Welcome to the Year 6 homepage. Year 6 is one of the most exciting years and we have a lot to look forward to. In this final year, we will be working hard together to get ourselves ready for the transition to secondary school. Alongside all the hard work, we can also look forward to the Christmas production, Shakespeare and school journey!

Spring 1

The Spring term will start with a geography focus on the Americas. The children will learn about the different countries that can be found in the continents and will be looking at the physical features, human features, climate zones and biomes in different regions.

In Science, we will be learning about how living things are classified into different groups; we will create our own classification keys, classify different living things and learn about the Linnaean classification system.

Spring term is Shakespeare term! This year, Holy Trinity will be exploring The Tempest. The play is set on an Island near Italy and is about magic, love, betrayal and forgiveness. The Tempest will inspire all writing from week 4 onwards and the children will be producing different types of writing based on the characters and events in the play. Year 6 will also be auditioning and working hard in drama to prepare for their Shakespeare performance!

In Maths we will be working hard on revising our arithmetic skills, fractions, decimals and percentages, geometry and measurement.

In Art we will be exploring art that is linked to the Americas. We will also be doing lots of work inspired by The Tempest.

In RE our Christian value focus is Endurance and we will be learning about Hindu religion.

In Character and Wellbeing we will be exploring the theme of Courage and what that looks like everyday.

Autumn

Year 6 are starting the year by learning about the effects of World War 2 on Britain. Our core text is Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo which we will use to inspire our writing. During the Autumn term, we will be writing non-chronological reports, letters,  diary entries, poetry, story writing and balanced arguments based on the our chosen core texts and also linking to the upcoming Christmas production and Black History Month.

In Maths, the children will consolidate their understanding of place value and learn how this helps them to read, write and compare large whole numbers and decimal numbers.  They will learn how to partition and combine numbers in different ways, which will expand their repertoire of calculation methods. They will further develop their understanding of fractions and continue to build on their skills in using the four operations to solve problems.

In Science our focus is ‘Light’. The children will be learning about shadows, how we see, how light is reflected and the phenomena of refraction through exploring, observing and conducting investigations.

In RE, we will be learning about the practices of Judaism and what it means to be a Jew. We will learn about the Mezuzah, the festival of Passover and the ten commandments.
