Year 6

Autumn Term

In Literacy this term, Year 6 will be reading ‘Trash’ by Andy Mulligan and ‘Once’ by Morris Gleitzman. The children will be writing recounts, poetry, stories, newspaper articles, debates, advertisements and journals. Your children will need to read their AR books for at least 30 minutes every day (sometimes aloud to you) and practise spellings that are sent home weekly.

In Maths this term, Year 6 will be revising the four operations and exploring word problems linked with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The children will be involved in skill review sessions, where individual needs will be addressed. The children will also be learning about percentages, fractions and decimals, and real-life problem solving and reasoning. Please ensure that your child continues to regularly practise their times tables and how these facts link to division. Every child has a Mathletics username and login. These should be used daily

In Science this term, Year 6 will be exploring ‘Animals Including Humans’, learning about the circulatory and digestive systems in the human body. The children will then be looking at Health and Wellbeing and how healthy lifestyle choices can impact their health in a positive way. 

In Topic this term, Year 6 will be exploring the idea of Greenwich as a holiday destination, linking the themes of cities across the world and the impact of tourism in literacy. The children will explore social history of the 20th and 21st centuries; looking at major events across the world which shaped history and our society today.
