This page will give you all the relevant information you need to find out about Year 6.

During this topic, children will learn about major discoveries in electricity and will be given the opportunity to observe and explain the effects of differing volts within a circuit. 

Furthermore, we will practically explore relationships between different components within a circuit. 


Maths:

In Maths, we will be focusing on place value and number. Children will be learning / revising the four operations and place value in a range of thought provoking ways. 

Children will also get the opportunity to enjoy the competitive element of our 99 club which requires rapid recall of known number facts. They will also be revising daily their arithmetic methods with our Fluent in Five.

We are working hard to develop our reading and writing skills. As part of our Literacy sessions, we will be completing some exciting pieces of creative writing which the children will then self edit and present. In reading, we will be examining a range of texts and focusing on different ways to extract information.
