Year 6 2021 - 2022

Mrs Thorpe



We are now in our Spring Term and our learning programme is packed full. As well as trips to Chester Zoo and the Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool, we have a number of on-site curriculum enrichments planned including Forest School Days, Cookery Classes and Art Days.



In RE, we are learning about The Mass, and developing our understanding of Jesus as the Lamb of God and how this links to the concept of sacrifice. We will also be journeying through Lent together learning more about Jesus and how Jesus is the revelation of God's love.

Our topic this term is South America. We are linking a number of our curriculum subjects together for this topic including Science, Geography, Art, Spanish and Music. We are learning about the physical and human geography of this diverse and awesome continent.

In Maths, we are moving into shape and space, covering topics on position, direction, angles, 2D/3D shapes and circles. In Number work, we will be learning about fractions, percentates and decimals, as well as ratio and data handling.

In English, we are studying a range of fiction and non-fiction texts. Some of our story books of study include: The Kapok Tree, The Selfish Giant, The Highwayman and The Good Thjieves. We will also be using digital media as inspiration for our writing, inclkuding a moving film called "The Eye of the Storm." Some of our non-fiction writing will be linked to our topic on South America and will include writing informative and persuassive texts. 



  • Remember to log into Google Classroom to access remote learning, homework tasks and additional learning resources
  • Please also remember to bring water bottles into school every day.
  • Year 6 PE days are Wednesday and Friday - wear your school PE Kit on these days - don't forget your jumper and keep warm with dark joggers on those chilly days.

Further details of our Year 6 Curriculum can be found below in our long term planning document. All weekly updates and parental information can be found on our Google Classroom page.



I look forward to having a more face-to-face relationship with you all this term. I will be on the playground most mornings and afternoons and you are always welcome to contact me at school via telephone or via my email ( I will always endeavour to get back to you within the same day. 

Many thanks for your continued support,

Mrs H.Thorpe

Deputy Headteacher
