Redwood Class Year 6

Welcome to Redwood Class 
Our theme this term is 'Zero to Hero: How the Greeks changed the world'

In Year 6 this term, our theme will be Zero to Hero: How the Greeks changed the world, with our main focus being on Ancient Greece. 


We will be learning about what life was like in Ancient Greece as well as their beliefs in the Gods. We will also be learning about what made the Greeks such good inventors and how those inventions still impact our lives today. 

In English, we will be reading the hilarious text, 'Who Let the Gods Out' by Maz Evans.

Key Information 


We will have PE lessons on a Tuesday  and Thursday this year. Please ensure that your child's PE kit is named and in school at all times as we sometimes have additional sessions too. This term, we will also be having swimming sessions on a Thursday in place of our in-school PE session.


Children are expected to be reading at home at least 3 times per week to support their learning. We will regularly check with the children how they are getting on with this.

Times tables

Children are encouraged to continue using TimesTable Rockstars at home each week. Every child has their username and password to enable them to log in. This will be checked in school, if you have any problems logging in, please speak to the class teacher. Of course, there are also many other ways to practice you multiplication facts.

Purple Mash

The children have access to Purple Mash which they can use whenever they want. They could produce some of their theme homework using this platform and then send it to school.
