Our Learning Umbrella for this term will be...

The English Civil War

English Civil War Map 1642 to 1645



We will begin the year looking at Place Value and what makes up numbers with 6 or more digits and how to use our knowledge of rounding within these numbers. Before moving onto adding and subtracting using the column methods. In this half term, we will also begin to look at square and cubed numbers.

Each morning, between 8:45 – 9am, the children will revisit prior learning through Early Bird Maths questions or tasks. These tasks are important for developing fluency and confidence in their learning. .

It is important that the children maintain their fluency in times tables, so should continue to practice regularly using TTRs and other times table games.



On the right is a list of the spellings that children should know by the end of year 6.

This half term we will be focusing on words that end in different suffixes

  • -tion/ -sion/ -ssion/ -cian
  • -our/ -or/ -ous
  • -able/-ible/-ably/-ibly

We will continue to revisit word from Year 4, to ensure the children are confident with these.
