Together we can achieve

Year 6 Windermere


Teaching and Learning in Windermere (Year 6) AutumnTerm 2



Our topic this term is the Victorians with our class novel being ‘Street Child’. We will also look at an abridged version of ‘The Speckled Band’, using the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson as a stimulus for our own short story writing.


Reading comprehension will focus on various elements of Victorian life including the British empire, life in the workhouses, and Victorian Carlisle.



We will continue to look at fractions, namely how to add, subtract, multiply and divide by other fractions and whole numbers. After this, we will look at how to translate and reflect shapes in all four quadrants, then consolidate our first term’s learning in preparation for assessment week.



Children will study the topic of light by carrying out a range of investigations and experiments to understand how we see light and colours through a variety of objects.



Our PE days this term are Monday and Thursday. Children’s fitness will be pushed to the limit as we challenge ourselves physically through a variety of games and exercises to work our muscles.



Homework will be sent home half termly. It will consist of a range of different tasks. Children can choose a variety of these to do for the set date, with three being the minimum amount.
