Welcome to Year 6!

Y6 is a great year group – we are the oldest (and hopefully the wisest) classes in the school. This last year at Little Mead is a very important one where we have to prove ourselves in our SATs and prepare for our transition to secondary school. We are now mature enough to take on extra responsibilities around the school and to set a good example for the younger children. This is why you will be able to spot us looking smart in our ties. Y6 is also jam packed with fabulous experiences; such as our trip to London, camp and of course our leavers show! Keep checking this page to see our news.

Term 1

This term we will be reading ‘Floodland’ by Marcus Sedgwick. It’s an exciting thriller about surviving in a devastated world. What will Zoe do in order to survive? In Maths, we will be working on our place value and building strong foundations in number to prepare us for our SATs. We will continue with our Maths Wizards challenges and we are looking forward to getting into our new reading challenge too!

As this term has a history focus, we will also be looking at the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and those who opposed it. We are very much looking forward to our trip to Wesley Chapel and Bristol Cathedral to explore this in more detail. In Science will be studying the human body in more detail and finding out what’s inside us all! We will also be looking at how the heart works.
