What will you be learning this term? 


This term we will be focusing on ‘Decimals, Percentages, Fractions and Decimals’. It closely links with our work over the past 3 terms; we will continue to focus on our methods and writing down of our working out. We will use Fridays for arithmetic and reasoning practice on units already covered. Our methods of teaching the calculations can be found on the school website.

It would really help to support our learning in class if you could continue to practise times tables with your Knowing these and being able to confidently recall them underpins the majority of the Maths in the Year 6 curriculum and can really boost progress.

English: Suffragettes Suffragette: The Battle For Equality

This term, we are looking at the suffragettes and their fight for equality. We will begin to understand the key events from the Suffrage movement, including why the movement developed in the first place and how successful it was. We will know key figures (people) from the movement and what they did. In writing, we will know the meaning of bias and find evidence of bias in different types of writing. We will deliver speeches and look at activist movements. 

Science: Our Science topic this term is ‘Electricity’ focusing on the question: How does electricity contribute to the world around us?. Children will associate the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and voltage of cells used in the circuit; they will learn how to compare and give reasons for variations in how components function, including the brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers and the on/off position of switches; and finally, they will use recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram.

R.E: Our Term 4 RE topic is ‘Salvation – ‘What difference does resurrection make for Christians?’ 

  • Outline the timeline of the ‘big story’ of the Bible, explaining the place within it of the ideas of Incarnation and Salvation.
  • Suggest meanings for resurrection accounts, and compare their ideas with ways in which Christians interpret these texts, showing awareness of the centrality of the Christian belief in Resurrection.
  • Explain connections between Luke 24 and the Christian concepts of Sacrifice, Resurrection, Salvation, Incarnation and Hope, using theological terms.
  • Make clear connections between Christian belief in the Resurrection and how Christians worship on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
  • Show how Christians put their beliefs into practice in different ways.
  • Explain why some people find belief in the Resurrection makes sense and inspires them.

PSHE: Healthy Me

In this Puzzle the children discuss taking responsibility for their own physical and emotional health and the choices linked to this. They talk about different types of drugs and the effects these can have on people’s bodies. The class discuss exploitation as well as gang culture and the associated risks. They also talk about mental health / illness and that people have different attitudes towards this. They learn to recognise the triggers for and feelings of being stressed and that there are strategies they can use when they are feeling stressed.
