Welcome to Year 6 - Larks!
Welcome to Year 6's page!
We have an exciting year ahead of us! It is jam packed for the children’s last year in primary.
Our scheduled P.E. lessons take place on Wednesday and Friday. However, please ensure P.E kits are in school at all times as timetables can change and we do not want the children missing out. Children will be asked to remove earrings and long hair is tied back.
Homework is given out weekly on a Thursday. It should be returned the following Tuesday. There is a labelled homework box in the classroom, where children can hand in their books. Children are given maths homework and spellings to learn. It is important they learn what these spellings mean and how to use them in context. They have a full week to learn their spellings and they are tested, through dictation, first thing on a Thursday morning.
At Larkrise we expect each child to read every day. Daily reading has a huge impact on progress and attainment.
Autumn Term-'What was life like in World War Two?'
We study all aspects of WW2 in this term. We look at how and why the war began, rationing, evacuation, the role of women, the Blitz, the Holocaust and the impact the war has had on Britain. We also create some delicious dishes from war time recipes and design and make our own make do and mend project!
Our science topics are Light and Animals including Humans.
Spring Term- 'Top Secret.'
We obviously can’t tell you too much about this topic, as it is a secret! This term, we have a heavy focus on our geography skills as well as embracing our inner spy!

Summer Term- 'All the World’s a Stage.'
We immerse ourselves into Tudor life. We look at what life was like for rich and poor Tudors. We investigate forms of entertainment as well as the gruesome punishments and we study influential figures such as, Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and of course, William Shakespeare.
