Year 6 Information

Autumn Term

Our topic in Year 6 this term is World War Two. In our history lessons we will learn about the outbreak of war, the life of an evacuee and what it was like to live during the Blitz. Our RE lessons will allow us time to reflect and discuss the question ‘Is war ever just?’ During Art we will study work created by Paul Nash and then plan and create our own pieces based on his style. In Science we will be learning about light, focusing on how it travels and reflects off objects. We will use what we learn to help us build periscopes. There will where there will be lots of opportunities for us to plan and carryout interesting investigations. In Music we will have lots of fun listening to swing and big band music.

We are keen for parents to support the children’s learning at home as much as possible. To help with this we produce Topic Overviews for each term outlining our main topics.

Please download our Information Booklet to find out more about the routines and expectations in Year 6. You may also wish to take a look at the Y6 Curriculum Map, which shows you the topics we will be covering in different subjects over the course of the year. Please talk to us if you would like more information.

Jaguar Class have been focusing on speed when recalling times table facts up to 12. The children have started to challenge each other using Times Table Rock Stars and are enjoying sharing their achievements.


Year 6


In Science the children worked in groups to create a human model to show how light enables us to see. They used wool to symbolise a ray of light, members of their group acted as a light source and an object. They held the wool to demonstrate how the light travels from the source to the object and then their eyes. Finally they presented their work to the class.


Year 6


During our Science lesson, we demonstrated the principle of how we see objects.


Year 6


We focused on Paul Nash and his WWII art, to select colours represented in his art, and practise some sketching and painting techniques.


Year 6


We have great ideas about Maths and are keen to show our methods! Partitioning, column method and grids have all helped prove what we know.
