Year 6 Curriculum

 

Year 6 is a year of hard work - getting in place those all important skills and knowledge before the children leave for Secondary School. It is also a year of fun and celebration of their time at St Stephen's. 

 

Autumn Term
Our first topic is 'Tempestuous Tudors', which involves a study of William Shakespeare- his life and plays.  Our Art work is a focus on Tudor portraits on canvas and the children always enjoy making Tutor Houses in D.T.

Our second topic is 'Sailing the Seven Seas' where we look at biographies, diary writing and have a look at Greenwich and Deptford as the maritime centre of London.

This is a busy term with lots of Secondary School visits taking place!

 

Spring Term
This is a very important term where we are honing our skills needed for the SATS tests next term as well as learning about our twi topics 'Bridges and Tunnels' and 'A World in Our Hands'.

 

Summer Term
For the 1st half of this term children will be revising for and sitting their KS2 SATS. It is a very focused time but will be followed by a very creative time.  In our last topic, 'Moving On', children will reflect on their time in St Stephen's School, make memory books and produce their leavers' assembly.  There will also be days spent at their new schools in preparation for September.  We are always sad to see them leave but know they will be well prepared for the next stage in their school life!
