Reading and Writing
In reading Year 6 will study a range of genre types. We will build on our skills for comprehension. Year 6 will be revising a variety of genres and learning how to answer questions on texts. We will link our texts to the contexts we are studying in writing.
To link with our literary heritage, we will study extracts from The Hobbit and The Savage.
In writing Year 6 will be focussing on our sentence and text structure. We will develop our use of punctuation and learn to build cohesion across a range of contexts. Spelling, grammar and punctuation will be taught daily.
In maths we will be learning about number and place value, written methods for all four operations, fractions, decimals and percentages, geometry, measures and algebra. We will be applying our skills to word problems and maths investigations. Year 6 will be revising the knowledge they need for SATs, mental maths skills and investigations.
