We hope you had a lovely Christmas beak and are ready for some fantastic learning in 2018!
Our topic work this term will be all about Geography and the wonderful world around us!
We will be learning how to read maps by using grid references and then we will learn about the physical geography of the Earth, including the biomes of the world and its mountain ranges.
We will also be doing some amazing art work using recycled materials as we think about how we, as humans, have an impact upon the environment around us.
In literacy this half term we will be learning all about stories that include issues and dilemmas, before writing our own story based on our class novel, Oranges in No Man's Land by Elizabeth Laird.
In maths this half term we will be focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages and solving a range of problems using these.
Welcome back after the October half term!
This half term, our topic is...
We will be learning all about how life in the Middle Ages was affected by the plague!
In literacy, we will be learning how to write discussion texts to show a balanced argument.
In maths, we will be continuing our work on the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and their formal written methods. Before Christmas, we will then move on to learning all about fractions.
In science, we will be looking at the human circulatory system! We will learn all about the heart, the components of blood and how nutrients are gained from our food then transported through the body.
Welcome back to Year 6! I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and I can't wait to make a start on some of our great learning this half term!
In literacy this half term, we will be basing our work on Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone! This will link with our genre - stories set in imaginary worlds. We will be looking at using a rich and varied vocabulary to excite our reader and build atmosphere and we will also be learning to use commas to mark a range of sentence openers and clauses.
During our Maths lessons this half term, we will be focusing on place value and calculations. We will read, write, order and round using numbers to ten million before using these numbers in many of our written methods.
We will then use the written methods of addition and subtraction, long multiplication and short and long division to solve a range of multi-step problems.
