Our Learning



We will focus on Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief for most of our English work this term. We will read chapters and respond with various SPAG and written work.

We will also complete many sessions to improve our punctuation and use of grammatical structures in our writing- improving proofreading skills in order to correct and improve our work independently.

You can see our Medium term plan by clicking the image below.

We will also complete additional pieces of writing for assessment!


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:
