Summer Term

Welcome to Hazel Class' page! It's a new term - the Summer Term!


Our History focus for this term is 'Britain at War'. In this project, we will be exploring the First and Second World War; understanding the start and end of each. Along the way, we will also explore the conditions of war, weaponry, significant events and people. 


In Art this term, we will be focusing on 'Expression'. In this unit, the children will learn abut the Expressionist Art Movement and the 'Father of Expressionism', Edvard Munch. We will explore the different ways to portray feelings and emotions in art to create an imaginative self-portrait.

  • 1 x English based homework
  • Spellings to learn
  • 1 x Maths based homework
  • Daily TTRS practise
  • Regular Lexia practise 
  • 1 x extra piece of Foundation Based Homework e.g. PSHCE, Computing, Art etc


Please upload a picture of completed homework to ClassDojo.


Spellings and Phonics:  It is expected that in Year 6, all the Year 3/4 words and Year 5/6 list of spellings are are known. Please practise these and USE these words in your writing.
Remember to use some of our Spelling strategies!

Times Tables:  This is still vitally important!! Most of the Year 5/6 Maths curriculum links to pupil knowledge of timestables so it is extremely important to keep those skills sharp! Keep practising - with TTRS and Sumdog!

Lexia: Lexia is proven to help children make accelerated progress when reading, writing and speaking. Regular access of this will help children make good progress with their spelling and reading comprehension skills!

Useful Information

PE is on Thursdays. On Thursday mornings, the children will be swimming so they must have all equipment needed for this. Please ensure your child wears their named, correct PE kit in school on these days, that earrings are not worn and long hair is tied up.


The children have access to their water bottles in the classroom during the day. Please ensure that your child has a named water bottle in school which is taken home regularly to be washed.


Your child is welcome to bring in a healthy snack of fruit or vegetables each day. 

Reading books are your child's responsibility and they will be responsible for changing their own book. Please record the date and title of the book that they have chosen in their reading record and make sure that your child’s reading record is signed to say they have finished their book and read as regularly as you can with them at home. 


Please note that our timetable is flexible and may be subject to change!
