English: Autumn 1

Star of Fear, Star of Hope : Hoestlandt, Jo: Books

Star of Fear, Star of Hope is a fantastic text to begin the year with as it links perfectly with our History unit: The World Wars. Over the next 6 weeks, year 6 will be delving deep into this fabulous book and they will develop their existing English skills as well as developing new ones. Here below are the targets for this upcoming English unit.


Mastery Keys: These are the different skills your children will display throughout their writing in this unit of work.

  • Use relative clauses beginning with who, which, where, when, whose, that or an omitted relative pronoun

  • Adverbs to indicate degrees of possibility

  • Use a wider range of devices to build cohesion across paragraphs

  • Link ideas using tense choices

Maths - Autumn 1

To begin the academic year, year 6 will be covering Place Value. 

Place value is the first mathematics unit in Year 6. The place value mats below show some of the expectations in this area of mathematics for Year 5 and 6.

It is very important the children are secure in this area of maths because having great confidence in knowing and working with whole and decimals numbers underpins lots of other areas of mathematics.
