Year 6

Welcome to Year 6 Class!


It is strange to think that we are already in Spring Term. The children made a fantastic start to Year 6 and have returned from the break ready for the challenges that wait ahead.


This term we start our new topic unit based on World War 1. We look at what life was like in Britain around the 1900’s and touch briefly on the impact of the Industrial Revolution. Following this we cover the story behind how World War 1 started, the role of women, trench life and some of the key battles that took place. As this is such a large topic area, we study this for the whole of this term.

Following on with the theme of war in Literacy we look at Rose Blanche, a fictional character growing up during World War 2, and Anne Frank, a German-Jewish teenager who was forced to go into hiding during the Holocaust. Particularly we look at writing a letter of complaint and how to write a biography/auto-biography.

During our Friday maths sessions, we will continue to look at division before moving on to percent of amounts and how to use the four operations within fraction questions.


In other areas we will be carrying on making our adventure games, which we started before the end of term, and even have a go at making our own Podcasts in computing. In science, we take a look at the circulatory system and the importance of exercise.


All of the 6N teaching team are looking forward to another great term of learning with your children.

Please keep checking the website for homework, and follow us on Twitter if you aren't yet doing so - this will give you an excellent insight to all of the learning that 6 Neptune, and the rest of the school, get up to.


If you have any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail or, alternatively, you could contact the school office to arrange an appointment.


Kind regards

Mr Alden
