Curriculum Information – Spring 2 2019/2020



This half-term we will be immersing ourselves in the book ‘Pax’ by Sara Pennypacker. During our reading we will be focusing on the VIPER skills that help us become better readers.


Our writing focus will be narratives (stories). We will be using a range of texts and video clips as a stimulus for writing, Our targets will be:


We will be revising many features of SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar). This will include word classes, punctuation, sentence types and conjunctions in revision for our SAT tests in May.


The children will be enhancing their skills in geometry, shape, place value, the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and beginning to extend their knowledge of fractions this half-term.


This half-term, we will be focusing on a Science topic. The topic is ‘Evolution and Inheritence’. In this topic the children will learn about how animals adapt to their environments, survival of the fittest and they will learn about fossils and dinosaurs.


We will be learning about how different faiths interpret ‘Values’. We will find out what values are for different faiths (Christian, Muslim & Humanist) and identify how they are similar and different.


During this half term, Year 6’s topic will be, ‘Relationships’. This will include some work on making and maintaining happy friendships and how we can treat each other kindly. 


PE will usually take place on a Tuesday afternoon, however we would advise that the children have their PE kit with them every day. Please ensure that your child brings their kit on a Monday and takes it home to be washed on a Friday.


Homework will be sent out on a Thursday to be returned by the following Tuesday at the latest. There may be some additional writing and handwriting homework sent home for those who need it.

Children should also ensure that they read and complete their reading journals every day. We would recommend that they read to an adult or older sibling at least twice a week and feedback can be given in the space in the learning journals.

Continuing reading – It is vital that children in Year 6 continue to read at home regularly. Reading books should be taken home from school and changed on a regular basis.
