Spelling we will follow a Y6 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.

We will also continue to revise and learn new Grammar and Punctuation terminology in preparation for SATs!




In Science this term we will be learning about:

Living things and their habitats

Pupils should be taught to:

  • describe how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including micro-organisms, plants and animals
  • give reasons for classifying plants and animals based on specific characteristics

Animals including humans

Pupils should be taught to:

  • identify and name the main parts of the human circulatory system, and describe the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood
  • recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way their bodies function
  • describe the ways in which nutrients and water are transported within animals, including humans


Throughout the term we will carry out investigations 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.




We will RECAP firstly this term- looking at gaps from Y5 learning and revisit areas we still have misconceptions with. We will incorporate the Y6 curriculum when we are ready to do so. Aswell as this, we will continue to embed our knowledge of times tables and related division facts.
