English

In Year 6, children learn to write in a variety of genres and revise styles including story writing, letter writing (formal and informal), journalistic and persuasive writing, chronological and non-chronological reports, diary writing, descriptive and explanation writing. We study and perform a play by Shakespeare and read a range of different novels by significant authors.

 

Children are expected to use a neat and legible handwriting style and ensure that words are spelled correctly.

 

Maths

In maths, children revise previous topics as well as learning more about:

  • fractions, decimals and percentages;
  • ratio and proportion;
  • probability;
  • shape, space and measures;
  • data handling.

Children consolidate, refine and develop further strategies of mental calculation, solving problems with several steps, applying maths to real and imaginary problems.
