Welcome to Term 1 in Year 6. 

Term 5

As we head into Term 5, it will be

action packed and busy. We will be preparing for the SATs and also starting to prepare the children for secondary school. This is a busy time, filled with nerves and excitement.  

As the SATs test get closer, we use the weeks leading up to it to help prepare the children and ensure they have all the tools they need to be successful in their assessments.  We will in the first few weeks focus on reading, writing and maths but following the tests, we will then re-focus on our other curriculum areas. Please see the weblinks below for any revision websites your child may want to access. 



In our curriculum focus, we look at evolution and change. Where have we come from and how did we get here? We study the evolution of living things and how man has evolved and changed. We look at inheritance and how Darwin's survival of the fittest model works in the natural world.
