Meet The Teachers
SPRING TERM 2
MATHS – DECIMALS AND PERCENTAGES
We will revise numbers to 2 decimal places before moving on to using thousandths to create those with 3 decimal places. Our autumn term maths work will be revised as we convert between fractions and decimals, before learning about percentages and how they are also related. This term, we will spend more time using bar models to answer reasoning problems. Daily arithmetic practice, including times tables, will keep those key maths skills fresh in our minds.
ENGLISH – CLASSIC FICTION
All children in Year 6 will be encouraged to read a variety of classic fiction texts and we will read ‘The Wizard of Oz’ all together. Using this text, we will write newspaper reports, write sections of the story from the perspective of different characters, and create a new chapter with our own magical characters. Finally, we will watch the film and compare it to the book.
TOPIC – EXTREME EARTH
This term, we will look at different parts of the world and their climates. We will learn about the causes and effects of extreme temperatures, dramatic natural events and wild weather across the globe.
SCIENCE – THE CIRCULATORY SYSTEM
Our science unit begins with us thinking about healthy bodies and how the circulatory system transports essential nutrients to our vital organs. We will plan and carry out investigations into the effects of different forms of exercise on our heart rates.
Also this half term:
RE and French with an Easter focus;
DT, PSHE, PE, COMPUTING and MUSIC.
