Curriculum Information

Autumn 1 - Crime and Punishment


Welcome back!



Our writing this half term will be focused around our SPaG programme. We will also be recapping our genres from Y5 and tackling mini writing sessions each week to reflect them.




Over the term will be practising a variety of comprehension (VIPERS) skills including: inferencing and predicting and we will also be covering a number of vocabulary, grammar and punctuation objectives. Reading is such an important skill; it really unlocks all areas of the curriculum. 




This will be our big focus for the half term. Y6 will use their English sessions to polish up their SPaG from Y5 and learn the new content for Y6. We feel positive that this will ensure they feel really confident about their writing throughout Y6.




In Year 6 we follow the White Rose Maths scheme at Long Crendon. This half term we will be focusing on Place Value and starting out 4 rule operation work.


History & Geography 


A fantastic start to the Y6 year, we begin with a history topic: Crime and Punishment throughout the ages. Looking back over all of the history topics that Y6 have previously studied and seeing how both crime and punishment has changed. 




This term, we will be learning about the way our bodies work. We will look at the impact of exercise, diet, lifestyle and drugs on the way our bodies function. We will then investigate the circulatory system including the heart to see how this works.


Art & DT 


For our first half term , Autumn 1, we will be enjoying an Art focus. We will look at mark making and how we can extend this to be more creative in how we draw, see patterns and line. We will include some graffiti art work which links nicely to our Crime and Punishment topic this half term.
