Year 6 Book Character

Assalamu Alaikum

InshaAllah you had a restful break! 

This term we will be working towards the upcoming SATs tests, focusing particularly on reading, grammar, writing and maths. We would request your support for reading and the completion of homework – which is always  set out on the classroom page. Please do not hesitate to see me if there are any questions. The children will be provided with CGPs and we would request that they are returned to school daily. 

 

Thank you for your ongoing support.

English 

Our novel for this term is “Rooftoppers” by Katherine Rundell. The story follows the adventures of a young girl named Sophie, who is found in the English Channel as a baby. She is taken in by Charles, a scholar and single parent, and together they embark on a journey to Paris to search for Sophie’s mother.

In our English lessons, students will immerse themselves in a variety of engaging writing tasks, including a non chronological report, note writing ,letter writing, documentary script writing, poetry, diary writing, descriptive writing, persuasive writing, biography and a  character description. Our focus extends beyond content, emphasising the mastery of punctuation, such as semicolons and brackets, along with the use of cohesion and powerful vocabulary to craft writing that is not only informative but also a pleasure to read. This term we will focus on using specific vocabulary which makes  writing more interesting. 

Guided Reading

In guided reading this term, we will focus on important comprehension skills such as prediction, summarising, learning the meaning of vocabulary in context, and inferencing.  We will look at a range of questions particularly focusing on  how to answer them using evidence from the text. 

 Children should be reading at home everyday. We have a range of books, in the class and on Bug Club, that the children have access to. Please ensure that they are recording their reading in their reading journals. We will also be asking children to record interesting phrases and sentences from their reading that can be used in their writing. 

 

Maths

This term the children will work with polygons on coordinate grids. They will differentiate between translation and reflection before moving on to express movement using algebra. They will  learn how  to describe the position of objects in relation to a common starting point and  use a coordinate grid from different starting points and recode the coordinates of the points. The coordinate grids become more complex as the lessons progress by  using all four quadrants and translating and reflecting objects. Also the children will describe movement (translation and reflection) on a grid using algebra.

Computing

In computing the children will be using G Sheets (spreadsheets) to learn how to use data and formulae.  They will input data on sales and use a formula to calculate the total price and the price following a percentage discount. The children will also compile  their own pocket money spreadsheet which will compute the amount of money for each hour carrying out a task and provide the totals. We will also be learning how to  create a spreadsheet for a school fair – the children  will decide the price of activities and use formula to calculate the totals as well as the profit for their fair. 

Science

Classifying living things 

In science this term, we will learn how to classify living things using the major classification kingdoms defined by Carl Linnaeus. The children will identify and describe the observable characteristics of a range of classification groups including microorganisms, plants and animals. They will compare the similarities and differences between different species of buttercup and earthworm. Children will make careful observations to identify the characteristics that help scientists classify all living things, such as whether a living thing has a backbone and how they reproduce. Children will also be able to use their observations to construct classification keys of increasing complexity. They will use evidence from their investigation to predict and investigate how to accelerate the rate of decay in a mini-composter.

Topic 

Climate change 

This term we will be learning geography. We will be investigating what factors contribute to climate change and what the effects of climate change are on our health and environment. We will learn about the action we can take to slow down the process. We know that the world is an Amana from Allah (swt) and we need to carry out our duty by protecting the earth. During our lessons, we will be creating posters and speeches to raise awareness as well as using atlas to locate different climates and biomes around the world. 

Art 

Landscape Art

This term, our students will embark on an exciting journey of learning as they explore the art of landscape drawing through the lens of perspective. Drawing inspiration from renowned artists, they will delve into the world of colours and techniques that contribute to the creation of captivating landscape pictures. Equipped with viewfinders, our young artists will engage in thoughtful exploration, using this tool to envision and craft their own finished masterpieces. The children will use sketching and different techniques with their paint brushes to create effective landscape paintings

 PE

P.E lessons will be on Tuesday.  Please ensure that your child comes to school wearing their P:E kit.
