Year 6 2017 - 2018


Welcome to Year 6

The Final Countdown

We are now on our final run up to the SATs. Our learning powers are a great way to ensure that you are working towards your goals effectively.

We have left some practice materials for Maths and some websites to visit for Grammar if you would like to get in any extra practice. 

Heroes and Villains Topic

All of our curriculum this half term links to the topic of heroes and villains. So far we have been looking at how we can treat our body like a hero, or like a villain. In ICT, we are going to be coding our own games which hopefully let the goodies win.


Home Learning Task

Your optional home learning task for this half term is to create an Anglo-Saxon or Viking home or costume!

You can do this as an illustration, a model using fabric or recycled rubbish, a description or even a computer based app.

Seeds and Gardeners

Your favourite time of the week seems to be our seeds and gardener's time; the reception children love it too. You really do make the school proud in the way that you care for your little friends. Well done Year Six!


Robin  Wood

Robin Wood was an absolutely fantastic experience for you all. It was fantastic to see you grow in resilience, self-esteem and as a real Holy Saviour's team.



I am super impressed with the attitude that you have shown towards reading recently. It is lovely to see you all enjoying books and talking about them with your friends. Keep the Emoji stories and book recommendations coming.

If you would like to buy some more books of your own, here is a list of books that I recommend this term:

  • Wonder by R.J.Palacio
