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...
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.
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.
Living things and their habitats – classification
Inheritance and evolution
Animals including humans – the circulatory system
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.
What are some of the things we have learnt this week?
