Year 6


In year 6, as we prepare for our end of KS2 assessment, we have begun to revisit past areas of our learning.

In English, we started off looking at poetry and combined it with our developing knowledge of adverbials as well as synonyms. Moving forwards, the children are working on writing their own discussion and explanation texts as they consider how to best appeal to their target audience.

In maths the children are working through place value to support their mental calculation as well as written strategies. Looking beyond, we will be recapping multiples, factors and primes before progressing to developing our understanding over fractions, decimals and percentages.

In Science we are investigating and exploring light. We are building our understanding of light and it’s behaviour whilst also investigating the effect it has over shadows before we explain the science behind this.

In PE, we are currently engaging in dance as we piece together a routine centred around a natural disaster taking place. Simultaneously, we are developing our skill and abilities within indoor athletics as we look to earn new personal bests within a variety of events.
