Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

Our teacher is Mrs Smith and our TA is Mrs Sharp. 

Spring Term 2021

Spring: Our main topics this term are Vikings (in history) and Microbes (in Science.) We will be carrying out a large range of writing tasks, both fiction and non-fiction, using our topics as the theme. We will be writing biographies about famous scientists and writing our own legends using Viking Mythology.

In Maths we will be working on percentages, and learning how to multiply and divide fractions. We will work on applying our knowledge to solve problems, using a range of standard methods to calculate. We will also focus on statistics such as line graphs, pie charts and averages and use these skills in other subject areas.

In Science we will carry out experiments and observations to help us learn about mould, germs and bacteria, and consider how to stay healthy. We will also be learning about forces, such as friction, air and water resistance, and investigate these in a range of ways.

We will carry out lots of art and craft activities based on Viking artefacts, and will be using microbes as a stimulus for some artwork. In D/T we will be cooking stew and constructing longboats.

In music, we are singing songs to help us learn key facts about Vikings and Microbes. We will also learn some key musical terminology, whilst also learning the songs and dances for Voice in a Million.

In PE, we will be learning the skills required to play hockey and LaCrosse, and develop dance sequences. We will also create sequences in dance and gym.

Our PSHCE will be focused on keeping healthy and thinking about our dreams and goals for the future.
