Year 6

This week in Year 6 (17.09.18)
In English:

This week we will be looking at the difference between an auto-biography and a biography. Children will have an opportunity to research and write a biography about someone famous from their home country – linking to IPC. The work children produce in this unit will be assessed. To be working towards the year 6 expectation, children should confidently be able to show that they are able to use capital letters and full stops, use question marks, show commas in a list, remember to use apostrophes for contraction, use paragraphs to organise ideas, spell most words from the year 3+4, 5+6 list correctly as well as writing legibly.



We will continue to work on place value. Children will be solving number and practical problems that involve large numbers, rounding and negative numbers.

This week in


It has been lovely to witness children research and be amazed with findings about their home county.  This week, children will be working with maps. We will be looking at:

  • What a map shows
  • Identifying landmarks
  • Estimating the distance between two places using string
  • Understanding how to read co-ordinates on a map
  • Understanding what a scaled map is
Parents can help their child by:
  • Ensuring that children complete homework on time and remember to bring it back by Tuesday
  • Helping your child learn their spellings
  • Making sure children are fluent in their timetables up to 12x12.
  • Promote reading at home. Children are expected to read at least 3 times a week and have their planner signed.
