Woodlea Junior School


Spring Term 


Hello! Welcome to Year 6! It is great to welcome you all back to another super year at Woodlea.


Mr McCracken is the class teacher, and Mrs Quinn is our class TA. 



In English this half term, we will be completing a unit based on Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.



In our Maths, we are using the Maths No Problem scheme of work and will begin the term by looking at decimals. 


Wider Curriculum

Our wider curriculum focus for the Spring Term will be the Industrial Revolution and how it changed Lancashire. This will include our trip to Helmshore Mill in January. Our RE focus is Islam, and in science we will be studying the circulatory system. 



Our PE days are Thursday and Friday and an outdoor PE Kit is recommended as the weather remains cold.



Homework will be set on a Friday and it is to be completed by the following Friday.  Homework will be set online using either TTRockstars, Mathletics and  Spelling Shed.

This will be put on the class page each week.



Children must read at home a minimum of four times within a week; please can at least two of these reads be completed on Reading Plus. Books will go home on a Friday and must be returned on the following Friday. Reading records must be signed by an adult.

Autumn Term

Autumn term has certainly been a busy one! Alongside our curriculum, we have enjoyed a performance of Macbeth from the Young Shakespeare Company, been pond dipping, built go-karts with the UK Military School and enjoyed making a Tudor pottage, among many other great experiences. As the weather warms up you can be sure more will follow in Spring!

Please ensure 4 reads are completed throughout the week too (at least 2 on Reading Plus). There is no official TT Rockstars homework this week, but children can still play games to improve their times tables. Have a nice weekend,

Mr McCracken
