Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome to the Year 6 page. Here, you can find information about the Year 6 curriculum and upcoming events, but don't forget to check ClassDojo for information on letters as well as more frequent updates from us.
This term, our focus in the curriculum will be our value of Responsibility, alongside our global goal of Sustainable Development.
We expect the children to be accessing Reading Plus on a regular basis, as well as using other online platforms such as Times Tables Rockstars and Sumdog. If you require login details, please contact Miss Hennessy or Mr Hyde.
Secondary school places will be released on Wednesday 1st March.
Over the course of this term, we will have two texts as our main focus for our English work: The Last Bear by Hannah Gold, and Darwins Dragons by Lindsay Galvin. These our linked to our value of responsibility, our Science work based on adaptation and evolution, and our Geography work around biomes.
Our Maths work over the coming term will focus on fractions, decimals, percentages and a new strand based on ratio and proportion. We will look at how these can be used in everyday life, including scaling up recipes and arranging groups. Linked to our Geography work, we will also be looking at statistics and learning how to read and interpret different forms of charts, including line graphs and pie charts.
We will be learning about what biomes are and the different biomes found around the world. We will be using statistics related to the weather, rainfall and temperature to compare biomes and consider what forms of life exist in such places.
Our main Science focus this term will be evolution and inheritance. We will be studying the characteristics that we inherit from our parents and family, as well as those that are environmental. We will learn about different theories of evolution throughout history, compare them and the research that supports each one.
