Welcome to Year 6
We are a hardworking and vibrant Year 6 class. Our class teachers are Mrs Peverall & Mrs Kidd and we are supported in class by Mrs Rowntree.
Our Curriculum and Learning
In Year 6, we focus on a different topic each half term. This topic will create an overarching theme to our learning in other subjects. We will begin each topic with a ‘hook’ lesson to trigger our imaginations and leave us ready to learn more! Topic work allows the children to make links between subjects and gain a deeper understanding.

Our English work is taught using a class novel. We enjoy reading our novel everyday during our daily story time. Story time gives us the chance to simply enjoy listening to a story which we then discuss the next day.
Our comprehension and writing tasks link to our novels and we complete a range of writing genre in our lessons. Our reading lessons also focus on developing our skills linked to our film clips, images and we use Reading VIPERS to help us with this.

As we begin Year 6, we will be taking time to revisit our learning from Year 5 as well as developing our understanding of the topics we missed in the summer term.
Over the course of the year, we will be developing our knowledge and understanding of fluency, reasoning and problem solving. Our learning will be divided in to blocks to allow the children to gain a secure understanding of the key skills and vocabulary needed to progress.

Our Topic Work
We begin the year exploring our topic ‘It’s Electric’. This topic allows the children to learn more about the theme of Electricity in Science alongside other subjects. We will be reading a novel linked to the theme of Electricity and using this to inspire our writing. Our Design and Technology work will link to our main theme as we design and produce our own products.
We begin the second half of the Autumn term with our topic ‘Shine Bright’. During this topic, the children will continue to develop their reading and writing skills through our novel ‘Blitz’. We will learn about light and how we see thanks to our amazing eyes in Science and the events of World War Two in Humanities. Our Creativity lessons will allow us to explore the artists who were influenced by World War Two in their work.
The Circle of Life
We begin the Spring term exploring our topic ‘The Circle of Life’. During this topic the children will learn about the classification of animals and plants, habitats and adaptation in Science. We will be linking our Science work to our Design and Technology lessons by creating habitats and animals which meet given criteria. We will be reading a novel linked to the theme of animals and using this to inspire our writing. Our Humanities work will be based on Geography this half term where we will learn about various physical geography features including climate zones, biomes and earthquakes.
This is me!
During the second half of the Spring term, the children will be learning more about themselves! We will be finding out how the circulatory system and heart work in Science and then we will learn about healthy lifestyles and how to take care of our bodies. The children will also be learning about the changes in medicine since World War Two during our Humanities work. During our Creativity lessons, the children will be developing their drawing techniques and skills as they learn about self portraits.
We begin the Summer term with a topic which will see us through to the end of term. The children will be learning about Evolution and Inheritance in Science thinking about adaptation and survival for plants and animals. We will be learning about the changes in land use since the end of World War Two for our local area and trying to find evidence of why these changes have taken place. In History, we will be learning about the changes in leisure and entertainment linked to holidays since World War Two. The children will be developing their understanding of the changes in art and food since World War Two thinking about the different decades which have gone by.
We have changed our usual homework for the Autumn term in Year 6 to support the children returning to school. Our homework will focus on revisiting and revising key skills in reading, writing and maths to support the children in their classwork.
Homework will be introduced to the children over the coming weeks and they will be set two task per week – one English based and one Maths based. These will be completed at home and reviewed in school together as a class.
Summer term homework
The children will be completing a challenge grid for their homework. They are given a suggested table of activities to complete linked to our class work which are worth different amounts of Dojos depending on what is involved in the task. The children share their work with the class every week.
Our class newsletters are sent home via email every half term and shared on our closed class Facebook page. The newsletter will share important information about what we are learning in class and share any upcoming events.
