Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome to Year 6’s class page. This term we are learning about Ancient Greece. The children will learn more about the Ancient Greek way of life and the lasting legacy of amazing inventions that they left. For example: the Democratic system, the Olympics, theatre and plays and of course, wonderful Greek myth stories. The children will all get to experience a day in Ancient Greece with our ‘History off the Page’ visit which will bring their learning to life.
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 Spring 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. On Thursday 1st March, we will be celebrating World Book Day which will be Harry Potter themed. Please feel free to dress up in a way that reflects these wonderful books!
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. Although we still have five months left, the Spring Term is an intense period of learning in which the children make huge leaps and bounds in their 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.
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, Mrs Miles, and Mrs Connolly
