Curriculum Map 

Below is an overview of the Year 6 curriculum. Within our curriculum in Year 6, we aim to build children’s aspirations and curiosity through engaging content, to foster learners who embrace a world of possibilities and opportunities.

 Home Learning Expectations

In Year 6, we expect children to develop agency by taking responsibility for their own learning at home. This will help them prepare for their transition to regular homework at secondary school. The homework has been designed to give children a small but regular amount to do throughout the week.

The children’s homework is comprised of:

  • Practising their weekly spellings, which follow a focused spelling rule.
  • Practising their multiplication and division fact recall using Times Table Rockstars (TTRS).
  • Reading five times weekly at home.
  • Optional: completing activities from the half termly home learning menu, comprised of longer tasks that link to culture and various subjects across the curriculum.

The spellings and home learning menu will be sent home and collected at the beginning and end of each half term, respectively. TTRS and reading records will be checked weekly and spellings will be tested in school to ensure that they are being practised.

 PE Days

Children currently have PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

 SATS

Year 6 children, across the country, take SATs test in the second week of May.  They have assessments in Reading, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling, and Maths. There are 3 maths papers: an arithmetic test and two reasoning tests.

The children have plenty of opportunity to practise for these assessments, so by the time the come around they are more than ready!
