Learning and Achieving Together


Welcome to Topaz Class

It has been a great half-term in Year 6.

We started our Rainforest Topic in Geography and Living Things in Science. To help us with this, we visited London Zoo and visited the Rainforest centre to complete a workshop and saw lots and lots of living things!

We have been working hard in Maths and English as well as our other subjects.

There is no home learning task this week but you could have a go at our topic research task and the new Valentines Maths Challenge - for details of both see further down this page.

We hope you have a happy and restful half-term and we look forward to seeing you in a week.

Home Learning

No task set for half-term week but there is the optional topic task and the new Maths challenge to have a go at if you want to!


Your optional home learning task for Spring Term is all about rainforests. If you choose to complete it, it will be due in the week before the Easter holidays.


You could think about:

  • What the rainforests are

  • The different types of rainforests

  • Where the world's rainforests are

  • The different layers in a rainforest

  • The plants and animals you find in rainforests

  • Why they are important

  • What we get from them

  • Why they are in danger

  • Amazing rainforest facts


    You could look at the following websites to help you:



No set spellings for half-term but do keep practising your individual spellings.


Times Tables:

Keep practising all the times tables facts you find tricky - use the test we completed on Friday to see which facts to focus on.



There is no reading homework over half-term but you will receive house points if you do keep reading and recording in your reading record.



PE Days:

PE Days for Topaz Class in Spring Term are Mondays and Wednesdays. Please make sure you have your PE kit in school on those days.
