RE : Inspirational people

Key Questions about Inspirational People

By the end of this unit, I will be able to:

Retell the story of an inspirational person and make links to show how they have used the teachings of Jesus in their daily lives.

Make links between the example set by Jesus and how we can also be inspired by this.

Give reasons to explain why people behave the way they do and show with examples how they are disciples.

Show understanding about the qualities needed to be a Saint, linking previous knowledge from All Saints Celebrations.

Compare one inspirational person to another.


Year 6 -Jesus the Bread of Life


What is the importance of The Last Supper?

What do the signs and symbols of the mass mean?

What is the Catholic belief about the Eucharist and Jesus?


By the end of the unit I will know:

Respond and make links between the Passover, Last Supper and the Eucharist.

Ask and respond to questions about how the actions of Christians are informed by the beliefs of the Lord’s Prayer.

Show understanding of the different parts of the mass.

Know and reflect upon how a belief in the Eucharist shapes the life of a Catholic.

Retell the story of the Passover.


Please ensure your child brings a water bottle to school every day.

Please label ALL clothing and belongings.


Physical Education (PE)

Our P.E day is Tuesday, please ensure your child comes in to school on Tuesday wearing their PE Kit. The PE kit includes black shorts, a white T-shirt and a pair of trainers. As PE lessons will largely be held outside, your child may need something warmer (eg track suit) in cooler weather. For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.



The expectation for homework is that all children will read for 10 minutes per day.

We also expect children to be using TTRockstars regularly.

Times Tables

Children are expected to know all of their tables up to 12 x 12 and associated division facts by the end of Year 4. Please ensure that the children keep their recall skills sharp.



Children need to be able to read and spell all of the Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 spellings. They also need to learn any spelling patterns and rules that are taught in class. Copies of the Y5/6 and Y3/4 spellings have been added to Google Classroom. 


Parent/Carer Curriculum Information

Throughout the year we will attach overviews with more information about what your child will be learning in each curriculum area during each term. We cover a variety of exciting topics throughout the year and may ask your child to bring in items from home to support these.
