In Year 6, our topic is ‘Explorers and Adventurers’. We will be using two texts by Katherine Rundell to support our learning: ‘The Wolf Wilder’ and ‘The Explorer’. We will explore how to create atmosphere through our writing, how repetition impacts the reader and how the author's use of vocabulary catches the reader’s interest. The children will also be writing chronological and non-chronological reports about catastrophes. In Grammar, the children will be looking at modal verbs and relative clauses.
In Mathematics, the Year 6 we will be consolidating and extending our calculating knowledge for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also be learning about factors, multiples, common factors, common multiples and prime numbers.
In Science we will be learning about living things and their habitats, including how to classify plants and animals and the characteristics of vertebrate and invertebrate animals.
In Geography, we will be learning about the countries of North America and South America, longitude, latitude and different climate zones. We will also be learning about deforestation and biodiversity.
If you have any further questions about the content of the Year 6 curriculum please contact the Year 6 Team Leader, Ms Haigh, who will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
