Welcome to the Year 6 page and to the learning in Spring 1.
Assalamu alaikum and welcome back to Spring Term.
This term we are looking forward to building on the great work that the children achieved last term. Thank you to parents/carers for your support.
Please continue to encourage the children to complete their CGP books and other homework. They should be using the IXL website everyday to practise their Maths and English skills.
In English we will be reading a classic text
‘Tom’s Midnight Garden’ (the graphic novel version). We will focus on grammar and vocabulary which will improve the children’s literacy skills. We will write letters, documentary scripts, poetry and persuasive writing.
In maths this term, we will be completing our work on ratios and continuing on to learn algebra. The children will learn about area and perimeter of a triangle and the properties of a circle.
They will learn how to recognise the nets of 3d shapes and how to interpret graphs, including pie charts. They will also learn how to find the average.
Our topic will be ‘classifying living things’. Children will learn to describe how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including micro-organisms, plants and animals.
The children will locate South American environmental regions, key physical & human features and its countries major cities. They will use maps, atlases, globes and digital mapping (e.g. Google Earth) to locate places and describe features.
In art we will be learning about Chinese Art. We will look at the key skills and objects used in chinese art. Children will learn how to use different brush techniques.
Year 6 will be building on their coding skills by using Scratch programming. They will use this coding to solve maths problems as well as design their own maths problems
Year 6 have P.E on Thursdays. Please ensure your children comes to school in their PE Kit
