The Year 6 Curriculum
Each term our projects are carefully planned to ensure all of the objectives for Year 6 are taught in an appropriate sequence. You can find out all about the content of each subject area by visiting our Curriculum Page and selecting the subject you are interested in. Individual subjects are grouped together into common areas, for example STEM subjects such as Science, Computing and DT are under the Science and Technology tab.
Each term you can see our Curriculum Map and Knowledge Organiser to get more specific information on what your child will be learning that term. These can be found below.
