Inspire, believe, achieve!

Year 6 Mrs Nolan

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and, as always, are ready to work hard this term and continue to grow our brains in order to reach our potential!


With the SAT's tests approaching in May, work in Maths and English will be geared towards pushing the children's ability to the next level and giving them a chance to show how creative they can be! To make this possible it is essential that pupils maintain excellent attendance throughout this term. This term's topic will focus on our city of Manchester! We will look at how Manchester has developed through the centuries, how important this is and what exactly makes our city great and unique. I will attach our newsletter which will contain full details of this term’s objectives, but our highlights include:



  • Creating a Quest story incorporating multiple chapters.
  • An explanation text about why aliens invade other planets!
  • A recount in the style of Romeo and Juliet.



  • Multiplying and dividing fractions.
  • Solve problems involving the calculation and the conversion of units of measure (including length, mass, money and time).
  • Draw and translate simple shapes on the co-ordinate plane, and reflect them in the axes.
  • Illustrate and name parts of circles, including radius, diameter and circumference and know that the diameter is twice the radius.


  • Focussing on how the Industrial Revolution changed the dynamics of trade in Manchester and the growth the city has had in its’ economy and importance.
  • Studying the history of The Peterloo Massacre and the impact it had on the city.
  • Structures – designing and building Mancunian monuments.
  • Studying and replicating the unique designs of L. S. Lowry.


It is particularly important that the children continue reading regularly at home to help their understanding of writing and comprehension whilst trying their best with homework in order to consolidate their grammar and maths learning from the week.


If you need to speak to me regarding any issues, do not hesitate to contact me and make sure you follow @firsprimarysale and search #Year6JN to keep track of all our messages, fun activities and work we produce each week!


Thanks for your continued support.
