W E L C O M E T O T H E Y E A R 6 C L A S S P A G E
Welcome to Year 6!
We have had such a fantastic first half-term, learning all about the First World War and the global challenges this brought. Please check out our class dojo page to see some of our wonderful pieces of work!
Year 6 is the last of your primary school journey, it's full of: fun, laughter and hard work - but we will get through this together!
If your child is a member of our class, please familiarise yourself with this page as we will post updates and showcase all the fantastic work the children have been creating.
Please check out Class Dojos for weekly updates of all the exciting learning we get up to!
For any queries or questions, please don't hesitate to speak to me at the end of the school day.

This term we are... H I S T O R I A N S.
We are exploring the concept of conflict and resolution, with a focus on World War I and World War II.
We kick start the topic by looking at the events that took place, which caused the beginning of WWI. We will explore the importance of an alliance and how the most powerful countries in Europe were split into two alliances.
After gaining an understanding of Franz Ferdinand, Trench Warfare and the Western Front to name a few significant people/events in the 'war to end all wars', we will then begin to research and learn about the start of WW1, whilst comparing and contrasting it with events that took place in the previous war. We will look at the life of Adolf Hitler and the effect of his terrible decisions/ideas. Whilst exploring the impact the second World War had on the world and more specifically, Britain, we will look at evacuation and how the end of the war saw the introduction of the Welfare State.
This will be a challenging but very interesting topic for us to learn about together, Year 6! Let's get started.
Spellings for the week will go out with the children on Monday and we will do a spelling test on Friday. Please encourage your child to practice their spellings at home as there will be DOJO points available to children that have worked hard!
Our PE days are: Monday morning and Wednesday afternoon. Please come to school in your PE kit on a Monday morning and bring your school uniform with you. You will need to bring your outdoor and indoor kit for a Wednesday afternoon please.
Children will be given homework on a Friday and it will be due back in on the following Monday - DOJO points will be awarded to children that give their homework in on time!
It is so incredibly important to read at home! When you have read at home and get your record signed by an adult you can collect stickers on our class chart! The more stickers you get, the more chance of some amazing prizes!
We have a beautiful uniform at St Mary's and we pride ourselves on our fantastic appearance. Please make sure you attend school in the correct uniform, always looking lovely and neat!
