Welcome to Year 6! As we approach the end of KS2, we strive for high standards in learning, progress, and achievement, whilst ensuring the year is engaging and memorable for all. We aim to inspire curiosity, resilience, and a love of learning that will follow children as they embark on the next step of their academic journey into secondary school.

Here, you can find an overview of the Year 6 Curriculum. You can use this information to discuss with your child what they have learned and continue to support their learning at home.


What’s happening this half-term?

This half term:


Plotting coordinates in all four quadrants.

Translating and reflecting shapes.

Calculating missing angles in a variety of shapes.

Revising key topics ready for SATs.


For the first four weeks we will be revising for SATS, this will include: practising reading comprehensions and techniques for answering questions, revising grammar, spelling and punctuation topics.

During the half term we will read Welcome to Nowhere and in the last week we will use the events in the story and work we have completed already this year to write a letter as one of the characters and write part of the story from the perspective of another character.

Did Early Islam influence Britain Today? We will identify when in history Early Islam was and which other civilisations were at the same time. We will place key events from Early Islam chronologically. We will identify where in the world Early Islam occurred and why Baghdad was an important city. We will also look at the achievements of this civilisation.

Changes to materials, Focus: Dissolving, Reactions and Separation. We will learn that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution. We will use our knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated, including through filtering, sieving and evaporating. We will demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes. We will 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.
