Welcome to Year 6 Rowan Class!

Class Teacher – Mrs Walker and Mrs Jones

Class Teaching Assistant – Miss McGuinness

Class governor – Francis Kwateng


In literacy we will be studying texts linking to WW2. We will explore a range of texts through reading and writing, including One Boy’s War and Fireweed.

We will use drama to explore characters and support us with developing our description skills.


This year we will have separate sessions focusing on spelling, grammar and punctuation. The objectives we will focus on this term are: punctuation for parenthesis; commas for clarity; semi-colons and colons; as well as speech punctuation.


Reading will be delivered through accelerated reader and talk for reading. Reading sessions will take place each morning and will focus on building a range of skills, such as: retrieval, inference and summarising.


During this term we will focus on fractions, decimals, percentages. We will then link this learning to measure. Learning will be practical, with lots of interactive activities. We will also tackle a wide range of problem solving, arithmetic and reasoning questions throughout all aspects of maths. We will continue to work on our times tables fluency. We will do this through a range of activities, games and songs. Times tables will also be sent home to practise each week.


Our focus in science will be light and sight. We will carry out lots of practical investigations.


Our class topic for Spring term links with our literacy focus of WW2. We will begin by looking and countries involved and the causes of the war, followed by how this has impacted the local area.


Rowan class will continue with bass guitars this term. This will be delivered through a fortnightly group session.


  • P.E will take place on Monday afternoons with KABS sessions.
  • Homework will be given out every Thursday and is due back the following Tuesday. This will consist of times tables, spelling and maths skills.
  • Reading at home will form the other part of homework. We are encouraging children to read at home as much as possible and will be checking their reading records on a Friday. Each read will then be counted and contribute towards their 100 Reads.
  • Maths booster sessions will commence this term and will be held on Wednesdays after school. All children are strongly recommended to attend these sessions.
