Summer Term

We are very excited to embark on our final term at Saffron Green. Year 6 have much to look forward to, SATS will come round quickly, beginning on 9th May. We then have our exciting residential trip to look forward to.

We will be studying the Victorian era in history and reading maps in Geography. We are also going to enjoy appreciating and recreating Pop Art. We will be improving our tennis and athletics skills.

Have a great Easter everyone.

Spring round up

Year 6 have had such a successful term. We have  loved learning all about the Tudors and the rule of King Henry VIII. We have immersed ourselves into the different biomes of the world in Geography and studied the fascinating aspects of surrealist art. In Science we have delved into biology, investigating life cycles, healthy living, and even dissecting a pigs heart. 

We are on a winning streak! Year 6 won the decorative door competition on World Book Day and due to our successes, are through to the County hockey finals in June. 

We have loved watching the ducklings hatch and grow and, as always, Flopsy is a fabulous addition to our class!



Year 6 

Spring term

After a fabulous start to the year with lots of exciting learning, year 6 are looking forward to beginning a new Spring term.

We have lots of learning to do and interesting new topics to discover and explore. We have been working incredibly hard on our homework so far and have some fun, imaginative new projects to begin in Spring.

History:  The Spring term will be all about the Tudors so get exploring ready to learn the fascinating lives of royalty and their subjects during this incredible period in history.

Geography:   The Spring term will take us on a journey of discovery through a range of biomes from the Savannah desert to tropical rain forests.

Art:  We will be investigating Surrealist painters and their work.

Science: This term is all about Biology, from understanding how our bodies change and grow to the inner workings of the heart and other organs. We will investigate plants and link growth to evolution.


This term we will focus on writing to create mood and atmosphere for the reader, creating some extremely spooky tales.

We will then deepen our understanding of writing diary entries.

SATS will be upon us in May so we will also be working hard to consolidate reading comprehensions, spelling and grammar this term.


Maths will be focused on consolidating the four operations and deepening our strategies and knowledge. We will be focusing on reasoning questions, time, fractions and large numbers.

Autumn term 

Welcome to  Year 6. We have begun the year with a bang and had a fantastic Workshop to kick start our learning on our History topic: The Ancient Greeks. Everyone looked fantastic in their Greek costumes! We will be continuing to investigate the Ancient Greeks this half term. 

In Geography we are studying North America and in Science we are investigating all we can on forces and magnets.

Don't forget PE kits on a Thursday, we are learning new target games this half term.



During English we are enjoying the story 'The Wisp, S Story of Hope' by Zana Fraillon. We will be using the story as a stimulus to plan and write our own narratives using exciting vocabulary.



In Maths we are consolidating our learning from Year 5, focusing on negative numbers, place value and decimal numbers.
