Autumn Term

We have had a busy term so far in year 6!

Imperial War Museum

On Wednesday 26th September, we visited the Imperial War Museum North to learn more about World Wars 1 and 2 and other conflicts around the world. This links into our topic work where we are learning about World War 2. We have been looking at what life was like for children during the war. We’ve linked this into English and have looked at texts such as Anne Frank, Rose Blanche and Goodnight Mr Tom.

Termly homework

Our termly homework is based on WW2 and involves us being creative. This could be making our own fact file, Anderson shelter, gas mask, poster and many more.


Greater Manchester Fire Service

On Friday 5th October, we had a visit from Greater Manchester fire service. They spoke to us about what to do in the case of a fire, fire safety techniques and the importance of being safe, particularly around Bonfire night.




Hattersley Train Station Art Project

We have been approached to do an art project which will hopefully be a permanent war memorial at Hattersley train station. We have been decorating pebbles to commemorate the end of World War 1 in its centenary year.


Just a reminder of a few things:



Topic homework -creative


Spellings written into sentences

One piece of maths from maths booklet each week


Reading at least 10 minutes per night

Times tables at least 10 minutes per night

Spelling practice at least 10 minutes per night

We cannot stress enough how important this is, even for competent readers, as it helps to build reading stamina. Spelling practice is equally important as in the SATs tests, spelling related questions are equivalent to around 25 marks.


On Tuesday afternoons we have PE, please make sure you bring your FULL kit.


On Friday afternoons, we have music. Please ensure you remember your instrument every week and all instruments must be taken home each Friday.
