Curriculum

In Year Six we explore three exciting topics:

Autumn Term Spring Term Summer Term
Pupils will investigate the Second World War, including causes, consequences and interpretations including propaganda. Starting with the dawn of history, children will investigate heredity, evolution and adaptation in humans. Water shapes our land and lives, so we will examine water, rivers and the sea both locally and internationally.

Details of our termly curriculum can be found in the topic leaflets below. Please click to download.

In Year 6, PE is on Mondays and Thursdays.

Children need their PE kit for both inside and outside sport. During colder months, please do include a fleece. On the children’s PE days, they come to school in their PE kit and stay in it all day.

 

Home Learning

Reading

Year 6 children are expected to read at home regularly. We recommend at least fifteen minutes five times a week. This is essential to developing reading skills and all learning.

Spelling

Spelling lists will be sent out each term. Spelling tests are held every Friday.

If your child has a Lexia account, please encourage them to practise for 10 minutes a day. Click here to log in.

Times Tables

Children should spend time each week practising their times tables. Children have individual logins to Times Tables Rockstars and can build progress by playing regularly.

Topic Homework

Each week children are set a specific piece of homework based on class work that week. This is generally English, maths or topic related.

Homework is set each Friday and is due the following Wednesday. Homework is sent home via SchoolPing.

 

Food and Drink
