Countdown to SATs has begun now! Year 6 are working really hard and we are really proud of the progress they have made.
Year 6 Curriculum
This term we have been learning about the Ancient Maya Civilisations and have carried out many exciting activities. We have visited Cadbury's World to learn about the origins of Cacoa, learnt about houses and building that they lived in and have made a model of a Mayan temple. During this next half term, we will be making Mayan masks and learning about their lifestyles.
We will be writing a variety of fiction and non-fiction pieces to gather evidence for our writing portfolio. We will be starting off with reading the book 'Skellig' and will be exploring the techniques authors use to create tension in their writing.
We have increased the amount of reading we do across the curriculum to make sure that we have had lots of practice at showing our understanding of a range of texts. We are also making sure that we increase an improve our knowledge of vocabulary and language in line with the year 6 expectations.
We are moving to small focussed groups and will be consolidating our knowledge of the four operations (+, -, x, ÷), fractions, decimals and percentages, shape and space, position and direction and statistics. We are using and applying these in a range of real-life situations and word problems.
