE kit should consist of: a white t-shirt or polo, navy or black shorts, black pumps and a navy/black tracksuit.
Homework in Year Six: This year, Year Six have their very-own personal planners, which is very exciting, as it allows them to start taking responsibility for themselves. Here they will be able to record their timetable for the year, their homework daily and the books they have read, as well as having a whole bank of resources at their fingertips. This means that this year, homework will be given out differently to previous years. Your child will be expected to complete: maths, spelling, reading and grammar/punctuation weekly. They will record this homework in their diary along with the date it needs to be completed by. For their maths homework they will be given a CGP book, which has a range of SATs style questions that will need to be completed. Alongside this, they will be given an exercise book to complete all other homework tasks. It is important that children take ownership of their own homework and it is their responsibility to not lose or damage their homework books, as it will incur a charge.
Also, please do visit Active Learn, as there will be activities on here, which will form part of your homework. If you have forgotten your password or need help logging on, please come and ask.
