Autumn 2022

Year Six have been working really hard this term - especially in Maths and English lessons - consolidating all their skills from previous year groups but already making great progress with the Year Six curriculum too. 

In Maths lessons, the children have secured written methods for the four operations which has involved learning how to do long multiplication and long division calculations. They are now confident at this and can also solve word problems, answer reasoning questions and explain their learning The children are now working on fractions; they can already add and subtract but are starting to multiply and divide them.

In English lessons, the children thoroughly enjoyed studying the narrative poem 'The Highwayman' by Charles Keeping because it was so dramatic and emotional. Many of them said that it was the best book they had ever read and they produced some excellent pieces of writing in role as the different characters. The current class novel is 'Kensuke's Kingdom' by Michael Morpurgo which has everybody completely engrossed wondering what will happen next!

This term in Year 6, we have lots of exciting things to learn!  Our topic this term is going to be split into two parts.  For the first part of the term, we will be looking at our local history and geography, focusing on St Neots.

Later in the term, we will be looking at 'Life on the Fault Lines', with a focus on volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis and other extreme weather patterns.


Our English lessons will be used alongside a key text, using a book to inspire ideas for reading and writing.  Our first text is from classic literature and will tie in with our St Neots study, and later in the term we will be reading a brilliant novel by Michael Morpurgo.


In Maths, we will be working on our place value skills, and refining our mental and written methods for all four operations.


In Science, we will be looking Living Things and their Habitats, with a focus on classification, before investigating microbes.

We will be playing cricket in PE, creating a number of different pieces of art and DT, and learning French with Mrs Street.
