Times Tables Club

Can I remind you that a thorough knowledge of the times tables is an essential part to understanding many areas of the year 6 numeracy topics. For the children who need support in this area tables club will start at the beginning of the term.

If your child is part of the tables club please help them practise their tables at home.

For some tables help and games click here.


We will be continuing our push on reading this academic year and, as usual, We would appreciate it if your child would bring an appropriate reading book to school each day. This saves time and, along with using our school reading scheme, allows me to assess strengths and weaknesses as well as allowing the children to have a set book to read. 

Please help us by regularly listening to your child read. This will certainly help them to progress and will allow you to see if they are fully understanding what they are reading. It's also a good excuse to spend quality time being read to.

Summer 2 Term 6 2019

Welcome back to the last term of the year and the last term that year 6 will spend at Southville! We are now looking to help the children make a smooth transition into year 7.


Our term's topic is Curious Crime. This will form the majority of our lessons, combining literacy, science, art, PSHE, history and geography.

We will begin the term looking at the  brief history of crime, as well as report writing in the style of a police crime report. The science portion of the topic will investigate electrical circuits and the children will get to build their own electrically motorised police vehicle. 

In Art we will be looking at and creating the penny dreadful illustrations that were found in the late 19th century punch magazines.

Year 6 will also be looking at certain areas of crime that can affect  teenagers. This is obviously important as the children become more independent in their lives. These lessons will also coincide with our 'life skills' trip to Bristol's Create Centre.

We will continue  with SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) lessons. For some help and revision for spelling and grammar click here and for punctuation games click here. 


This terms literacy targets are:


Numeracy will focus on revising some of the areas that we have studied over the year as part of transition in to year 7. The children will continue to practise their arithmetic skills, as well as problems involving mathematical operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). We will also be looking at applying numeracy practically, as a means of showing the children how maths is used in everyday life.


This terms arithmetic targets are:

Please make sure your child has brought their reading book and has their PE kit at school.
