Our Weekly Timetable

Our curriculum this term is based on Medieval Britain and will be a focused study of one of the most fascinating eras of British history. From replaying the Battle of Hastings to unpicking the Magna Carter, our Y6 pupils will be utterly absorbed in everything medieval!

In Art/DT, Y6 will create medieval shields with their own coats of arms as well as learning the skill of calligraphy. 

In English, we will focus on a book called 'The Watertower' and write a missing chapter, moving onto write a black death diary and then using our knowledge of the Battle of Hastings to compile a newspaper report. Our writing will then begin to focus on knights, writing stories as well as how to be a good knight. 

In Maths, we will focus on place value and the four rules of calculation.

In reading we will unpick the book 'Holes' and learn all about Stanley Yelnats and his unfortunate bad luck. 

Science will be 'electrifying' as we study everything to do with electricity and circuits.
