Year 6

Autumn 2023

Welcome back to school!

After a refreshing break over the summer, it’s so nice to welcome you all to the start of a new school year at St George and St Martin Catholic Academy and to Year 6! We are so looking forward to teaching your children in their last year at our school!  We have a busy year ahead and the children have made an enthusiastic start especially in their new role as leaders of our school.

It is already clear that the children are eager to sink their teeth into all of their new learning. We will be teaching a variety of different subjects in Year 6 and the children will enjoy a full and rich curriculum that covers all the subjects in the National Curriculum. We have begun reading our first novel, ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’, by our class author Michael Morpurgo. The children will love reading this, and it will help develop both the children’s reading and writing skills.

Here is a taster of just some of the things we will be learning:


  • Classic poetry
  • Fiction texts

  • Autobiographies


  • Immediate recall of times tables and related division facts
