Year 6

Welcome to Year 6


In Year 6 our teacher is Mrs Smith and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Hennessey.



Welcome back to the Autumn term and Year 6.  During this term in English we will base a lot of our reading and writing around books written by Anthony Horowitz, Michael Morpurgo, Philip Pullman and R.J. Palaccio. 

Our History topic this term is The Victorians and the British Empire; we will be visiting Reading museum to experience a day in the life of a Victorian child.  Geography investigates the different climate zones around the world and RE looks at the different rituals and rites religions have for birth, life and death. 

In Science, we begin with classification and focus on Carl Linnaeus; followed by Evolution and Charles Darwin.  We will again have the benefit of a rugby coach for our Tag rugby lesson, ready for the tournament later this term; we will also be working on building up our endurance for Cross Country.  Andy Warhol and the Pop Art movement is our inspiration for Art this term, and we hope to take part in the Enterprise scheme again.


These are just some of the things we will be covering this term. 


  • Reading Museum: 6th November
  • Low Ropes: 27th November (Wellington College)
  • Enterprise - Christmas Fayre at Edgbarrow
