We would like to welcome you to Year 6Y's class page. 

We hope that during the year you will enjoy finding out about all the wonderful things we will be learning in our lessons. To keep up to date with what is happening inside our classroom follow us on twitter @HolyFamilyL8_6Y

In Come and See lessons, we are beginning new topics; the first of which is 'Sources' in which we will explore the Holy Bible and look at how to locate sections and its importance to our Catholic identity.

English lessons will incorporate a balance of reading and writing skills and our class novel is Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo. This links with our  History topic and explores the legend of Beowulf and Grendel (a hideous monster). Children should read every day to improve their vocabulary and understanding but mainly for the love of reading.  

In Mathematics, we will be looking at ratio and proprtion. The children will investigate the relationship between quantities through exploring recipes and the proportion of each ingredient needed. In addition, we will be revising conversion so that we can confidently convert between a variety of units of measure.  Homework will be set weekly in mathematics each Friday. This homework should be returned on Monday.


In Science we will be covering the topic of Materials. Children will learn about separating mateials, dissolving and evaporation through practical science work. They will also consolidate and enhance their skills as investigators - looking for patterns and relationships and making predictions and conclusions.

PE this half term will be on Mondays and Fridays. It is essential that your child has a PE kit to take part in these sessions (one of which will be basketball and the other fitness) including appropriate footwear - pumps or training shoes. 

HOMEWORK - The main homework will be project based  around our topic about the Vikings.   The children should spend time on either : 

  1. a longer piece of writing,
  2. an art based  piece or
  3. a scrapbook style submission. 

We are looking for originality and effort for the children to showcase what they have found out.


If  you have any questions, please feel free to talk to myself  by arranging an appointment.

Thank you,

Mrs Young


Ps. Do not forget to listen to your child regularly at home. Children can bring their home reader in to change as often as they would like. Please remenber to sign the reading card they will be given with their book.
