Yearly overview

Autumn

We will explore areas of learning with a focus on reading and writing narrative and speaking and listening activities based around ‘Little Red Riding Hood’.  This will include studying animals and habitats found in woodlands and will visit our local woods using map skills to explore and make observations.  This will be followed by a topic about the Egyptians with a historical enquiry.  Our writing will include non-chronological reports about animals and an Egyptian quest story.

Spring

In the Spring Term our topic is called ‘Living in America’ and we will be exploring the geography of both North and South America.  We will examine how the lives of people living there are affected by human and physical factors and follow an enquiry around the wonder of the Galapagos Islands, their discovery and creation.  Our narrative, ‘Jungle Story’ and discussion text, ‘Holiday in the UK’ will link to this.  Science topics will involve studies about evolution and animal adaptations.  We will begin preparations for the SATs tests in May and will be visiting the Houses of Parliament.

Summer

We will be learning about ‘The Great Outdoors’ through exploration of the natural environment and all it has to offer on a local, national and international scale.  We will consider how we interact with our environment and the impact this can have.  The science of light and sight will also be covered along with the Human Body, exercise and sex and drug education.

During the first half of the Summer Term, Year 6 pupils will take their SATs tests.  More details will follow throughout the school year.  Year 6 School Journey and the Leavers Production will take place in the second half of the Summer Term.
