Teacher – Mrs M Hanson
Teaching Assistant – Mrs H Finnegan
Learning – autumn 1
Our topic is science based: it is called ‘Where do we come from?”.
We will be learning about how animals and plants change over time through the study of fossils. We will learn how plants and bodies of animals have evolved and adapted to suit their environment and how offspring can vary.
ENGLISHIn reading, Year 6 will be revising a variety of genres and learning how to answer questions on texts: including the text Skellig. They will focus on comprehension skills in order to prepare for their SATs Tests.
In writing, Year 6 will be studying the text Skellig. We will be focusing on our sentence and text structure. We will develop our use of punctuation and learn to build cohesion across a range of contexts. We will write biographies and reports linked to our topic on evolution.
In Maths, year 6 will be consolidating and extending their knowledge of number and place value, written methods for the four operations, fractions, decimals and percentages. We will be applying our knowledge to problem solving and becoming fluent and effective mathematicians.
