Our literacy will be around Narrative writing and active reading. We will be developing skills in writing engaging short stories with a clear structure. We will also be examining ways authors use language and sentence structure to create mood and atmosphere, with a view to adding this to our own writing. We will also work on a transition unit which will be forwarded on to secondary schools.

In maths we will be continuing to develop problem solving skills through completing and creating maths investigations

Our science topic will focus on evolution and inheritance along with the impact of lifestyle, diet and exercise on the human body.

Our History focus will be on a study of local history and how the area has changed, developed over time.

We have lots of exciting activities in store, including Suntrap camp, production and an end of year disco (to name but a few) - please check the website or app calendar for date details.

Year 6 will be developing athletics skills and will use skills developed over the year to participate in year group games.
