Year 6

Welcome to our Year 6 class page!


We hope you’ve had a lovely Easter break! The year is certainly flying by and we can’t believe that our Year 6’s are about to begin their final term at Micklehurst. This half term promises to be packed with lots of fun and exciting learning opportunities. SATs Week is of course fast approaching and we’ll be doing lots of activities in the coming weeks to revise key concepts that the children have learnt throughout KS2. SATs week this year will take place from Monday 13th - Thursday 16th May and we’ll be sending out more information as the term progresses. Mrs White will continue to teach Year 6 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday afternoons and Miss Jarman will teach on Wednesday mornings, Thursdays and Fridays. Mrs Radley will be supporting the learning in Year 6 throughout the week.


In geography this term, the children will be working hard to develop their Mapping Skills. The unit will start with a look at time zones; the children will learn why our world is broken up in to different time zones and will discover that some countries span more than one time zone. There will be some very strong links to maths this term too as the children focus on using compasses and interpreting grid references, both four figure and six figures. We will also turn our attention to deciphering ordnance survey maps with a particular emphasis on looking at plans of the local area to put our learning into context.


We’ll also be turning our attention to 3D modelling in our Computing sessions and designing and building our very own playgrounds in Design & Technology. The children will have the opportunity to work with our resident author, David Mason, too – David will use a range of strategies, including drama, to inspire the children to produce a narrative piece of independent writing.


Alongside these interesting and engaging units of work, we’ll also be continuing to challenge our musical abilities during our weekly music sessions on Mondays and perfecting our Spanish on Tuesdays.

Some key information:

Music – Monday mornings

Spanish – Tuesday mornings

P.E. – Tuesday afternoons


Homework will be given on a Wednesday and will consist of maths and reading activities. We expect that this homework will be completed by the following Monday. We are trying to prepare Year 6 for high school so if children do not complete homework, they will need to do it on a Monday in their own time (play time).


Year 6 are expected to read at least three times a week for 20 minutes or more and need their reading diaries signed by a grown up at home.  Their diaries will be checked each morning to see if they have read and if they haven’t read 3 times in the week or they don’t have their reading diary, they will stay in and read.


Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Jarman, Mrs White and Mrs Radley
