Your child’s journey through Year 6
Autumn Term Home Learning
We understand that there may be times where you need to isolate at home. In order to help you keep learning, we have created a home-learning plan for the Autumn term.
Our learning letter can be found here: Year 6 Autumn Term Home Learning Letter
Maths Home Learning
This term’s learning is on number, addition, subtraction and multiplication. To support this learning at home, we have attached White Rose activity sheets and the associated video. Listen and watch the video before you complete the activity. There’s no need for a printer, you can copy out the questions onto a sheet of paper.

We have also attached links to additional challenges that support Year 6 maths curriculum. The challenges are designed to support children in revising skills, while deepening and strengthening maths skills to a mastery level.
Some questions may require a lot of trial and improvement. It may not be right first time. That’s ok. It is important to keep trying!

Autumn Term 2020
Our topic this term is called All Change and has an historical focus on The Tudors and the Reformation. Unfortunately, we are unable to undertake any school trips this term, however we are exploring creative ways to enrich the curriculum as much as possible.
Please note: in Maths, our learning will focus on number and place value. It is imperative that your child knows all their multiplication tables up to 12 x 12 and the related division facts. This is essential for children to be able to move on to fractions, decimals and percentages. Please talk to us if you need ideas for supporting your child with this.

Spring Term 2020
We are looking forward to the new term of learning in Year 6. Our new topic is Explorers and has geography and science focus. We will begin by learning about polar exploration, particularly expeditions to the Antarctic. Our Literacy learning will be based around ‘ICE TRAP!’ which is the story of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s incredible expedition to this continent. In Geography, we will be developing map skills, using atlases and interpreting aerial photographs and satellite images to understand the polar regions and particular aspects of environmental change.
In Science, we will look at how animals have adapted to their environment and how this has led to evolution. We will be going on two curriculum-linked trips this term to support this learning.
Please note: in Maths, our learning will focus on fractions, decimals and percentages this half term. It is important that your child knows their multiplication tables and the related division facts. Please talk to us if you need ideas for supporting your child with this.
