TOPIC AND SCIENCE
Our topic is science based: it is called ‘How we see things“. We will be learning about how we see things. We will learn about how light travels, reflections and shadows through a range of investigations
In reading, Year 6 will be revising a variety of genres and learning how to answer questions on texts: including the text Macbeth. They will focus on comprehension skills in order to prepare for their SATs Tests.
In writing, Year 6 will be studying the text Macbeth. We will be learning to analyse a text and its themes. Inspired by the play, we will write narratives and descriptions, letters, raps and sonnets and many more. Spelling, grammar and punctuation will be taught daily. We will write biographies, instructions and play scripts.
In Maths, year 6 will be revising the knowledge they need for SATs, mental maths skills and investigations. We will be securing our methods and applying these to a variety of contexts.
