Our Learning

Year 6


Welcome to our class page!

Mr Higgins, Ms Mills and Miss Webster

We hope you have had a fantastic summer break and are now ready for the brand new year in Year 6.  We are looking forward to supporting children and are excited about our year six topics.  If you would like to see which subjects we learn on a daily basis, see the class timetable below.

In year 6, we have high expectations! We expect the children to come to school on time (8.35am) so they don't miss out on their morning arithmetic starter, which is vital to help improve Maths.  In addition, we expect children to have a positive attitude to learning and try their best in all subjects.

The topic this term is Meet the Mayans. We will be basing this topic on a study of the Mayan civilisation.

Further information about topic is included in the Medium Term Plans section.


In addition to this, each day year 6 children will be expected to:

Learn Spellings

•Practise times tables and applying this learning

•Read every day and bring your book bag to school.


This allows children to develop their vocabulary, increase their fluency and understanding.   Children will bring home a home reading book of their choice based on their reading level and are also encouraged to read additionally for pleasure. It is important to read for pleasure, whether that is online, a comic, magazine or a book children enjoy reading.

Children should spend at least 10 minutes a day learning their timetables and should know their tables up to 12 times.  If children know all their times tables, it is important to go over them as well as apply these to larger and smaller numbers. Timetables provide a foundation for a range of learning in Maths including written multiplication and division, fractions, percentages and time.  Try these websites for some interactive learning :

Spellings will be given on Fridays and tested weekly.  Children will be taught spelling strategies which they can also use to practise spellings at home. Spellzone is also available for children to practise spellings in a fun and interactive way. In year 6, we recap tricky spellings from year 3 onwards so children can become better spellers!  Click on the links below to practice spellings:
