Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

For our entry Point, Year 6 became presenters and directors. After finding out about some of the world's islands, the children were invited to pick one island to focus on. They had to imagine they worked for the island's tourism board and were tasked with creating a commercial promoting their chosen island. The children did an amazing job and got us all in the 'holiday mood.'

You can see some of these commercials below...

Our Learning

Our new topic this term is 'Earth as an Island' where we will be exploring islands from around the world including their features, climate and cultures. We will also be finding out why many islands are at threat and how geographical processes can cause their landscapes to change.

As Geographers we will:

•Use geographical terms to name and describe features of islands

•Explore how island cities have developed over time 

•Investigate how changes on earth and developments on islands are causing issues for island communities

•Consider the challenges when relocating island populations

•Discover how maps are organised

•Find out the climates on different islands and how this impacts life there.

English

In English this term we will be studying the famous tragedy 'Macbeth' by William Shakespeare. We will be covering a variety of writing genres using this text as a stimulus including newspaper reports, internal monologues and biographies. We will also be recapping key grammar terminology to support the children's preparation for end of year assessments.

Maths

We will continue to consolidate our arithmetic skills this term, practising strategies for using all four operations when calculating with whole numbers, fractions and decimals. We will also be applying our mathematical skills to solve problems involving ratio, algebra and units of measurement.

As Mathematicians we will:

•Convert between decimals, fractions and percentages

•Use algebra to identify rules and solve equations with missing values

•Understand how to convert between different units of measurement

•Find the area, perimeter and volume of shapes.
