Here are some pictures of work we have been doing this year! Enjoy!
Welcome to Year 6
Our teacher is Mrs Smith and our TAs are Mrs Sharp and Mr Dumughn.
This summer, we are learning about the world’s biomes as part of our geography project called ‘It’s a Wonderful World’. We are learning how to use figurative language effectively in poems and stories with river and mountain settings and doing lots of research about rivers and mountains around the world, as well as other biomes.
In D/T we will annotate a model to demonstrate our geographical understanding of the key features of rivers and mountains.
In Science we are learning about interdependence, evolution and inheritance and studying animals and plants in different world biomes, considering their adaptations. We are learning how to classify animals and plants, focusing on the work of Carl Linnaeus, whilst using keys and will be carrying out fieldwork around the school grounds and at a river, where we will draw field sketches, use maps, carry out environmental surveys and explore different habitats for animals and plants. We will be applying lots of mathematical skills when interpreting data in geography and Science this term.
In art, we will learn lots of textiles skills when studying artists that paint waterscapes and will be sketching lots of animals and plants from different biomes.
In music, we are singing songs with a river and mountain theme, and will be creating compositions with percussion and tuned instruments to illustrate the journey of a river. We will also work hard on performance of various songs for the school play.
In PE, we are developing striking and fielding skills in cricket and rounders, and improving athletics skills such as running, jumping and throwing. We will also learn how to play Ultimate Frisbee and develop dance routines for the school play.
In RE we will be focusing on God’s creation and discussing points of view and have a trip to a Hindu temple to look forwards to.
There will be lots of focus on PSHE this term- preparing for transition to Secondary School, whilst working on friendship and co-operation within the class. We will be focusing on relationships and changing in our JIGSAW session.
For those sitting the SATs this year, the timetable is:
|Tuesday 9 May 2023||English grammar, punctuation and spelling papers 1 and 2|
|Wednesday 10 May 2023||English reading|
|Thursday 11 May 2023||Mathematics papers 1 (Arithmetic) and 2 (Reasoning)|
|Friday 12 May 2023||Mathematics paper 3 (Reasoning)|
During SATs week it is even more important for children to focus on their mental wellbeing, through good sleep, keeping active and connecting with others.
At school they will be carrying out a textiles project throughout the week which is a great way for them to relax after completing the tests in the morning.
They will have done all they need to do by the time the tests come around, so no need for revision that week!
