In science we will be looking at inheritance and adaptation linked to animals found in the rainforest. We will also be looking at human evolution, and evaluating this theory against creation stories. In maths we will continuing our work on number but also starting to bring in work on shape, measure and coordinates. We will continue to use lots of physical resources to develop the children's reasoning skills.
I am really looking forward to the spring term, I hope the children are too!
Summer: This term is going to be very busy as we prepare for the SATs and then start our transition work ready for secondary school.
We are kicking off the new term by getting straight into revision for the SATs. Over the Spring Term year six worked exceptionally hard which meant we had covered the whole curriculum before the Easter holidays. Having spoken to the class they have come up with the areas of revision they would like to cover. It is lovely to see how engaged they are in their own learning.
In maths we are revisiting long division, fractions and enlargement of shape. In literacy we are going to be recovering subjunctive mood, clause names and passive voice.
Of course, we are still completing our science curriculum, and we have already designed our own experiments to see how different materials absorb or reflect light. We will also be looking at refraction, then later on in the term we will be doing a module on circuits.
In art we are studying the work of Lowry, experimenting with colour and mood. The children have drawn some fantastic Lowry inspired pieces.
In topic we will be continuing with our work on the Rainforest till after the SATs, then we will be looking at the 1900s (a decade a week), focusing on art and historical events.
Obviously this term we will also be preparing for the year 5/6 production. We had great fun auditioning for the parts! Year 6 did exceptionally well.
Until the SATs there will be less homework due to the level of work during the week. Homework will be set when I feel the children need extra practice at a particular area as a class. Once the SATs are over homework will be more topic based, such as research projects that may be completed over 2 weeks.
As always. if you have any queries please come to see me, or feel free to come and have a look at your children's work in the year 6 classroom and the corridors.
Keep an eye on the photos section as more photos of ratio pizza, ice cream making, STEM activities and dance will be up soon!
Well done so far year 6!
Please keep an eye on this page as we will be adding photos of all the exciting things we get up to very soon.
