Year 6

Curriculum Coverage

Language + Questioning = Communication


These three words sit at the heart of our curriculum.

Children need to have:

  • a good grasp of language
  • be able to question and reason

We achieve this by using the principles of Philosophy for Children to become: critical, creative, caring and collaborative thinkers; this will allow our children to become good communicators which is an essential life skill.

Year 6 Reading Stimulus

Autumn Term

This term we are using ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’ by Emma Carroll as the stimulus for our English.  This book is set in the period of World War Two. Olive's sister went missing in London and then her mum evacuated Oliver and her little brother Cliff to Devon. ... Letters from the Lighthouse starts when Olive's sister Sukie goes missing. This fits in with our History topic on World War Two.
