Camel Class – Year 6

Mr Frame with Mrs Boulton, Mrs Smith and Mrs Vickers

In Camel class, we absolutely love Maths! We like to see how we can use it across the curriculum and enjoy how it helps us to make sense of the world around us. We enjoy writing creatively be it a descriptive story, a historical diary entry or a persuasive letter, we always try to include a range of exciting writing features to wow the reader. 

Camel class is most definitely a reading class! In any spare minute we have we look to explore more of our whole class reading books. We also love to expand our knowledge of books by tackling reading challenges.

Across the rest of the curriculum, we enjoy completing science investigations as well as undertaking projects linked to our History and Geography topics.  Some of our topics this year will include: Armistice and the First World War, in which we will explore what life was like for soldiers and civilians during this time; Mystic Maya where we will look back at the fascinating buildings, customs and rituals of these mysterious people; and Wonderful World during which we will be able to further understand and celebrate the beautiful world that we live in.

Parent Curriculum Information

Each half-term we share an overview of our curriculum with our parents/carers.  A copy of these can be found at the bottom of this page.  A paper copy is sent home each half-term.  We hope our parents/carers find this useful information to know what their child is learning and to support them in having conversations with their children.  


Each half-term, we create and send home a homework menu.  This has a range of learning activities linked to our current topic and reading. We send a paper copy home to parents each half-term. 

Knowledge Organisers

These provide the key knowledge we will be learning in our foundation topics this half-term.  It would be useful to look at these with you child and talk about them.  You could have mini quizzes to see what they can remember, draw parts of them, or they can create their own version.  This will help the children to ensure they remember the knowledge fully. 

If you would like another copy of any of these documents, please don't hesitate to contact us.
