Mrs Dyde's Class 2018 - 2019

Mrs Dyde

Welcome to the Autumn Term 

Welcome back and welcome to Year 6. I hope you have all had a lovely Summer and enjoyed spending time together and are looking forward to the year ahead. This page is intended to help you feel involved and informed of everything that we are doing. Please do take time to read the files below, which along with the welcome letter, will hopefully give you a flavour of what we are going to be doing in Year 6.


English                                        year our first area of study will be the play written by Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet; a very famous yet tragic love story. We have drawn our inspiration from this and have an exciting range of writing planned which covers a variety of text types. 



The Stone Age

Starting Y6 our first topic will be the Stone Age, which will include learning about their homes; their lifestyles from cave paintings; events that happened during the Stone Age and different monuments or sites which have provided us with clues. We already have planned some ideas for writing reports and for some artwork based on cave paintings.

We will also be using larger numbers involving the four operations; focus on building our knowledge of fractions, again using all four operations and look at aspects of geometry.


The Wider Curriculum

We also have a range of learning opportunities and activities planned for our wider curriculum. Looking at our Curriculum planner, you will be able to see a variety of ideas covering aspects of Science, Geography, Music, Art, RE, French, PSHE and ICT.




This term PE will involve a range of invasion games. Please can you make sure that appropriate PE kit is in school every day of the week. To remind you this includes trainers, black tracksuit bottoms (with the school logo) or black shorts, yellow school t-shirt and a black or green school jumper. In some cases, a waterproof, or windproof coat may be beneficial.



Our PPA activities are now mixed, and therefore it is important that the children have the appropriate clothing with them each week for whichever activity they are involved in - this includes clothing for Forest School, (a complete change of clothes, preferably old, including jumpers, wellies, extra socks and a waterproof coat) and their usual PE kit.

It can be found outlined on our Brain Builder and will be added to our class page weekly. It will consist of spellings and times tables to learn (for a test the following Thursday); Maths (set online using MyMaths) and Grammar skills - to be completed in the book sent home. If your child completes their homework sooner than the date expected, please do return it to school as soon as it is done.

We can’t escape them, and we know they are coming towards the end of the year. However, we will be doing our utmost to help your child be ready and fully prepared for them whilst still having plenty of exciting opportunities throughout the year. We will be holding an evening on                  25th September where we will be sharing the expectations for Year 6 and what the SATs will involve so please do come along. We will also be holding our individual parents’ evening later in the term on Thursday 15th November.


Water bottles

Please ensure your child brings their water bottle to school every day and that it is clearly identifiable.

If you have any questions relating to any aspect of school life, please do not hesitate in contacting me or coming to see me. Please feel free to come in at the beginning of the school day, (where possible before 8:45am to allow time for class preparation) or preferably at the end of the school day.
