Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome to Year 6’s class page.
This term we are learning about France. As part of our History and Geography, the children will be learning about France with links to WWI and WWII. This will include our residential trip to the Chateau du Broutel in July where the children will experience French culture, history and get a chance to use their french language skills.
On this page, you will find our Year 6 curriculum map, which gives the overview of learning across the year; weekly homework; and any additional information we need to communicate with our parents.
If you would like further information about learning at St Peter’s, please visit the curriculum section of our website. If you would like to speak to one of the Year 6 teachers about learning, please do not hesitate in contacting them.

The Summer term is no doubt one of the busiest for the Year 6 children. It will be action packed and filled with lots of exciting activities that will extend and challenge your learning as well as broaden your horizons!
In Year 6, as well as working hard to achieve your full potential academically, you will
expand your independence with transition visits to your new Senior schools and enjoy our fabulous residential trip to France!
Homework will increase over the term to consolidate the children's learning in class and help them revisit specific topics as revision for the SATs in May. The Year 6 children will experience a broad and balanced curriculum throughout the year; it is an intense period of learning in which the children make huge leaps and bounds in their independence, progress and attainment which also readies them for their transition into Secondary School life.
Homework will always be handed out on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. Should you have any problems with your work there will be the opportunity to discuss any difficulties each Monday with your teacher. Please do not leave it until the day it should be handed in to tell us you did not understand it. Communication and organisational skills are the key to your continued success throughout the year,
We look forward to teaching you this term and supporting you in all your activities and learning throughout the rest of the year; working together to celebrate your successes!
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs Downey and Mrs Claxton
