Term 1

Welcome to your first term in Year 6! We hope you have had an amazing Summer Holiday, we can’t wait to hear all about it! We are so excited for all the adventures we are going to have! The Year 6 Team are very excited about the engaging, creative learning experiences that we have developed to inspire the children in the year ahead. Learning together, we will develop a healthy Growth Mindset, as we continue on the path to being Happy, Positive, Successful, Life-Long Learners.


We begin our exploration into WW1 with the book War Game. This story gives us a small insight into the life of an ordinary boy and his friends and their journey through the war and life in the trenches. The books shows how young individuals had to make life changing decisions about entering the war. We will use several writing techniques to create some amazing pieces of descriptive writing, emotive writing and non-chronological reports. 

Please encourage your children to read independently and to discuss what they have read. This will continue to develop their use of language and their ability to infer information from a piece of writing and to gain an understanding of a range of different genres.


Maths in year 6 consolidates and develops the skills which your child has been learning throughout primary school. This term our focus is Place Value. We will focus on teaching children how to apply these skills to problems and investigations, developing their understanding of the use of maths in everyday life. You can help by ensuring that your child knows their tables inside out and back to front – literally! 

 Geography & History

This term we start looking into World War 1. We will be learning about the cause and effect of the war on Hextable compared to other parts of the UK. Using a local area study, we will explore the impact of WW1 on Hextable. It will be interesting to explore the impact of the suffragette movement on the women of Hextable and how they can inspire us today. Using maps and atlas', we will be locating the world's countries, concentrating om their environmental regions and major cities. 


Our Science focus for this term is Electricity. The children will learn through practical investigation and research to understand how electricity travels and how different components effect its current. We will research into the discovery of electricity and the scientists who have impacted our world today.
