The Topic this half term is
Our topic this half term is geography based. We will be learning about going green. We will be calculating food miles & our carbon footprints and debating the impact of tourism. This is a cross curricular topic – we will be applying our maths and writing skills in afternoon lessons and creating artwork.
In science, Year 6 will be learning about Forces and Movement. The topic will be investigation based and we will experiment with friction, air resistance and water resistance. We will be learning about forces in machines.
Reading and Writing
In writing Year 6 will be focussing on our sentence and text structure. We will develop our use of punctuation and learn to build cohesion across a range of contexts. Spelling, grammar and punctuation will be taught daily.
In reading we will study a range of genre types. We will build on our skills for comprehension. Year 6 will be revising a variety of genres and learning how to answer questions on texts. We will link our texts to the contexts we are studying in writing (including Keeping Healthy, Zlata’s Dairy and War Poetry).
In maths we will be learning about number and place value, written methods for all four operations, fractions, decimals and percentages, geometry, measures and algebra. We will be applying our skills to word problems and maths investigations. Year 6 will be revising the knowledge they need for SATs, mental maths skills and investigations.
