Year 6 Book Character

Welcome back to Summer  2  

Eid Mubarak to you all !

In sha Allah you had a wonderful break and a great Eid.  I have set out the learning for this term, below.  We will be continuing to work hard this term to  ensure that the children gain the skills required to have a great start to their secondary education. If there are any questions please do not hesitate  to ask. 

Please ensure chilren bring a water bottle to school as they need to stay hydrated during the day. 


This term the children will work with polygons on coordinate grids. We will  learn about  translation and reflection before moving on to express movement using algebra.  The children will  review negative numbers on horizontal and vertical axes, before moving on to  to describe the position of objects in relation to a common starting point. Pupils begin to use a coordinates grid from different starting points and recode the coordinates of the points. The coordinate grids  will become more complex using all four quadrants and translating and reflecting objects.We will also describe  movement (translation and reflection) on a grid using algebra.

 We will continue our work on  mental maths to increase the children’s fluency around numbers.  



Floodlands  is set in the near future on land reclaimed by the sea  It tells the story of a girl who, having been mistakenly left behind by her parents escaping from the flood,  heads off to find them. This book ties in with the recent geography topic – climate change  – and has some powerful messages about global warming.  The children will write poetry, participate in debates as well as write a radio report The emphasis this term is sentence structure and editing work to ensure that it is enjoyable for the audience. 


Guided Reading

The Boy in the Tower is about a young boy who faces many dilemmas. Ade, who lives with his mother,watches as the buildings fall around him. The Bluchers – a strange and terrible kind of plant – are taking over the city, and everyone is being forced to evacuate, but his mother is refusing to leave her room. And so Ade watches alone as the city slowly empties, and the Bluchers creep ever closer…

During guided reading sessions, children learn new vocabulary as well as use inferring skills and explanation to answer questions about the book. 

Science     – 

Changing Circuits.

Children will  work towards solving a quest question – ʻHow can we fix a broken score board?ʼ They will recognise  symbols in circuit diagrams correctly. They will  discuss analogies and offer their own explanations for the results of their investigations about altering brightness of bulbs and volume of buzzers. They will describe how to do this in a variety of ways including changing the number of components, battery voltage, or the properties of the wires in the circuits.


During computing lessons, the children will create a text adventure game . The children will use hyperlinks to create the options,allowing the user to to tell their own version of a story.  The children will then complete the term by learning about web design. 


Year 6 have P.E on Thursdays. Please ensure that children come to school in their P.E kit and bring  water bottles.
