Yr 6 - Super Cedars

Super Cedars

Welcome back Year 6!

I hope you and your families have all had a wonderful summer and you are excited to be back at school!

Our theme for the Autumn term is …

Friendship and Courage


During Autumn 1 we will be reading…

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone


Year 6 Curriculum



In our writing lessons, we will be using Harry Potter as a stimulus to write fantasy stories, non-chronological reports and adverts. We will be focussing on improving our language choices, sentence structures and the impact our writing has on the audience. We will also be working hard to improve our spelling and ensure this is applied within our writing.  



In our shared reading lessons, we will be developing our skills by reading and understanding the text across a range of genres - both fiction and non-fiction. Our main focus will be on understanding vocabulary and improving our inference skills. 



In our maths lessons this half-term, we will be learning about addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, and how these can be represented in different mathematical structures. Alongside this, we will be practising our arithmetic skills daily- including times tables for those children who are not yet fluent in them.


Key Reminders 

  • Read at least 3 times per week
  • Practise spellings on your colour each week
  • Practise your times-tables or arithmetic skills each week
  • Complete homework- more to come!
