Above is an example of a typical weekly timetable for Year 6. Certain lessons (typically Maths and English and other morning lessons) will always remain in the same timeslots each week. Afternoon lessons will vary week to week depending on the focus of our topic and other activities/events that are going on in school.

Author Focus

Our focus author is currently Emma Carroll - you can read more about her and her books by visiting the page linked here:

This half term in music, we are lucky to be having weekly lessons with two of our musicians in residence! Here are some photos of us enjoying playing the glockenspiels with Mrs Carruthers, who is working with both classes every Wednesday morning.


On Thursdays, both classes have a lesson with Mr Taylor; children are learning about the Baroque period and also exploring digital music using Garage Band on the iPads.

In Maths, we have begun the term by working on number and place value. You can see the children enjoying using a range of manipulative materials to represent different numbers. We have also been learning about rounding and negative numbers.


We have been doing a variety of work around our focus text ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’. We have written instructions on how to evacuate a cinema during an air raid, created missing posters about one of the characters and are now beginning to write some diary entries from different perspectives!
