We made it to 2020 and although we have moved forward a year (and a new decade!) we will be Time Travellers this term as we investigate the Kingdom of Benin and then World War II. We will be looking closely at timelines and key events of these specific points in history and we will compare what was happening around the world during these times. Our learning on Benin will try to encompass the culture, art and history of the Kingdom, before we move on to the causes and consequences of WWII. Shelter building will play a key part of our learning about the Second World War.
For Science, we will be considering the history and the future of living things as we explore Inheritance and Evolution. After the Easter break we will begin a topic of Electricity and begin to create circuits using a range of electrical components. Our RE topics include Islam (Hajj and Eid-Ul-Adha) and Christianity (Lent and Easter), whilst in ICT we utilise Excel to build Spreadsheets and handle data.

To support your child with their reading is really important and it will help them to make progress across the curriculum. When we read books we extend our vocabulary, we gain greater understanding of the world we live in and it encourages us to use new themes and ideas in our writing.
Here are two great reading lists for Year 6 children, take a look and see if you find these books in your local library, or at school:
We also held a reading workshop for parents recently. Here are the presentation slides:
Each Friday there will be directed home learning for each child to complete by the following Friday.
The purpose of this home learning is to support each child’s progress in key skills for Year 6, whilst also preparing them for the increased work load they will experience in secondary school next year. This home learning is to go alongside IXL and Times Table Rockstars that the school is subscribed to.
A paper copy will always be available to take home, but to minimise paper wastage we are encouraging children to access the home learning from the school website if possible.
Teacher Assessment Frameworks
These statutory frameworks are used only to make a teacher assessment judgement at the end of the key stage.
You can download sample SATs papers, which are useful for preparing for the tests from satspapers.org.
Our curriculum overviews gives you an idea of which topic your child will be studying at which point during the school year.
