In maths we are looking at place value and number to start with. Place value is essential knowledge for the children as it is used in all aspects of maths. We shall also be looking at rounding, using negative numbers in a given context, as well as addition and subtraction.

In English in year 6 we have started looking at one of Shakespeare’s plays Romeo and Juliet. We shall also be preforming our own rendition of this at The Concert Theatre Manchester in November. Look out for our Manchester theme within it! Other texts we shall be looking at include:

  • Wonder by R. J Palacio
  • I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

In R.E we shall be continuing to work alongside The Shrewsbury Diocese’s The Way, The Truth and The Life. Our first topic shall be The Kingdom of God

In our Humanities lessons we have been looking at World War 2. We have started to look at how the war started and who was involved in the war. Other areas we shall be covering include:

  • Adolf Hitler- who was he?
  • Evacuation
  • The Blitz
  • Wythenshawe and Baguley in the war.

In science we have started learning about the circulatory system including:

  • The parts and their functions.
  • How nutrients and water is transported within our bodies.
  • The importance of diet, exercise and our lifestyles.



The children in Year 6 will be given one piece of maths and one piece of English homework per week. This homework is given alongside their spellings and times tables, which will be tested weekly. All children have also got a Mathletics login and this is a great way for the children to practice their maths skills.

Thank you for your continued support,

Mr Power, Miss Barnes and Mrs Towey.
