Welcome to the Year 6 page!

We are keen to share information about our topics and what we will be learning across the curriculum. Below are links to our current topic overview sheet and our curriculum overview for the term. If you would like more detail about your child’s learning, please come and talk to your child’s class teacher.  The final year of primary school is hugely important for children as they prepare to transition to secondary school.  The approach to teaching, learning and homework is designed to enable children to build their independence and reflect this.  Reading regularly at home is still vitally important for children in year 6 as they continue to expand their vocabulary and understanding of the impact on the reader an author’s choices can have.  Specific reading comprehension skills are taught in lessons throughout the year and will help children to improve their skills of speed reading, retrieval, inference and understanding of an author’s intent. Children will continue to practice their times tables as having a rapid, accurate recall of the times tables is a fundamental skill required across the maths curriculum.  Children will continue to practice in school using TT Rockstars. In addition to the different spelling rules taught in school, children in years 5 & 6 are expected to be able to spell words from the list below.  Again, these will be taught in school.

Home Learning

Children should read a minimum of 3 times a week and record this in their home school diaries. Each week, children will be given a page of reading comprehension, SPaG and Maths from their books. We also encourage all children to log on to TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed as much as possible.
