Year 6

During the first half of the Autumn Term, we will be exploring the exciting and unpredictable geography of the world, focusing on how the weather and climate change have impacted on a variety of regions.

We will be investigating how natural disasters occur and the geographical significance of climate change. We will also examine living things and think about the ways that scientists classify and define animals and plants.

In English, we will be exploring the catastrophic events of the 2004 tsunami in the Indian Ocean which affected many countries and the lives of millions of people across the world. We will be using this as a stimulus for writing diaries and newspaper reports; honing our language for the appropriate audience and levels of   formality. In Mathematics, we will begin by consolidating our calculation and geometry skills with a focus on the four operations and angles, perimeter and area.

In Computing, we are exploring the possible benefits and uses of the internet and thinking about how technology enhances our lives. We will also be considering some of the possible associated risks.

In Science, we will be learning about living things and the reasons for the classification of plants and animals. We will create our own classification keys and put them to the test in our local habitats.

In RSE, we will be exploring how the body changes as we grow and looking at ways to develop and maintain health minds and bodies.

In Art this first half-term we will be focusing on refining our sketching and printing skills and in our Music lessons we will continue to develop our singing techniques to include pitch, tone, volume and the use of singing in rounds.
