Welcome to Year 6 St Paul


Our Class Saint

St Paul converted to Christianity on the road to Damascus after experiencing a powerful vision. Paul wrote many letters throughout his life to tell people about the works of Christ. His feast day is the 29th June and he is the patron saint of Missions, Theologians and Gentile Christians.

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." - St Paul in his letter to the Corinthians

Our Class Value

Year 6's class value is 'Persevrance'.  This value is celebrated in April.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9

Year 6 Autumn Newsletter AND TIMETABLE

Year 6 Learning


We shall be focusing on a range of sentence structure and vocabulary for effect and will learn how to use a variety of different genres of text including: Information Texts, Journalistic Writing and Narratives. Our English lessons will start being based around the text ‘Here We Are’ – which is a whole school writing project. We will then continue with the writing units: Non-chronological reports, Creative/Suspense writing, Journalistic writing and ‘The Power of Imagery’ (poetry writing unit).


Mathematical Development:

The children will be looking at number and place value, fractions (including decimals and percentages) and using and applying these skills to real life problems. We will also cover:

  • Place value
  • Order of operations
  • Long multiplication and division
  • Formulae
  • Ratio and proportion
  • 2D / 3D Shapes


Our Autumn term 1 topic will be: ‘How Has The Christian Message Survived For Over 2000 Years?’  The children will be learning how the Christian message spread in the past; the Ascension of Jesus to Heaven; what persecution is and why it might inhibit the spread of a message, Pentecost and the coming of the gift of the Holy Spirit.

As well as our inspiring R.E. lessons happening in school, we will be attending two important virtual church services: Harvest Festival and Remembrance. This will give us the opportunity to think about others; reflecting on global and community issues with regards to our faith and how some circumstances are beyond our control and how we as Christians can help and support each other in times of remembrance.

We will also be completing a mini topic on ‘Should Every Christian Go On a Pilgrimage?’.  The children will be learning what a pilgrimage is, different places for pilgrimage, the difference between special and sacred places, and the commercialisation of ‘sacred’ places. The children will be exploring what the experience of a pilgrimage is like for a Christian before, during and after making a pilgrimage.   At the end of the Autumn term we will focus on celebrating Christmas with our topic of “How would Christians advertise Christmas to show what Christmas means today?”. 


Science – Children will build upon their knowledge of living things from previous years and deepen their understanding of why and how organisms are classified. The children will become aware of the types and characteristics of organisms that belong in each of the five kingdoms of living things.

Humanities (Geography & History)


This unit will involve the children learning about what trade is, what goods are traded and who we trade with. The children will be explaining the UK’s trade links with other countries and using maps to show this. From this, the children will also be exploring what ‘fair trade’ is and why is it so important.


The children will begin by using timelines to look at the way society and religion has changed in Benin. From this, they will be learning to identify the major achievements in Benin and compare them to those of the Vikings and assess the achievements of two civilizations with an appropriate historical response. The children will study the similarities and differences by comparing housing, food, societal structures and beliefs.


Our ICT topic this term is “We are Web Developers.” Children will learn to use their scientific learning to create a branching database in their computing lessons.  We shall be using a range of devices including digital cameras, iPods and iPads. 

Creative Development

Through our topics we will be using a variety of materials such as water colours to link with our learning challenges. Art – During Autumn 1 term, we will be exploring art throughout our unit: “Art with a Message”.   They will also be studying the German artist:  Kathe Kollwitz.

DT/ Food Technology – During the Autumn 2 term, Year 6 will be conducting their own ‘Come Dine with Me’! The children will learn how to organise their meal by finding a suitable recipe for their course and sourcing the ingredients.  They will follow the recipe, including using the correct quantities of each ingredient.
