2016-17 Year 6 Autumn Term Curriculum

 

Literacy

This term we will be reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, focussing heavily on reading aloud and fluently for an audience. Throughout the unit, children will study narrative structure and character development, producing their own narratives in the fantasy genre.

In guided reading, children will read a variety of texts, including narrative, poems, newspaper reports about current events and excerpts from classic and historical novels. Children will learn how to read the texts quickly and accurately and will answer written comprehension questions. This is in addition to their Accelerated Reader targets.

In Spelling and Grammar, the children will learn and apply a range of spelling rules and conventions and will work on varying their punctuation and sentence structure.

 

Maths

During the autumn term, we will be focussing on learning new arithmetic skills and embedding calculation skills from previous years. This will include learning to use written methods of calculation for all four operations, calculating percentages and adding and subtracting fractions. Children will learn the skill and then have opportunities to apply their calculating skills by solving problems in context.

 

Science

This term, children will explore how life on Earth has changed – and continues to change- over time. Children will learn about fossils, extinction, inheritance and evolution. The focus of the unit will be for children to explain a scientific theory and understand the evidence that underpins it.

 

Humanities

The autumn term will provide children with the opportunity to study the geography of rivers and the history of World War Two. In geography lessons, children will use maps and atlases to identify the location and features of rivers both in the UK and across the world. In history, children will read the novel ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’ and will make an educational visit to the Imperial War Museum North.

Art

The autumn term art topic in Year 6 is painting and will take place on a super learning art day in October.

 

PHSE

The autumn term PHSE topic in Year 6 is New Beginnings and will take place on a super learning art day in October.

 

Religious Education

The autumn term RE topic in Year 6 is ‘Why do some people believe God exists?’ and will take place on a super learning art day in October.

 

Computing

This term the children are learning to use Google Classroom to create Harry Potter themed interviews using Green Screen Technology.

Music

This half term, the children will use and understand staff notation as well as composing using Ostinato patterns and poly-rhythms.
