Long Term Curriculum Summary - a quick overview of all our learning in Year 6 for the year.

Summer Term overview of our learning

Welcome back!


We would like to take this opportunity to say hello and a big welcome back to the year group. We have many exciting things planned for the year and hope your children will share these experiences with you on a regular basis.



In Year 6 this year, our Geography & History topics will be:

Autumn: Victorians (History) Earthquakes (Geography)
Spring:  WW2 (History) Italy (Geography)
Summer: Windrush generation (History) Globalisation (Geography)


Times Tables
The expectation is that the children will be fluent in their recall of the times tables facts up to 12 x 12 and the  corresponding division facts. Regular practise and review helps keep skills sharp.


There are many different ways of learning these such as web-based games, like TTRockstars, and in a rote format. Find a way that works for your child. Please ask if you'd like some resources or ideas!

We love to keep you up to date with what we are doing in class and you will find regular updates on our Class Dojo page.  If you wish to speak to your child’s class teacher, please make an appointment via the school office or through Class Dojo.


We are looking forward to a fantastic year and thank you in advance for all the support you give to your child’s learning smiley


On PE days, children are encouraged to come to school in their PE kit.

Please see the school uniform policy for more information on kit

During our Science topic Earth in Space our learning of the eight phases of the moon lead us to sampling Oreo cookies. Whilst making the cookie cream resemble waxing and waning moons, along with the crescent and gibbous phases too we managed to map out an entire month of what our only natural satellite looks like in the night sky.

We have enjoyed our class novel ‘Floodlands’ by Marcus Sedgwick and have created gothic poems inspired by the cathedral in the story. We have been so impressed with their vocabulary and eerie illustrations.

Our trip to the Tithe Barn for a WW2 experience.

We have loved working on our palindrome poems based on ‘Refugees’ by Brian Bilston!

Thank you WOWSA for the gift of reading 🥰

Our Moving Vehicles DT projects look fabulous! We created seismographs to measure earthquakes which linked brilliantly to our geography topic this term.

We are so proud of our gothic novels based on the amazing book ‘The Wind in the Wall’. We loved writing these so much that we published them and made them in to an actual book.

DT experience day

Reading for pleasure 📚 We love reading! Quite often we have wonderful chats where we share what is happening in our story or someone will share a moment in their book where they don't to put their book down! Every Wednesday, we answer a question and we can apply it to any book we have ever read. Some brilliant suggestions come out of our discussions and lots of recommendations for books to read. Most recently we discussed what advice we would give a character in a book

Our first learning journey this term has been linked to the story 'The Fox and the Star' by Coralie Bickford-Smith. We explored the story and then created our own versions called 'The Star and the Fox'. The children worked so hard and we were so impressed with their vocabulary and speech. We love their background illustrations and water colours too!

Spelling - Year 5 and 6 Common Exception Words. Can your child confidently spell these words?
