Welcome to the Summer Term


 The Land of the Free?


We hope that you have had a restful and enjoyable break over Easter and would like to welcome you back to the Summer term at Montgomerie! 


Summer is an important term for Year 6 children: a time for hard work but great rewards.  The first few weeks focus on preparation for SATs and ensuring that we are in the best position possible to do as well as we can.  After that, we will be beginning our Summer term topic entitled 'The Land of the Free?' where we will learn all about geographical and historical elements of the United States.  We will investigate the physical and human geographical scope of different areas of the US; plan, design and make recipes associated with the country; learn about the style of a key US artist and study aspects of society and culture.  In Science, we will be completing a unit of work on the Human Body.  E-safety will remain at the heart of our computing lessons, however we will also be looking at how we can use ICT to support our learning in other subjects.  We will be reading 'Holes" by Louis Sachar in our Active Read sessions. In Maths, we will be continuing to apply our knowledge from all aspects to problem solving activities, ensuring that we are secondary school ready.  Regular practise of our times tables on TTRS and our Key Instant Recall Facts will also continue this term. Our R.E lessons will focus on what place religions have in our world and our PSHE lessons we will be looking at Building happy and healthy relationships and how to deal with change.






  • Please ensure ALL items of uniform including coats, shoes, water bottles and lunch boxes are clearly named.  
  • Children must come to school wearing their P.E kit on their P.E days.  For Year 6, these will be on a Monday and Friday for the Summer Term.  Please remember, children need to have removed earrings prior to coming to school on these days and wear suitable PE kit for colder days, as we will be trying to go outside as much as possible.
  • Children are required to bring in their reading journal, reading book and Homework journal each day.   
  • Your child's lunchbox and water bottles must be wipeable.


Extended Learning Expectations

  • Reading and recording in journals - the minimum expectation for year 6 children is for 20 minutes, five times per week, with the aim of achieving their Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum awards.  Children should be writing their own reading comments in journals as well as parents/carers.  
  • Spellings:  10 words weekly- need to be practised regularly in the Homework journal  
  • Any other homework will be given out every Friday or on SATs Companion.  Homework tasks must be completed by the following Wednesday.


If you need to speak to a teacher, appointments for a mutually convenient time can be made via the office.  Alternatively, email admin@montgomerieprimary.essex.sch.uk 


 We are very much looking forward to a great term!
