Caythorpe Primary School

Inspiring the future



Year 6

Mr O'Mahoney

Welcome to the Hogwarts Class

Summer Term (4) "Which decade has the best music?"

Here at Caythorpe we have developed an Enquiry based curriculum. Each of our termly topics is based on a question. This term the children will be literally dancing thought the decades as we explore "Which decade has the best music?" 

In science we will be learning about the human body. This will include the circulatory system, blood cells, the human heart. WE will investigate how diet, exercise and lifestyle choices affect the human body as well as the impact of drugs on the human body.

At Caythorpe we follow the White Rose Maths Mastery scheme of work. When taught to master maths, children develop their mathematical fluency without resorting to rote learning and are able to solve non-routine maths problems without having to memorise procedures. Please see the current curriculum overview below for concepts to be  covered this term.

We follow the Lincolnshire Agreed syllabus for RE. 


Please can your child keep a named PE kit in school all week (dark shorts and/or jogging bottoms, a white T-shirt and trainers or plimsolls.) If the weather is fine, PE may take place outdoors so please make sure your child has an outdoor kit. Please can you also ensure that all items of school clothing are named to prevent any mix-ups at the end of the day.

Being able to swim is a vital life skill. All children are expected to be able to swim at least 25m using a range of swimming stokes effectively. If children are still unable to complete this length then they will have the opportunity to continue swimming sessions in Year 6.


Your child has been given a new homework menu which contains a variety of homework tasks for them to complete in their own time. (A copy can be downloaded below). Each task has an allocated number of points with the aim being for each child to reach 25 points by the end of the half term. This will be checked every Friday afternoon.
