Autumn Term 2022

We are very pleased with the wonderful start Y6 pupils have made to the new academic year, settling into their new learning environments responsibly. We are very much looking forward to the year ahead.   

This term our DPC topic is AD900 - focusing on a study of the Mayan civilisation. We will cover the history of the Maya, using information about the buildings and artefacts they left behind to examine how they lived their daily lives. In Art and D&T, we will create Mayan tiles and masks, utilising different media. 

Our science topics this term are Classification and Light; we will be carrying out different practical activities and investigations during these units. We are also hoping to visit Coventry Cathedral this term, both to enhance our RE learning and also to learn more about how the cathedral was affected by World War 2.   

In English, we will be studying Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo, a classic novel set in World War 2. This book will inspire various pieces of writing such as diary entries, letters and narrative pieces. Each of the four English groups will also be studying a 'class reader' and using this to secure essential reading skills. In maths, we are focusing on place value, all four operations and fractions this term.   

PE will be taught on Fridays. We teach the ‘real PE’ programme with the aim to equip children with key essential abilities to maximise potential and long-term participation. During the course of the week, the children are taught by all the Y6 teachers, as each member of the team specialises in certain subjects to enhance our provision; this also helps to prepare them for KS3.
