Welcome to Class 6M


Bellow is our curriculum for this term.

Term: Spring



We use the Abacus scheme, supported by other resources to cover:

Number: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division

Read, write, order and compare numbers up to 10,000,000 and determine the value of each digit

Round any whole number to a required degree of accuracy and solve number and practical problems that involve these.

Multiply multi-digit numbers up to 4 digits by a 2-digit whole number using the formal written method of long multiplication.

Divide nos. up to 4 digits by a 2-digit number using the formal written method of short division.

Perform mental calculations, including with mixed operations and large numbers.

Identify common factors, common multiples and prime numbers.

Use written division methods in cases where the answer has up to two decimal places.

Solve problems which require answers to be rounded to specified degrees of accuracy.

Use estimation to check answers to calculations and determine, in the context of a problem, an appropriate degree of accuracy.

Number: Fractions and Decimals

Use common factors to simplify fractions; use common multiples to express fractions in the same denomination.

Compare and order fractions, including fractions >  1.

Add and subtract fractions with different denominators and mixed numbers, using the concept of equivalent fractions.

Associate a fraction with division and calculate decimal fraction equivalents .

Identify the value of each digit in numbers given to 3 decimal places and multiply and divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1000 giving answers up to 3 decimal places.

Use written division methods in cases where the answer has up to two decimal places.

Solve problems which require answers to be rounded to specified degrees of accuracy

Recall and use equivalences between simple fractions, decimals and percentages,  including in different contexts.


Solve problems involving the calculation and conversion of units of measure, using decimal notation up to three decimal places where appropriate.

Use, read, write and convert between standard units, converting measurements of length, mass, volume and time from a smaller unit of measure to a larger unit, and vice versa, using decimal notation to up to three decimal places.

Convert between miles and kilometres.

Geometry: Properties of Shape

Draw 2-D shapes using given dimensions and angles.

Recognise, describe and build simple 3-D shapes, including making nets.

Compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons.

Illustrate and name parts of circles, including radius, diameter and circumference and know that the diameter is twice the radius.

Recognise angles where they meet at a point, are on a straight line, or are vertically opposite, and find missing angles.


Interpret and construct pie charts and line graphs and use these to solve problems.



This term the children will develop their comprehension skills through a variety of texts.  We shall be reading and discussing fiction, poetry, plays and non-fiction material. In our writing, we shall be analysing the features of a range of text types.  These will include a selection of historical stories, narrative poems, significant authors, choral and performance poems and recounts.   Children will be provided with opportunities to plan their writing through developing their initial ideas, and drawing on reading and research undertaken in class.  They will also draft and write, experimenting with vocabulary and developing their understanding of how such choices can change and enhance meaning.  There will be a strong emphasis placed on evaluating and re-editing their own and others’ writing, to assess and propose vocabulary, grammar and punctuation improvements


Classic Fiction: Rudyard Kipling's  'Just So' stories are the base for children's own narratives using this theme.

Our non-fiction writing is to create a balanced discussion presenting two sides of the argument, following a debate lined to our geography topic - Fair Trade. The ancient civilisation of the Mayans (linked to history) will provide the basis for a factual report.


Spelling and Grammar

This term we will cover the usage of adjectives, modal verbs, prefixes and suffixes, a full range of punctuation, clauses, phrases, tenses and the parts of speech. Spelling and handwriting are also taught, with an aim to develop legibility, fluency and speed. 


Science:  We're Evolving!

This term we are looking at how living things produce offspring that are similar in appearance, but identical to themselves, whether they are plants or animals. Children also consider how animals change over time as they adapt to their surroundings and how  this leads to longer term changes. Evidence of changes over long periods of time, building on the earlier learning about rocks,  is discussed when looking at fossils.


Let it Shine!

This topic introduces the concept of light travelling in straight lines. It starts by looking at beams of light and how light travels to enable children to
understand how we see things. We then look at the production of shadows and start to look at how light is reflected. The topic then explores  the realm of coloured light and rainbows, using scientific skills to raise and answer questions. It builds on the work children have carried out previously on light, shadows and reflection.



Topic: Geography - Where does our stuff come from?






PHSE Keeping /staying healthy. 


 MFL - French - Y6 children learn a range of conversational French
