Welcome to Year 6 Class 13
Class Teacher - Miss Edwards
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Jackson
In Autumn Term 2, we will be studying Frozen Kingdom
In English, we will be learning about the Titanic and writing about the disaster in various genres including a newspaper report and a chronological report. Also, we will imagine that we are Scott of the Antarctic (Robert Falcon Scott) and write diary entries about our expedition in 1911-1912 to the South Pole.
Also, we will be looking at Haiku and personification poetry and writing our own based on polar animals and the Northern Lights.
This half term we will be looking at the area and perimeter of rectangles, squares, irregular shapes, triangles and parallelograms. We will be converting between fractions, decimals and percentages, including simplifying fractions.
Also, we will be recognising ratio and proportion in context. We will be working on our reasoning and problem solving skills; solving word problems based on the four rules of number.
Firstly, we will identify the position and significance of various features of a world map, including lines of latitude and longitude and the Arctic and Antarctic Circle. Following on from this, we will learn about world time zones and work out differences in countries based on the Prime Meridian line.
Plus, we will name and locate some of the world’s deserts.
During our Science lessons, we will continue to look at the classification of animals and sort them into groups using identification keys. Later on in the half term, we will focus on light and shadow, exploring the way that light behaves and how we see things around us.
In our Art lessons, we will be researching Inuit art work before creating our own detailed drawings and clay sculptures based on the Inuit techniques.
In computing, we will create informative PowerPoints, using custom animations, on icy features of the Polar Regions.
Class 13 will be participating in the programme Wellbeing Through Sport run by Ed Start which is aimed at nurturing the positive mental health and wellbeing of pupils through physical activities; the programme helps develop pupil’s understanding of the core life skills needed to promote positive mental health. Covering areas such as empathy, conflict resolution, assertiveness and emotional awareness, pupils will not only be equipped with the life skills needed to strengthen their wellbeing, but also complete at least 30 minutes of physical activity at the same time.
