Year 6 is a very important and action packed year that we hope will give our pupils some excellent lasting memories of their last year in our school. Much of the first half of the school year is spent preparing the children for SATs. Once the SATs are over the children rehearse for their end of year performance, enjoy a week-long residential trip in the Brecon Beacons and take part in induction days at their chosen secondary school.
Our topic for the Autumn term is 'The Rainforest - Power' and much of our work will be linked to this. We will explore geographical locations, the rainforest environment, plants and animals habitats, conservation, deforestation and tribes. Our science focuses will be Evolution and Adaptation. We will look at the work of Charles Darwin and Mary Anning alongside how animals adapt to their habitats.
In Literacy, we will be looking at character description, non-chronological reports, setting description and persuasive arguments. The children will read in school every week and the focus will be on understanding texts - author's intent, characterisation and writer's techniques.
Numeracy will focus on place value, rapid recall, fractions, decimals and percentages, statistics and position.
In PE we will be learning frisbee skills, doing a rainforest dance, playing netball and doing some gymnastics.
The children will continue to learn French, increasing their vocabulary through a range of activities and games.
Our topic this term is 'World War II - is change a good thing?' This will be explored by looking at a timeline of events, evacuation, allied countries, key historical figures, the blitz and propaganda. We will be using a variety of artefacts and also a Wow day in the second half of the term to find out more about rationing, spies and code breaking, shelters and military equipment.
In Maths we will focus on translation, measure and shape during the first half term. The second half term will be revision. We will also be spending a lot of time learning our times tables.
In English we will be working on recounts and timeslip narratives. We will continue to use the Reciprocal reading approach throughout our sessions, encouraging children to predict, clarify, question and summarise as they explore a range of text types. In addition, the children will have the opportunity to practise a range of past SAT's questions to ensure they are able to use texts efficiently to find inferred and explicit meaning alongside discussing author intent. Each week we will also focus on vocabulary, grammar, punctuation and spelling.
This term in Science the children will be learning about electricity and forces and will continue to develop their investigative skills, scientific language and teamwork.
In Art we will be looking at facial and body proportion and the children will be completing self-portraits of themselves as evacuees. Later in the term they will use ModRoc to create their own WWII action figures.
During our Computing lessons we will be learning how to instruct the Probots using accurate positional language and angles. We will them apply this knowledge using the online program Espresso Coding and will develop knowledge of algorithms and debugging.
PE sessions this term will cover volleyball, gymnastics, tennis and a WWII dance.
French lessons will continue each week with Miss Hatchell, our language specialist. The children will learn a range of new vocabulary and well as revising learnt vocaulary through practical activities and games.
