Year 6 Ten for Ten – Part 3

Look at the front of your booklet to see whether you have booklet 1, 2 or 3. Then use the same numbered answer booklet to check your answers.

Think about the mistakes you made – what concepts do you need more experience of? Make a list and use the ABACUS maths text book, Maths Shed or the the websites listed on your home-learning letter to practise these skills.

 

Centre of the Cell

Year 6 set visited Queen Mary’s University and visited the  Centre of the Cell, which is a science based education centre located in a working biochemical laboratory. Their aim is to stimulate interest, raise awareness and inspire future scientists.

The children had the opportunity to watch films about the human body, participate in a workshop and play interactive games. The classes thought it was one of the best trips ever!

Spring Term 2020

We are looking forward to the new term of learning in Year 6. Our new topic is Explorers and has geography and science focus. We will begin by learning about polar exploration, particularly expeditions to the Antarctic. Our Literacy learning will be based around ‘ICE TRAP!’ which is the story of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s incredible expedition to this continent. In Geography, we will be developing map skills, using atlases and interpreting aerial photographs and satellite images to understand the polar regions and particular aspects of environmental change.

In Science, we will look at how animals have adapted to their environment and how this has led to evolution. We will be going on two curriculum-linked trips this term to support this learning.

Please note: in Maths, our learning will focus on fractions, decimals and percentages this half term. It is important that your child knows their multiplication tables and the related division facts. Please talk to us if you need ideas for supporting your child with this.

Please see our curriculum document here: Year 6 – Spring Curriculum 2020
