Year 6

Welcome to Class 6 

Welcome to the Year 6 Spring overview. We hope to provide you with some useful information about Year 6 in the lead up to SATS as well as an overview of the terms curriculum.  The school curriculum has changed slightly from last year in order to ensure children are covering the skills they need. We value and appreciate parental support and interest in the curriculum and we are sure that your child does too.


This term, our topic is ‘Chocolate’. The children will learn all about the Maya Civilisation and how chocolate was discovered as well as learning all about North and South America. Please see the attached overview for more information about the curriculum the children will be learning during the term.
