Welcome to Year 6

 

Here you will find information about our curriculum for the year and more detailed curriculum maps for each half term. A timetable will show you what subjects the children participate in throughout the week.

In Year 6, we work very closely as a team to create an exciting broad curriculum. When planning lessons, we use the children’s previous knowledge, experiences and interests to motivate, challenge and engage them.

Core texts used in English are carefully considered to cover a broad range of literature.

Maths lesson are taught with a mastery approach where children are encouraged to gain a deeper understanding of concepts through reasoning & problem solving task.
