Year 6 Grizzly Bears

Welcome to Grizzly Bears!

Our class teachers are Mrs Mathieson and Mr Hughes. We also have Mrs Guy working with us this year. 

Some important things to remember in Year 6:

Homework is a very important part of Year 6. It helps children to revisit certain areas of the curriculum to consolidate work covered in class. It also prepares them for life in a secondary school.

Maths and English homework is given out every Friday and should be returned to school by Tuesday morning.

Magic maths and spellings are given out on Wednesday and tested the following Wednesday. You can find the list all of the Year 5 and 6 words below:  


We have been studying the narrative poem, The Highwayman, and drawing upon the language style to write and recount by one of the protagonists.


Here is an example:


As children prepare for their end of year tests, we need to ensure that they become increasingly fluent in their use of mathematical facts. We see every year that children who have learned their multiplication tables benefit greatly from the ability to recall facts quickly.

To help your child improve their speed of recall, we have organised a way for them to practise at home online.

Autumn Topic

In the Autumn term we study Russia, focusing on two important events in its more recent history: the revolution of 1917 and the Siege of Leningrad. We also look at what it is like to live in Russia today, including in places above the Arctic Circle, for example.

Children should be taking regular visits to the 'TTRockstars' website - they all have logins and codes, so no excuses!



Year 6 is such an important milestone in your child’s education. It is their first experience of externally marked statutory tests, as well as their final year in a primary school. It is essential that they make every effort to be in school every day!
