Welcome to Year 6
Teacher: Miss Jones and Mr Williams
TA: Mrs Dallas
We will continue to focus on all of our" National Curriculum Objectives "Age Related Expectations". We will read I am Malala and use it to inspire our writing and answer comprehension questions based on this text. We will develop our persuasive language when writing a persuasive letter encouraging someone to change their mind about a subject. We will then move on to a narrative which uses suspense to intrigue and hook the reader.
We will follow the White Rose Small Steps and use opportunities to work independently and in pairs or groups, to develop our mathematical understanding. We will use concrete manipulatives and abstract representations to support our knowledge and understanding. This term we will also look at developing skills in fractions, decimals and percentages while revising arithmetic and reasoning type questions.
In science, we will be looking at the theory of evolution and the work of Charles Darwin. We will look at inheritance and how and why genes are passed down through generations.
Please see our Topic Webs for information on all of our curriculum areas.
Our PE is Friday.
We look forward to working with all of the children in Y6 and their families, on this final year of primary school.
