Spring Term in Year 6
Welcome back! We hope that you have had an enjoyable Christmas and are well-rested to begin the New Year. Below are just a few updates about events and routines happening in Year 6.
Our topic this term will be all about World War 2 !
Please use the following website for WW2 prior learning.
Homework will continue as last half-term. As always it is vital that your child is reading regularly and should be reading 140 words per minute. Using Times Tables Rocks will ensure that your child has the tools to do more complex calculations. Spelling frame needs to be accessed by the children as part of their homework.
Helping at home
You can help you child prepare for SAT’s by completing homework alongside your child and asking in depth questions about the strategies they have used.
In the event of your child having to self-isolate, please contact your class teacher and we will arrange home learning as long as your child is well enough to engage with it. Please upload learning onto your child's portfolio on Class Dojo.
Please continue wearing PE kits on our PE days. At this time of year when the weather can be cooler, please make sure that you send your child in appropriate warm sportswear.
6OH: Wednesday and Friday
6TM: Wednesday and Friday
6PB: Tuesday and Thursday
Please ensure your child is in the correct school uniform, this helps promote the Moorhill way and helps prepare for high school....
Blue jumper or cardigan, white shirt or polo shirt, black or grey trousers, skirt or pinafore dress, black shoes (not trainers)
Black jumper, black joggers, white t-shirt and trainers.
As this is the final year in primary school, it is important to develop your child’s independence and organisation. We are here to help during this process and please tell us of any changes to walking home arrangements.
Please ensure that your child has a named water bottle in school and it contains only water. To encourage a healthy lifestyle only healthy snacks should be consumed at break time.
We will be using Dojo regularly to share information and upcoming events. Please make sure you check regularly to ensure key information is not missed.
Let us know if you can’t access Class Dojo and we will be happy to help.

We will examine the causes and the impact of air raids on everyday life in the 1940's.
