Year 6 Home and Extended learning support.
In order to aid learning at home, we are recommending that all pupils follow the guidance set out in lessons and through Class Dojo Portfolio Tasks at school as they move through Year 6. Learning can be supported by using the resources listed here. We are committed to ensuring your child is supported in their learning of the curriculum. Through your help at home, we hope that the pupils do not miss any critical information or learning in preparation for secondary school due to absence through illness or missing homework. If there are any problems or you would like further guidance with anything, please contact us via Class Dojo.
Keep up to date on the school and class pages on Class Dojo.
Stay healthy and stay happy - and thank you for visiting, reading and continuing with your education at home!

In Year Six we cover a wide range of themes to engage the pupils in their learning.
These are more age-related than in previous years and include topics such as:
- Local history study - The Pentrich Rebellion
- Crime and Punishment
The more mature topics aim to reflect the Year Six KS2 curriculum and explore the detail and depth of subject matter they will encounter at secondary school and thus give them a head start.
In English we study the following books and English units over the year, covering a range of genres and styles, including:
- Pearl Harbour - letter writing
- D-Day - diary writing
- Hatchet by Gary Paulsen
- The Bear and the Hare
- Harry Potter
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
- Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
- A range of poetry
- The Titanic
