Spring Term is a very exciting time in Year 6. There is plenty to get our teeth into as we develop the skills we have been learning throughout the Autumn Term.

Our writing takes a non-fiction turn as we delve into Wallace and Gromit’s Cracking Contraptions. We will move onto narrative writing after and finish with a non-fiction text linking to our Humanities. Whole Class Reading will align to support this, using VIPERS to unpick a wide variety of specifically chosen fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts. 

Our Humanities lessons will have a focus on Geography and Extreme Earth. Understanding the Earth is incredibly important and will support learning in Year 7 onwards. 

Power Maths has seen a successful start in Autumn. Fractions will continue before moving on to Geometry, Decimals and Percentages. Maths Talk will be used to find patterns and links within mathematical understanding, supporting Arithmetic and Reasoning. 

RE covers Community and how the Bible is the written word of the Holy Spirit, teaching and guiding as Jesus taught. We then look at Unity and how human’s attitude can combine, aiming for the greater good. 

In Science, we will finish our Electricity and then move onto learning about Light, building on our physics from Learning in Year 4. 

Being aware of our bodies, health and safety is also an important area of learning that we continue in our RSE, Computing and PSHE.
