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.
