Welcome to Year 6   
Our Learning Term 5 and 6
Our main topic for terms 5 and 6 is 'Ancient Greece'. Our enquiry question is 'How have the Ancient Greeks impacted our lives today?' To help to answer this question, we will be focusing on the following questions:
Who were the Ancient Greeks?
Where do they come within history?
How did Britain become influenced by the Greeks?
How did Greeks help develop our understanding of the world?
How has that influence had an impact on life today?


In Science, in terms 5 and 6 we will be learning about 'Evolution and Inheritance.' This will include;
-  recognising that living things produce offspring of the same kind, but normally offspring vary and are not identical to their parents.
- identifying how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution.
- recognising that living things have changed over time and that fossils provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago.

Please ensure your child comes to school dressed in a suitable PE kit on these days.  The children will be outside in all weathers. Long hair must be tied up and earrings to be taped or removed, along with removing any jewellery or watches. If earrings are removed, please ensure that your child has a small pot or safe place to keep them in.
On Friday afternoons, I am out of the classroom for Planning, Preparation and Administration time. During this time the learning will be RE and Spanish.


The spring term is the time in year 6 when we start to prepare for the May SATs. SATs will take place between Monday 13th May 2024 – Thursday 16th May 2024 so please avoid booking any time off school during this week and in the case of illness, children are still able to sit SATs up to one week after the official SATs week. We are beginning to look at techniques and strategy in answering some of the questions – but this is being done so with a positive and upbeat attitude so we are boosting confidence and the children are responding really well to this. We are doing a little and often approach so the heart of teaching and learning remains much the same.
