Autumn Term 2017

Welcome to Year 6!

This half term, our English unit is based around poetry, particularly older poems. It features many opportunities for writing such as stories, diary entries and biographies - as well as writing some poems. We will also challenge the children to memorise one of the older poems. After the half term break, we will be studying a novel set in WWII and learning about key events of the war. Our maths will vary by set and weekly homework will follow the topic studied in class; times tables and written arithmetic will be checked weekly.

In science we are learning about classification of living organisms and through the IPC we are studying AD900 - learning what this era was like in several locations around the world.

PE, Music, ICT and French will be taught separately by each Y6 teacher and sports coaches, so your child will be taught by every teacher in the year group.

We are looking forward to a visit from a Mayan chief in October to help us learn more about this time in history.

Curriculum overview

We started using the International Primary Curriculum in September 2016. You can find more details of it on the Curriculum and Subject pages on the menu to the left. At the beginning of every unit of study we will be sending out a letter to parents that explains the sort of things that are being covered in the unit. Copies of these letters are available from the links below, as well as an overview for this year group.
