Year 6

Autumn Term 2018

The focus for this term's theme lessons on the rainforest is 'Wonder'. This will be explored through lessons on geographical locations, the rainforest environment, plants and animal habitats, conservation, deforestation and tribes. Our science focuses for this term 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 line with our rainforest theme, we will be making rainforest masks and rain makers. Children will also have the opportunity to create 3D masks based on the attributes of rainforest animals. Over the Autumn Term, children will be creating their own Wallace & Gromit style stop-gap anaimations. They will create the settings from junk-modelling material as well as writing their scripts and making characters from plasticine. This will culminate in a WOW day to create the movie.

During this term, we will focus on building the knowledge they need for SATs. We will use the reciprocal reading appraoch throughout our sessions, encouraging children to predict, clarify, question and summarise as they explore a range of text types. In addition, children will have the opportunity to practise a range of past SATs questions to ensure they are able to use texts efficiently to find inferred and explicit meaning alongside discussing author intent.

To go along with this, we will build our maths subject knowledge in preparation for the tests. Through our use of apply questioning and our tests pupils will have the opportunity to hone a range of mathematical concepts.

Over the term, we will also improve our UNITED skills and develop a deeper understanding of philosophy for children, allowing us to broaden our understanding of many topics and concepts.

Spring Term 2019

This term sees us working on our 'Power' topic with an emphasis on World War II. This will be explored by looking at a timeline of events, allied countries, key historical figures, the blitz and propaganda. We will be drawing comparisons throughout this topic to other examples of power in history. Our art work will see us looking at the 'power of fear' through silhouettes, making gas masks and sketching war time scenes. Along a similar line, our science work will focus on electricity and forces. Through practical and written tasks the children will continue to develop their investigative skills, scientific language and teamwork. Our topic will culminate with a WOW day at the beginning of February.

For further information on our work this term please see the Spring Term Curriculum Letter 2019 below.
