Year 6 Team

These are our Values at Salisbury Road

Underpinning all of our learning and time together are our school values. They are also linked to our Dojo rewards. Will will learn about and celebrate examples of each value daily.

Unity is our current termly value.



At Salisbury Road, we believe that reading as a priority, so we ensure that we read at every opportunity. This term, we will be reading A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket.  


Our reading sessions will contain questions which will prepare children for their SATs and focusing on VIPER skills to hone our skills.


Reading at home is so important for many reasons and we ask that you read regularly (minimum 4 times a week) at home. Prizes are up for grabs at the end of the term for those that do this! Remember, the more often you read, the sooner you get to quiz on AR and move up those levels!  



As Writers, we will continue to hone our writing skills which will put us in good stead for our journey into year 7. We will be writing pieces that will allow us to show off what we have been taught throughout the year. We will be spending time editing our writing to ensure that we are using the SPACEWAVESLAVE tool kits in all of our writing—where appropriate.







As Mathematicians, we will be taking a more in-depth look at the reasoning behind certain maths skills. We will also be focusing on applying a test technique to answer reasoning questions. We will continue to revise calculation methods through our morning flashbacks and weekly calculation sessions.






As Scientists, we will be looking at classification of animals and how we group them accordingly. We will also be looking at humans and the functions of the human body.






As Geographers, we will be looking at globalisation and the impacts of it on the planet. We will be looking at the big question ‘Is globalisation always positive?’ and answering it from knowledge we will gain throughout the learning.






As Philosophers, we will be learning about relationships and control. We will study how to cope when something goes wrong and who can help us. 



Our key questions for the term are...

What does belonging mean to me?

What can I do to make others feel that they belong?







PE kits will need to be in school each week. PE will be on a Friday for 6SH and 6GL.


As Athletes, we will use team work and coordination skills to take part in a range of indoor athletics sports. We will look at improving our throwing and catching skills. We will also explore different movement styles such as: jumping, sprinting, jogging and walking. We will do this through a variety of team games.






As Computer programmers, we will be studying Information Technology with links to data including Big Data. We will then look at how Big Data can help with our way of lives.





In RE, we will explore, “Why is the Torah so important to Jewish people?” and “How does faith help when life gets hard?”



Design Technology

As Designers, we will be using electrical components using Microbit or Crumble to program code to create lights for safety. 




As Artists, we will be learning about perspective drawing. We will be practising drawing from 1 point or 2 points. We will be focusing on the work of Hans Vredeman De Vries.
