What to Expect in Year Six
In Literacy, we will be practising our spelling, punctuation and grammar in preparation for our SATs test. Some of the key skills being covered will include different tense structures (including simple past and present, progressive tenses and the perfect tense). We will be refining out knowledge of word classification which will include determiners and relative and personal pronouns. In the last week of the half-term, we will be practising our poetry skills in performing to others.
In Numeracy, we are continuing to practise the basic skills to enable us to be problem solvers and especially focusing on being fully conversant with written methods for all four operations. We will delve deeper into parts of number and fully understand fractions, decimals and percentages and the relationship between these representations. In addition, we will look at measurement conversions in mass, capacity and height and relate these to real-life problems. There will be further revision on other key mathematical concepts such as shape and time problems.
Finally, in Science we will be continuing our work on classification, learning all about plants and animals and the different ways they can be grouped.
In topic during the first half of Summer Term, we will be journeying back to the glorious time of the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings through our topic: Rule Britannia.
