What are we learning about in Term 1? 

Topic Our topic title is, 'Who Comes from the ‘Land Down Under?’

As you can guess this will be based on Australia where we study the incredible history of the Aborigines and the concepts of expansion and exploration. We will also learn about the climate and landscape of Australia as part of Geography and also have a go at creating aboriginal art.


Our learning this term in Maths will be a recap of place value and written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. (We’re easing you back in gently)


Our English this term will be based entirely on our topic of Australia and we will create some descriptive writing about this amazing country and work on improving our persuasive writing skills in the forms of leaflets and letters.

Religious Education

This term we will be learning about the Creation and Fall as part of the Big Story of Christianity and do out best to answer the following question: Creation and science - conflicting or complementary


Big Idea: Animals and plants adapt to their environment, leading to diverse offspring and gradual changes over generations. In Science this term we will be learning all about evolution, adaptation and inheritance. We will achieve this through experiments and conducting our own research on this interesting subject.


Computing this term will be a fun one learning about film making and safe internet use.

Here’s to an incredible year, Mr Churchill and the Year 6 Team




Termly Homework

Homework will consist of a multiple choice grid with many different types of activities to choose from which are all based around our topic. The children will be responsible for completing a task each week and recording it in the home learning book. Photographs or any documents can be stuck into books and any models etc can be brought into school to be presented to the rest of the class if they wish.

For Maths home learning, the children have access to Times Tables Rock Stars and Prodigy, of which the login information can be found in their reading record. The children also have access to Spelling Shed to help them practise their spellings which are sent home weekly.

Remember to keep up with the reading at home in order to get through as many books as possible on the Accelerated Reader scheme and accrue the number of points needed for the term. 

Home learning may also be supplemented from time to time with other activities to reinforce learning we do in class. 

All homework will be awarded housepoints as well as housepoints given for reading quizzes. These will be added to each child's termly acrual in class to work towards a prize.

Any help and support given with home learning is greatly received. Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Brown
