Year 6 2020 - 2021

Mr Wilde



During the Autumn Term, in Y6, some of our work will be inspired by the theme of 'Keep Calm & Carry On!' The children will be learning about how war changed the lives of men and women, how air raids and evacuation effected Britain at the time and who the key historical figures were in the war.

Also this term, in English, we will be focussing on writing instructions about what to do if you are evacuated ; we will also be writing our own setting descriptions and recounts. In Mathematics, the children will be working on a variety of calculation methods - especially long multiplication and long division. We will also be looking at different types of fractions, and how to solve problems involving them. The children will be participating in a range of invasion games in P.E, as well as learning about Electricity and Light in Science.
