Welcome to Year 6

Here at Northfield St Nicholas, we love to read! We have is Skellig by David Almond. The core text is supplemented by a variety of additional texts, to support children developing their reading fluency and confidence across a range of text types.

All children have a reading book based on their assessment level. Please remember to read at least 3 times a week and log this on BoomReader. 

Every Wednesday, the children have the opportunity to visit our school’s ‘Lost Library’. During their weekly library sessions children can change their existing library books. These are taken home for them to enjoy in their home setting!


Here at NSN, we follow CUSP for our writing curriculum. CUSP  provides an ambitious curriculum, covering the necessary skills required to be successful readers and writers, who are prepared for high school.

This half  term we will be writing an adventure story based on a natural disaster. We will revisit skills including: speech, use of progressive past tense and using effective devices to describe characters, settings and atmosphere. We will then move on to writing a newspaper report.

This half term, we will be covering the following Maths units: Decimals, fractions and percentages, area and perimeter and statistics.
