Year 6 Summer Term
This term in English we will be looking at journalistic writing, with the aim of writing our own newspaper article about the Boscastle flooding of 2004. We will also be using past and present tense to write an effective flashback and writing recounts on Britain’s Got Talent. We will be doing lots of writing this term to make sure the children all cover the standards expected of the year group!
This term we will be revising a number of topics such as: fractions, percentages of amounts, area and perimeter, time, ratio and proportion, shape and calculating using the four operations in word problems.
This term we will be covering our topic of light, this will include lots of investigations about how light travels, the angles of light and how we can use light.
We will be continuing our topic of the Mayan Civilisation, how people lived, the roles they played in society, and the achievements during this time period culminating in the eventual decline of that civilisation.
Our topic of South America continues and looks at trade and industry throughout the country and lastly, an in depth study of a specific South American country. We will also be learning about the Brazilian festivals and rainforests.
Art and Design
This term our art and design has been lots of fun! We have been looking at different styles of painting and also key skills needed to draw.
World issues have been our focus this term, for example; the plight of refugees. We will also be covering Sex Education after half term.
Turn It On are continuing to work with the children this term and will be creating Top Trump cards as well as making a Year Book of wonderful memories!
Maths and English homework is given out every Thursday, and is due in on the following Tuesday. Mental Maths homework is given out every Friday, and is due back in on the following Friday. After half term, project work will be set instead of this.
Spelling tests happen every Monday morning and sentences are due in that day too. Spelling tests will continue until the end of the year.
Home School Books are checked every Monday, with the expectation that there are at least 4 pieces of reading logged for every week and that a parent has signed that week’s page.
The main focus after half term will be the Year 6 production. A huge amount of time and effort is spent ensuring the children put on a fantastic performance. Children will soon be auditioning for different parts and we are hoping for some solo singers too!
