Y6 Curriculum overview - Summer 1
Mr Smith, Miss Pickering & Mrs McQuade
A warm welcome back to school to all Y6 pupils for the start of an exciting new term.
To begin with this term, Y6 pupils will be preparing for their SATs, with particular focus on grammar revision and comprehension skills. The children will be doing revisions before their SATs start throughout their English lessons. Once SATs have finished, we are starting a new book called 'Floodland'. They will be completing a variety of writing activities such as letter writing, diary writing, descriptive writing and uses of dialogue to showcase the different elements of the book.
In Maths, the children, will focus on mental and written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The children will also be focusing on fractions, decimals, percentages, ratio & proportion including real life reasoning problems.
The pupils will be revising for their Maths SAT tests; putting their revision into practice by completing various examples of test question types. Once SATs are over, the children will be taking part in challenges and quests to keep their Maths brain engaged.
Science this term will focus on electricity as the pupils learn what components make a circuit and how a circuit works.
History this term will focus on Ancient Greece. We will recap the other civilisations, when, where and what they entailed before doing an in depth study of Ancient Greece.
Computing this term will involve game developing. We will build on the skills taught during coding and programming and put them into practice in order to create a game.
P.E will include OAA (Outdoor Adventurous Activities) which will be taught by Team Theme. Alongside this, the children will be looking at skills linked to athletics.
R.E this term will focus on Buddhism and how Buddhist live their lives.
PSHE will include children looking at their health and well-being and how we can look after it.
P.E is on a Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure your child has appropriate kit on those days.
Home reading is still encouraged every night to allow the children to keep building on their vocabulary.
