Welcome to the Year 6 Page
Welcome to the Spring term. Hope you all had a restful break. Alhamdulillah, we’ve had a successful Autumn term. You all have worked increadibly well, so keep up the fantastic work in Spring 1.
In maths, the children will be studying: Area and Perimeter; Volume; Geometry; Position and Movement; Graphs and Averages; Negative Numbers. Insha’Allah, we will be completing the Year 6 Maths curriculum by the end of this spring term.
We are starting English with a great childrens graphic novel called ‘Tom’s Midnight Garden’, by Phillipa Pearce. Children will be writing narratives, diary entries and letters.
This term in Guided Reading we will carry on reading ‘The Explorer’ by Katherine Rundell. This book is about a group of children are stranded in an amazon jungle. A survival story in which the children will practise their reading fluency as well as answer questions using inferencing and retrieval skills. The emphasis is on children understanding the questions they are being asked and how to link their answer to evidence from the text. We will be also using CGP books for reading revision.
Classifying Living Things
Children will recognise that living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics. They will identify similarities and differences between a wide range of different living things including micro-organisms, plants and animals. In addition, the children will have offer reasons for classifying plants and animals based on their characteristics. Children will also carry out investigations to observe the characteristics of different species of earthworms and buttercups. They use their observations to construct classification keys of increasing complexity. Children will plan and carry out a comparative test to find out how moulds grow. Children will be using scientific key skills and scientific vocabulary during the lessons.
This term children will be going on scratch Maths. Children will carry out investigations on Place Value and Time.
Year 6 have P.E on Tuesdays. Please ensure that children come to school in their P.E kit and bring water bottles.
