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 School 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 globalisation and interdependence.
We expect the children to be accessing Reading Plus on a regular basis and practising their spellings on Edshed, as well as using online platforms such as Times Tables Rockstars and Mymaths to consolidate their mathematical understanding. If you require login details, please contact Miss Hennessy or Miss Webb.
Over the course of the next term, we will be reading Darwins Dragons by Lindsay Galvin. This text is linked to the science work that we are studying which is based on adaptation and evolution as well as our geography work around biomes.
Our narrative writing focus will be linked to the 'Just So' stories by Rudyard Kipling ; we will use these stories as a stimulus to create our own versions.
Our maths work over the coming term will recap over number and place value and also focus on fractions, decimals, percentages, ratio and proportion, area and perimeter and statistics. 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, the different biomes found around the world and what living things thrive and survive in that biome. We will be using statistics related to the weather, rainfall and temperature to compare biomes.
Our main science focus since January has been evolution and inheritance. We have been 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.
