We will be learning about place value to start the year before moving into calculation work around the four operations.


Mrs Fidge will be teaching the children science on a Friday morning. Our topic for the term is light.

Religious Education:

We will be learning about the Creation story and considering whether scientific views are conflicting or complementary.


We will be learning about e-safety in term 1.


Our topic for the term is Ancient Egypt. We will be exploring the story of Tutankhamun's temple discovery and will be considering what daily life would've been like.then.

Physical Education:

We will be receiving a specialist PE lesson from Mr Booker on a Monday afternoon. On a Wednesday afternoon, the children will have a swimming lesson at Faversham swimming pool. Please ensure correct kit is provided on these days.


Mrs Willmott will be teaching the children music on a Thursday afternoon.

Homework and Spellings:

Homework and spellings are set on a Friday and are due in the following Wednesday. In Year 6, the children are set both English and Maths homework for the week. These is supplied with a 'week-ahead sheet' so you can see if there are any upcoming events for your diaries.

If you have any questions about your child's learning, then please feel free to speak with me or make an appointment at the school office.

Thank you for your continued support,

Mr Wood (Class 6 Teacher) and Ms Sullivan (Class 6 Teaching Assistant)
