Familiar and favourite poems - old and new, from William Blake and Rudyard Kipling to T. S. Eliot and Roald Dahl. Literature from around the world - Don Quixote from Spain and The Samurai's Daughter from Japan, as well as extracts from great classics of literature like Oliver Twist, The Secret Garden and Le Morte d'Arthur. Learning about language - learn the basic building blocks of language and literature, including figurative language, imagery and metaphor- parts of speech, punctuation and grammar- together with the ever-popular explanations of proverbial phrases and sayings. Geography - learn about map projections and time zones, explore the geography of several regions of the UK and travel through the American continent, from Canada to the Amazonian rainforest. History - learn about British history from the Industrial Revolution to the death of Queen Victoria, and about the American Civil War that abolished slavery in the USA. Visual arts - become familiar with some of the greatest art ever created by Renaissance masters Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. Music - understand the basics of reading and appreciating music as well as the lives of great composers, together with an introduction to spirituals and a collection of songs for Year 6 children to sing. Mathematics - improve your mastery of arithmetic with long division, negative numbers and decimal multiplication, ratios, scales and lowest common denominators, before diving further into geometry, functions and transformations.
