Year 6 English

Year 6

The Year 6 English curriculum emphasizes three key components: language, literature, and literacy, with a focus on developing students' reading, writing, listening, speaking skills. Students engage with a wide range of texts, including literary works featuring complex plots, diverse characters, and intricate storytelling techniques. These texts explore themes related to human relationships and ethical dilemmas in various settings. Informative texts offer technical knowledge across subjects, employing structures like chapters, headings, and specialized language. Students also create imaginative, informative, and persuasive texts, such as narratives, procedures, performances, and reports, as part of their creative expression and communication skills development.
