Welcome back to Summer 1
We have a short but busy term ahead and are blessed to be entering into the month of Ramadan.
I have set out the learning for this term below. If there are any questions please let me know.
This term we will conclude our work on finding volume. We will learn how to identify angles as well as consolidating the children’s use of protractors. The children will learn how to measure angles as well as find missing angles in both a straight line as well as a whole circle
Also this term, there will be an emphasis on mental maths. Children are able to use the IXL platform provided by the school to increase their skills.
In class we have been reading Tom’s Midnight Garden (the graphic novel). The children have written poetry . letters and diary entries. We will conclude the book by writing descriptive passages and identifying the similarities and difference between characters. The children will write an alternative ending to the story. The emphasis will be on using vocabulary for effect, a range of sentence starters and punctuation.
We are coming to the end of our book ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’. The children have been very engaged and we are looking forward to finding out if Micheal eventually goes home. This term we will make predictions as well as discussing the themes and morals of the story. We wil learn the definition of some of the vocabulary from the book and the children will write a book review to include their opinions about the book.
Children will work towards solving a quest question – ʻHow can we fix a broken score board?ʼ They will recognise symbols in circuit diagrams correctly. They will discuss analogies and offer their own explanations for the results of their investigations about altering brightness of bulbs and volume of buzzers. They will describe how to do this in a variety of ways including changing the number of components, battery voltage, or the properties of the wires in the circuits.
In computing, we will learn how to input data into a spreadheet as well as use formulas to perform calculations. The children will use the data to problem solve.
Year 6 have P.E on Thursdays.
This term we will be learning about Climate change. They will learn the scientific reasons why the world’s climate changes as well as the importance of citizens taking responsibilty for their world. They will also learn about the effects of climate change on difference habitats and people around the world.
