Year 6 2020 - 2021
We hope you have had a lovely Easter holiday and are excited about the term ahead.
Mrs. Gurney, Mrs. Watson and Mrs. Morgan are really looking forward to welcoming you all back.
Our topic for the Summer Term is Awesome Adventurers
Mathematics sessions will develop and continue to consolidate everyone's knowledge of Number, Ratio and Proportion, Algebra, Measurement, Geometry and Statistics.
In English we will be writing Narratives including a thriller. Our non-fiction focuses will be: Non-chronological reports (Christopher Columbus), recounts/ diary entries linked to Adventurers, Journalism, biographies, discussions, persuasive writing. We will be writing Performance Poetry inspired by explorers.
We will enjoy reading an adventure story by one of our favourite authors in our Guiding Reading sessions.
The children will be learning about ‘Living Things and Their Habitats’ in the first half term which will teach them about the classification of living things, including micro-organisms, building on previous work by sorting animals into groups based on their similarities and differences. They will extend their learning to find out about the standard system of classification first developed by Carl Linnaeus, choosing an animal and researching its classification.
In History we shall be able to investigate famous explorers including: Captain Cook, Cortez and Marco Polo and to understand chronology placing geographical achievements in time order.
In Geography we shall explore islands thinking about human, geographical features e.g. mountains, deserts and other terrains, whilst researching the famous explorers.
In Computing the children will explore the concept of variables in programming through games in Scratch.
Pupils will learn what variables are, and relate them to real-world examples of values that can be set and changed, using variables to create a simulation of a scoreboard.
In Art, children will investigate landscape sketches and paintings focusing on the work of Leonid Afremov.
In Design Technology, children will be created 3D islands, producing individual versions of famous landscapes using a range of media.
Children will also be completing Transition units in Maths, English, Science and French for Poynton High School.
