Year 6

Class Teacher – Ms Becky Powell

Learning Support Assistant - Ms G Coggins

PE is on Wednesday AM and Thursday PM


What have our children been learning in Year 6 across the Autumn Term?

For our first mini mission, we began by stepping into the Place

Between: a magical room filled with flying cards, doves, a

carousel and more magical things. Our first mini mission is

based on the book ‘Leon and the Place Between’ which

involves a very brave boy (Leon) who is invited, by a

mysterious magician, to enter the Place Between (which is

the place filled with the things that have disappeared during

a magic act)!


Despite the book being full of beautiful images, we thought

we could improve the text by adding more beautiful

description and language to fully immerse the reader into

the Place Between. We will be spending three weeks focusing

on interweaving character, setting and plot and creating

atmosphere to rewrite Leon and the Place Between. To

accompany our writing, we are creating the artwork in a

similar style to the original and adding a collage of materials

to add texture.  








In maths, we are beginning with Place Value

which underpins the rest of our maths learning

in Year 6. We will be exploring the value of each

digit up to ten million; reading, writing and

ordering numbers, rounding and much more! 

We will be learning through lots of practical,

hands on learning with real life applications.





Year 6 will have P.E on a Wednesday morning and a Thursday afternoon. Music is also on a Thursday afternoon.
