Year 6 Curriculum

Welcome back to year 6 for the Summer Term

This term our topic is ‘Looking back and Moving Forward’ which will see us explore the theory of evolution. This exciting topic will see us make our own animals of the future, thinking about the great adaptations of different species before create our very own travel brochures. We will also explore different countries across the world thinking about the physical and human geography, helping us create our very own travel brochures.

Other areas of learning will include transition in to secondary school and talking about how we can support each other through transition and also understand what might stay the same and what might be different.

Reading, Writing and Maths continue to be the key element of our teaching in Year Six. In Maths, we begin the term looking at fractions before moving on to position and direction and statistics.. We will be exploring the text Wonder developing our writing and reading skills as we move through the book.

As always we look forward to PE on a Wednesday (Zambezi) and Thursday (Nile) and the many other exciting learning opportunities that come our way.

Homework will be set weekly via Microsoft Teams on a Friday. It will include your child’s spellings, reading, grammar and punctuation and arithmetic task for the week.

We really love to hear about all of the exciting books, non-fiction text and poetry your children read at home and welcome any comments from the children, parents or carers about what has been read. The expectation of reading a minimum of three times a week has an excellent impact on reading stamina and creative writing in school.

Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Owston, Mrs Robinson & Miss Thompson
