Year 6M 2023 - 2024
Welcome to 6M
Welcome back after the Christmas break!
In English, we will be focussing on different genres of writing where the children have the opportunity to edit and redraft their work; ensuring each piece of writing shows their true potential. We will start by looking at villains in poetry, thinking about writing our own version of ‘The Spider and the Fly’. We will then be moving onto ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’. We will be reading the story in class and basing our writing around it. We will be using the thoughts and feelings of the characters to produce our writing. We will then move on to looking at information texts based on evacuees.
In Maths, we will begin with rounding, thinking about measurements. Then we will move onto looking at fractions and percentages of amounts. Children will be taking part in Freckles Maths and answer questions that are marked automatically and then are tested at the end. We will continue with the competition between the classes on TT Rock stars, and we will see which class wins just before the end of the term.
In Science, we will be looking at ‘Animals including Humans’. Children will get the opportunity to observe how the human body works and how blood moves around the body. In Geography, the topic we are looking at is ‘Are we damaging our world?’ We will be learning about how our actions are effecting the world globally. In Art, we will be focussing on Monet and looking at ‘What can you see?
The Christian Value we will explore is ‘Perseverance'. This half term, we will be focussing on significant events around the world, the children will be answering Big Questions and posing their own.
We are looking forward to another exciting term with Year 6!
As always, if you have any questions about Year 6 come and speak to one of the teachers.
