Welcome to Year 6 at Hollinhey

Please remember that you can contact us via email:

We are here to keep everyone in our school community safe. If you have a safety worry, Mrs Clough is here to help.






This half-term Year 6 will be learning about Crime & Punishment since 1066 as part of their wider History Curriculum.

In Science we will be looking at Light and our English theme is Poetry which will include WW1 poetry and a study of The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes.

In Art we will study Cubism and learn to look at Still Life through different viewpoints to compile a Cubist-effect drawing using different techniques of mark making.








PE Days are Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that the children wear Hollinhey PE kit and their school jumpers. 

Book bags

In year 6 the children only need a small book/ruck sack. Please ensure the only things the bag contains are lunch/snack and  water bottles. All children will be provided with their own school equipment so there is no need to send in pencil cases etc.

All current planning and Knowledge Organisers are in the 'Files to Download' below.


All pupils should be reading every night. They may bring a book home from school (they can exchange it when finished) or read a book from home or the town library. They will have a different book in school and read in school for at least 15 minutes every day.

Weekly spellings are set every week for the majority of Y6 Pupils. They are practised in school on Weds, Thurs & Fri then tested on Monday. To help their learning they need to complete at least 5 games of Spelling Shed plus practise a quick test before Monday. Some pupils complete IDL rather than have set weekly spellings. This needs to be accessed at home too.

It is really, really important that Y6 pupils have quick and accurate recall of multiplication and division facts. Practise, practise practise! It makes a huge difference to their attainment in Maths if the recall is fluent (imagine trying to complete 234 x 23 if you don't know your 2x 3 x 4x tables!) Every month we complete a 'Gig' on TT Rockstars in school which monitors their progress and sets their questions on TT Rockstars.

In addition, Mrs Massey will set a paper-based Maths homework and Mrs Storer a paper-based English homework on a Wednesday for submitting on Monday morning. This will focus on retrieving learning from the classroom and allow further practice and consolidation.

Yellow homework folders with paper homework and spellings will come home on Wednesdays and must be brought back on Mondays. 

 Our Y6 Digital Platform Learning expectations are:

3 x 5 min TT Rockstars

5 x Spelling Shed games or 5 IDL activities (Weds onwards)
