Year 6 Topics

Year Six will start this academic year learning with our WOW trip and then after half term we will learn about the Ancient Greeks and how this period of time has influenced us today. This will be followed by our World War 2 topic in the Spring Term. We will learn why, when and how World War 2 started, learn about Anne Frank and read parts of her diary and also learn what life was like for British people during this period of time. We will also be reading 'Goodnight Mr Tom' alongside the topic to support the learning in our topic.  We will finish the year with the Mountains High, River Deep topic, studying a mapping unit of work which links in very well with our residential trip to Lakeside. The children will be studying areas of the UK, learning how to read 4 figure and 6 figure grid references and looking at different mountains and lakes in the UK. 



Throughout the Autumn term, the children will be given both a Maths and an English piece of homework every week and spellings to review every 2 weeks. The expectation is that the children take the homework home on a Monday and bring it back the following Monday to mark in class in order for them to see their misconceptions right away and are able to address these with the teacher. 


During the Spring term, the children will be given Maths, Grammar and Reading CGP books in which they will be told weekly which pages they must complete. They must continue bringing these in on a Monday to mark in class. 


In addition to this set homework, each week your child should try to read daily and have their reading record books signed.
