Year Six



Welcome to Year 6 Class!

It is strange to think that we are already in Spring Term. The children made a fantastic start to Year 6 and have returned from the break ready for the challenges that wait ahead.

Firstly, we start by saying a huge Woodlands welcome to Mrs Fox who has joined the Year 6 teaching team. She will be in class on a Monday and a Tuesday both in a teaching capacity and leading small group activities.

This term in Topic our focus will be Crime and Punishment through the ages. We’ll be learning about the Romans’, Saxons, Tudors and Victorians. In addition, we aim to link this to our literacy unit when we look at report writing later in the term.

In other areas we will be using Empiri box investigations and experiments to support our scientific enquiry. Our first unit, Animals including humans, involve us looking at the circulatory system and the digestive system and the impact that different things can have on the body. We will continue to work with Elms in PE as we develop our skills building up towards a range of competitions throughout this term.


All of the 6N teaching team are looking forward to another great term of learning with your children. Please keep checking the website for homework as all homework is set online. If you have any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school office to arrange an appointment.

Kind regards

Mr Alden, Mrs Fox and Mrs Adams
