Year 6 Curriculum Overview
In Year 6 this term, we are continuing to learn how to read and write a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry, including information texts. As well as the texts we will be looking at in our reading lessons, we’ll also be reading class novels which this term will be Cogheart by Peter Bunzl and The Boy in the Tower by Polly Ho-Yen, both are fantastic books!
In mathematics, we’re focusing on: angles, fractions, measure, ratio, percentages and different types of charts and graphs. We welcome all the support you are able to give your child at home, but would like to ensure that you help your child by continuing the methods they are being taught in school. If you would like to know the methods your child is being taught, please do not hesitate to come into school and ask.
This term, Gingko and Ebony classes will be leading an assembly: this will highlight all the hard work that they have been doing throughout the year. We are looking forward to them having the opportunity to share how they have learnt to embrace new challenges this year and be the best that they can be.
In science we will be studying Animals, including Humans and Evolution and Inheritance; in history, we will be learning about The Industrial Revolution and in geography the children are studying the impact that humans are having on our planet. Please encourage your child to read about these topics at the library or complete online research – remember that the children can borrow two books at a time from the Active Learning Library.
Many thanks for all the support you give your child. It is very important that we continue to work in partnership with you to ensure they make the most of their learning opportunities. We expect your child to continue to be in school on time, with their homework completed, and having read for at least sixty minutes the previous night.
If you have any concerns or worries during the term, please arrange a time with the school office to meet with your child’s teacher or send an email to the class email address. We hope that your child’s last term at Penn Wood is full and enjoyable and look forward to seeing you (either virtually or in person) at various points this term.
