Our Learning






We will write Instructions and a Fantasy narrative as well as other pieces in preparation for Year 6 Writing assessment.

We will read Shaun Tan's 'Tales from Outer Suburbia'.

We will also revise previous-SPAG ( Spelling, grammar and punctuation work) and re-cap on test strategies in reading in preparation for the SATS tests.


Tales From Outer Suburbia: Amazon.co.uk ...

Spelling we will follow the Y6 spelling scheme from Twinkl- which focuses on statutory vocabulary as well as spelling rules and patterns. 

We will practise writing at the expected standard - you can see what your child needs to include in their writing to reach the expected standard or beyond by clicking here.

We will develop our reading skills - to practise using inference, summarising and prediction- using a whole class book as well as our SATs book texts.




In Science this term we will be learning about:





Earth and space  (CONTINUED FROM SPRING)

Pupils should be taught to:

  • describe the movement of the Earth and other planets relative to the sun in the solar system
  • describe the movement of the moon relative to the Earth
  • describe the sun, Earth and moon as approximately spherical bodies
  • use the idea of the Earth’s rotation to explain day and night and the apparent movement of the sun across the sky


 Pupils should be taught to: 

  • explain that unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity acting between the Earth and the falling object 
  • identify the effects of air resistance, water resistance and friction, that act between moving surfaces 
  • recognise that some mechanisms, including levers, pulleys and gears, allow a smaller force to have a greater effect.

Properties and changes of materials

Pupils should be taught to: 

  • compare and group together everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including their hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity (electrical and thermal), and response to magnets
  •  know that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution
  •  use knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated, including through filtering, sieving and evaporating 
  • give reasons, based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, for the particular uses of everyday materials, including metals, wood and plastic  
  • demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes 
  • explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials, and that this kind of change is not usually reversible, including changes associated with burning and the action of acid on bicarbonate of soda.




maths title

In the SUMMER TERM, we will follow White Rose Maths planning as well as revise some skills that need repeating from Spring learning.

We will spend time before SATS re-capping facts and methods as well as all arithmetic skills we have learned this year.


Units to be covered:






We will have regular Arithmetic and X Table checks to monitor progress with the new content taught.

                         Below is the Medium Term Plan for Y6!






Foundation Subjects

In History this term, we will learn all about the

Peterloo Massacre!

Geograpghy lessons will focus on Fieldwork technique.

We will develop skills in rounders and athltics in PE.

Please see our MEDIUM TERM PLANS  to find out about our other foundation subject learning this term! 

Throughout the term we will carry out investigations in Science lessons to develop our scientific skills further and apply what we have learned.

Sc5/1    Working Scientifically

During years 5 and 6, pupils should be taught to use the following practical scientific methods, processes and skills through the teaching of the programme of study content:

Sc5/1.1    planning different types of scientific enquiries to answer questions, including recognising and controlling variables where necessary

Sc5/1.2    taking measurements, using a range of scientific equipment, with increasing accuracy and precision

Sc5/1.3    recording data and results of increasing complexity using scientific diagrams and labels, classification keys, tables, and bar and line graphs

Sc5/1.4    using test results to make predictions to set up further comparative and fair tests

Sc5/1.5    reporting and presenting findings from enquiries, including conclusions, causal relationships and explanations of results, in oral and written forms such as displays and other presentations

Sc5/1.6    identifying scientific evidence that has been used to support or refute ideas or arguments.
