St Martin & St Mary Church ofEngland Primary School


Welcome toSt Martin & St Mary Church ofEngland Primary School

Year 6

Autumn Term 2021


What an exciting first term we have in store for all our Year 6 pupils! Now until Christmas we will be packing our time with lots of exciting learning:


In English we will be looking at Biographies and their structure and purpose. When writing our own biographies about Charles Darwin, we will use our understanding to target our writing to the correct audience and hope to inform whilst maintaining the reader's attention. We will then have a morning where we publish our work and share it with other teachers and children in school. 


In Maths we will mainly be focusing on number skills, including place value and formal written strategies. We will apply our learning to reasoning problems, looking at a range of strategies to reach an answer. We also have exciting investigation interspersed through the term where children have the opportunity to work in groups using the school grounds.


We also have a number of exciting projects that we will be part of this term:

  • Westmorland County Show
  • House Captain Elections
  • Patterdale Residential 
  • Car design and Grand Prix
  • Tenner Project


Please support your children with their weekly homework:


  • We ask that you read with them whenever possible or have them read to you at least three times a week and sign their reading diary. 
  • Schedule time for them to complete their weekly Spellings, Maths and English homework. 


Many thanks,


Year 6 Team
