Welcome to Year 6’s summer term overview!

We hope that you have had a wonderful Easter and are ready for our final term together.


Pentecost: Witness

The children will explore what it is to be a witness and the courage sometimes needed to do so. They shall discuss issues such as how and when it might become difficult to speak up and why it is a courageous thing to do.

Reconciliation: Healing

The children will be learning about show understanding of religious sources, beliefs, ideas, feelings and experiences concerning the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick and make links between them.   

World Religions

We shall be learning about the beliefs and culture of those following Sikhism and will be visiting the Gurdwara.

Universal Church: Common Good

The children will be able to make links between various scriptures and beliefs.  The children will give reasons for certain actions by believers in working for justice and the common good. 



At the beginning of this term, we will be basing our writing around a film about a girl named Alma.  We will be writing a setting description and a narrative including dialogue.

Following this, we will start studying the life and work of William Shakespeare and we will begin preparing our production of King Lear!

Grammar will be taught and applied through our writing.

We also have regular reading comprehensions lessons as well as daily Guided Reading lessons. Through these sessions, we aim to build on the children’s vocabulary and focus on the types of inference and retrieval questions which will help them develop further ready for their transition to high schools.

Weekly spellings are provided on Mondays. These are based on the National Curriculum spelling lists for Year 5 and 6. We will also revise previous years’ spelling rules throughout Year Six.




During this first this half term, we will be completing our work on the properties of shapes. After this we will revisit properties of circles looking at the radius, diameter and circumference of a circle.

The children will complete their year of maths doing maths investigating and consolidating their knowledge.




Arithmetic tests will take place every Friday.

PE is on Thursday afternoons and children should come to school dressed in their PE kit every Thursday.

Children are expected to participate in our online portal, ReadTheory as well as reading each day.  All of their personal logins are inside each child’s Reading Record. As with reading books, little and often is the key to success!
