Together we care, together we learn and together we grow

Year 6

It's the final term - Summer is here!

I hope you have all enjoyed a relaxing break and are ready to return for your final term with us at Little Leigh Primary School! I can't believe just how quickly this year has flown by!

For this final, yet jam-packed term, we shall be learning all about Crime and Punishment through the ages, around the globe. This is a fascinating topic and will fascinate you with it's gruesome details!

This term we have so much to look forward to! In particular, our residential and the end of year performance. I'm not sure who is looking forward to them more - you or me!

Parents and carers, if at any point you would like to discuss any matter with me, please feel free to do so! You can do this either through the message book in the front office or catch me at the end of the school day to arrange a meeting. 

Here's to a great final term!

In English this term we will be commisioned by The National Heritage to support a Tudor estate, which has recently fallen upon hard times. It will be our responsibility to help rejuvenate the property, exploring it's heritage and rich past. Once we have done this, we will be creating non-chronological reports, which will be distributed to potential visitors of the estate. Not only this, we shall be creating our own television adverts using a 'green screen,' aimed at families and tourists in a last ditch attempt to save the traditional Tudor estate!

In our History lessons, we will be focusing upon The Tudor period in particular, learning about what life was like then and key figures from the period. We shall investigate how the Tudors punished criminals and the types of crimes commited during the period, comparing this to other countries around the World. Finally, comparisons will be made with a range of other periods from within history. Who will we decide was the most brutal of them all? 


In our Art lessons this term, we shall be looking at the work of Giuseppe Arcimboldo, a Tudor artist. Arcimboldo created some fascinating portraits using fruit and vegetables! We shall be drawing portraits of Henry VIII using this same technique and ultimatley creating an edible 3D sculpture of a portrait using fruit and vegtables!

Finally, in Science this term we shall be looking at our final topic of Electricity and circuits. This is a fascinating topic, which will be taught using a hands on approach, allowing you to create your own circuits! Your learning will be put to the test when you are asked as a Design Technology project to design a Tudor style 3D house which you will need to 'light up' using your circuit learning! 

I can't wait to see how you get on!

Guided Reading

Each week the children take part in a focused guided reading session with the class teacher. We will work together in this session to read extracts of text and develop our deduction and inference skills through specific and targeted questions. A follow-up activity will take place the next day to consolidate the children's learning. A comment will be written by me and put into the children's new diaries at the end of the school week. In Key Stage Two, we encourage parents to continue to read with their children regularly and write comments in the child's reading diary.  I also encourage the children to write full comments about what they are reading.

P.E. Lessons

Two P.E. sessions take place throughout the week in Year Six.  P.E. lessons usually take place on a Monday afternoon and a Friday morning. However, due to occasional timetable changes these lessons may alter. Therefore, please ensure that your child brings their P.E. kit with them on Monday morning and they will take them home on Friday afternoon.

During the winter months, it is advisable that children bring with them warmer clothes for outdoor sessions.

Please ensure that all P.E. clothing is labelled clearly, to ensure that all items are returned to the rightful owner!


Homework is set on a regular basis in Year Six. All children will receive spellings and either a English or Mathematics homework each week. The homework will outline clearly when the homework has been set and the homework task. Homework and spellings are handed out every Friday afternoon and are to be returned the following Friday.

Learning log homework is set on a half termly basis. This homework will pose a question for the children to research and answer. 

I will ask the children to hand in their new diaries on a Thursday so that I can follow what they've been reading at home.
