Year 6 - Aslan & Gryffindor




This half term our focus is on History and on the Battle of Britain which featured during World War II. The children will learn all about the build up to this iconic battle and this momentous moment in history. 



We will continue to read the text ‘The Boy in Striped Pyjamas’ by John Boyne while continuing to build core reading skills including vocabulary and word meaning in context, inference, prediction, retrieval and summary. We will also focus on three-mark questions using point, evidence, and explanation techniques (PEE). 


We will be writing a range of both formal and informal texts in a variety of genres linked to the World War II and our core text ‘The Boy in Striped Pyjamas’. We will build on our writing skills and become more cohesive and sophisticated writers, to produce texts that are engaging and appropriate for the intended audience. Children will write both fiction and non-fiction pieces of extended writing. 


We will be continuing to develop our number fluency as well as arithmetic and reasoning problem skills. Our main areas of learning will be fractions and percentages and consolidation of specific topics. SATS Assessment week will take place in week 4, to ascertain the children’s progress in accordance with national standard levels. 


We will study the human body: the circulatory system, functions of the digestive system transportation of water and nutrients, healthy lifestyles and diet, and the impact of drugs and alcohol. 


Children have a fortnightly DT and French/Spanish lessons on a Monday and a Tuesday. Specialist teachers teach these subjects. 


Lessons will continue to take place on Thursdays. Please ensure pupils have the correct PE kit each week. 


In Year 6, pupils will receive Literacy and Maths homework every Friday that must be handed in on Friday of the following week, which will be marked as a class. Please remind your child of the sanctions that are in place for non-completion of homework. In addition, pupils will be given a list of 10 spellings from the statutory spelling list each week, which they are expected to learn in preparation for a spelling test every Monday. 

Please continue to read regularly with your child at home, as reading regularly will help your child’s vocabulary knowledge, spelling and writing skills. Furthermore, we ask that you encourage your child to learn their multiplication tables up to 12. This is an ongoing expectation until your child can confidently recall them in a mixed order and using inverse operations. 


Year 6 pupils will continue be offered after school booster sessions run by year 6 staff in preparation for the SATS exams in May, and will resume swimming lessons in weeks 5 and 6 this half term.
