Class Teacher: Mr Dewdney

Welcome to Year 6!

We're a busy class! This page will give you a little flavour of some of the things we get up to...

Our Curriculum

English

The children will write and read a range of genres from journalistic to fiction.
Written pieces will be inspired by our class read, our learning project work or from events that happen in school or in the news.
The children will continue to learn the spelling rules and will be given weekly spelling practice tests.
The children will learn some of the complex ‘rules’ of grammar.

 

Mathematics

 

The children will continue to develop their knowledge of place value, arithmetic, shape, measures and statistics.
New concepts – pie charts, algebra, developing a deep understanding of the relationship between fractions, decimals and percentages, and ratio.

 

Science


Living things and their habitats – classification
Inheritance and evolution
Electricity
Light
Animals including humans – the circulatory system

Learning Project

Learning projects – a new approach to our topic work

 

Three projects: The Vikings – history

       Custodians of Planet Earth – geography

       Music through the ages – creative

 

Each topic will also be viewed through the perspective of a philosophical

question. In the case of the Vikings this will be ‘Are invaders always mean?’

 

PSHE will also be weaved into each project. For example, in our work on the

Vikings we will explore the concepts of fear and pride.
