Summer Term's REAL Project


When I grow up...

Our REAL project for the Summer term is our Creative project. Throughout the project there will be a strong emphasis on art, music and drama, aswell as continuing our learning in the other curriculum areas,

We do not have an essential question for this project as we are going to be exploring lots of different aspects of growing up and moving on and felt a question would narrow the work that we could all do.

We will be completing lots of art work including photography which the children will be able to keep when they leave SJA and parents and children alike can look back on these fondly in years to come! We will also be creating ‘farewell canvases’ which the children will cover with images and signatures instead of the rushed signing of shirts on the last day. We will also be sewing cushions out of their SJA jumpers. The children have left so many legacies for others with their previous REAL projects, that we wanted to make sure that they left SJA with their own!

We will also leave a legacy for the school….the children will be holding a fundraising evening to raise money to buy the future pupils at SJA a present. Get your dabbers ready - we’re going to be having a night of prize bingo!

Another part of the project that we are incredibly excited by is our end of term production and our formal leavers’ service. We will be putting on Bugsy Malone which Mrs Rose is terribly excited to choreograph and Mr Graves is really looking forward to being a bad guy with a silly string gun!

For the first time we will also be holding a formal leavers’ service. Tis will be for the families of year 6 pupils only. We will be looking back over the past 4 years at SJA, sharing memories and presenting awards. Be sure to bring your tissues!






All of our written English work is linked to our e-book including our own adventurous narrative writing based on The Red Pyramid, explanations texts and information texts focusing on Ancient Egyptian culture and also instructions linked to our 2d and 3d art!


For our grammar sessions we are focusing on revising the key terminology from previous years and honing our skills ready for May (shhhh). This link may be helpful for both you and your child... 


Spellings will be sent home every week.  All children will have the same spellings.



Over the term we will be looking at these aspects of the maths curriculum.  We will focus on teaching the children the skills and then supporting them through problem solving involving these skills.  If you require further information, please do not hesitate to speak with your child's maths teacher.

Important Information


PE is every Wednesday and is taken by Mr Graves (6G) and Mr Stead (6R).

Games is every Thursday afternoon and Miss Sanderson takes both classes.

Please can you make sure that your child has their full kit (including trainers) for each session.


Reading diaries are checked every week (sometimes more often) to see what the children have been reading and also to see who has recorded this three times during the week to become a reading star.  In Year 6 the children are rewarded with 15 minutes of free time during Friday afternoon.


You can follow your Year 6 teachers on Twitter, with regular updates, photographs and reminders of what's happening at school.
