Term 1

We have produced 'Knowledge Organisers' for some of our projects this term.  You can find the links to them below. 

Please use these to revise key knowledge with your children at home.

 

English

In English, we will begin the term by revising some of our prior learning. We will focus on sentence structure (including simple, compound and complex sentence structures) and word classes. 

 

We will then begin a non-fiction unit about non-chronological reports. These report will be written about animals and how they have adapted to suit the environments within which they live.

 

Finally, we will finish the term with some suspense writing. We will use the local area as settings for our own spooky tales. 

 

 

Maths

Year 6

This term, we will be exploring numbers up to 10,000,000. We will begin by learning how to read and write these numbers. Then, we will learn about the place value of each digit and how we can use this information to order, compare, calculate and problem solve.
