Year 6 Spring 2 Curriculum Map

If you would like to know a little more about what the children in Year 6  will be learning about this half term, please refer to our curriculum map document below.

SATS Preparation

Year 6 SATS week commences on May 13th 2024. During this week, the children will undertake the following assessments:

  • Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar
  • Reading
  • Arithmetic
  • Maths Reasoning x 2  In the run-up to SATS, we will be revising all of our learning so far this year in these areas. We will also be looking at how to answer test-style questions. 

We want the children to remember that these assessments can only test one very small part of who they are. It is important that children try their best, but SATS are nothing to worry about. Our Year 6's are all amazing in so many ways, and should be proud of all of their achievements this year. SATs are simply a way for the children to show off everything that they have learnt in Year 6.

In order to help children feel prepared for SATS, here are some practice activities that can be completed at home. We would suggest no more than 10-20 minute bursts of revision at a time.

Our Learning Journey

Below you will find out about our learning journey for this half term.  Please click on any document links for further information.


Our English lessons this year follow a fantastic writing approach called 'I am a Clever Writer'. The children are doing incredibly and producing some amazing writing. Each week, we take part in a 'Star Write' (usually on Wednesdays) in which children have chance to show off all the amazing skills they have been developing in our English lessons.

Letters from the Lighthouse


Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll | Goodreads

Olive and her brother Cliff, have been evacuated from their home in London to the countryside of Devon. What adventures will they get up to whilst away from? 

World Book Day 2024

What a fantastic day we had for World Book Day at Meadow View. The children in Year 6 all looked the part and came dressed as book characters and their own made up characters. We then met Dave the Storyteller, who was certainly the most amazing storyteller we have met. The children were all in awe of his vocabulary choices, tone and pitch of his voice. We even had a workshop with him where he helped us create characters and stories. See some of our pictures below of our work, costumes and workshop. Thank you Mrs Lloyd for organising this for us.

Star Awards 

A huge congratulations to our first four Star Award winners: Edith, Lewis, Aiva and Ronnie. Keep up the fantastic work!



Our focus for Maths during Spring 2 will be revising areas we have previously looked at. We will be starting with algebra and ratio and then moving onto division and multiplication. This is a large area of the curriculum and children will be really embedding their understanding 


PE is every Friday for Year 6. The children need to come into school in their PE ready for their lesson. This half term's focus is 'Tennis'


Homework will be set every Friday and is due back by the following Wednesday. There will be one Maths and one English homework for the children to complete each week, as well as a 10 word spelling list. 

Children are also expected to read at home every night to a grown up and change their home reader book at least once a week.

Please see the Y5&6 statutory spelling list below which the children can also practise.


Every month, we celebrate the amazing children in Year 6 who embody our School Values. Here are our winners so far:

Support - Oscar and Lena

Unique - Antonia and Lily

Positivity - Betsy and Max

Empathy - Nancy and Aiva

Resilience - 

Politeness - Abygail 



Spring Term

In the Spring Term, our big question is: What is the future of planet Earth?

The children have begun by looking at the causes and effects of climate change. We have linked this to our previous learning about the Industrial Revolution, and looked at how climate change really began to speed up following Industrialisation in the UK.


Evolution and Inheritance Display Lettering (teacher made)

Our first Science focus is working around answering the big question 'What is meant by survival of the fittest?'

Below are some images of us working scientifically and trying to answer our big question through investigating and discovering. 


 An important part of being the eldest children in the school, is being fantastic role models for our younger students. Each child in Year 6 is 'buddied-up' with a child in our new Reception class.

The children made cards for their buddies to open over the Summer, and this half term they have been enjoying getting to know each other. We couldn't be prouder of how nurturing, kind and sensible the children have been.
