Welcome to the year 6 page - Spring term 2019
In English we are looking at ‘The Midnight Fox’ and studying the life of the polar explorer Ernest Shackleton. Both of these texts will provide exciting opportunities for our writing.
This term we will be focusing on further developing our reasoning and mastery skills through the use of TARA maths. We well be applying our math knowledge and skill to investigate, prove or disprove mathematic statements and calculations.
In science we will be looking at Classification, Inheritance and Adaptation, as well as how the human body works.
All of year 6 will be working on this approach that looks to build resilience in our leaners, concentrating on how we learn and what active learning feels like.
Games takes place on Mondays (outdoors) when we will be playing tag rugby, so outdoor PE kits are essential. In addition we will be running ‘The Daily Mile’ on a regular basis. We will continue to swim during on alternate PPA weeks.
Our cross-curricular theme this term is 'Shackleton'. This will look at aspects of polar exploration and the life and times of this charismatic leader.
RE / PSHE
Our chosen theme in RE is difficult choices and looks at what differing regions say to us when life gets hard.
