Overviews: Year 6 Summer Term
Please see our SATs presentation 2022 below:
Summer 1 2022
This half term in Year 6, our topic focus is Geography, where we will be travelling to the far ends of the Earth and answering the question ‘What are the Polar Regions and are they in danger?’ Linking this with our Science and English lessons, we will be looking at exploration research, and finding out why we can see the Northern Lights. This week we were able to see a simulation of them on the ceiling of our classrooms, which was a great introduction to the topic.
In English, we will be using ‘Shackleton’s journey’ to write an non-chronological report and a newspaper article based on his expedition. In Maths, we are really focussing on Arithmetic, the four operations (Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division) and preparing ourselves for the SATs coming up in May. All of the children are ready for this challenge and we can’t wait for them to show how hard they have worked this year!
Year 6 will continue with indoor PE on a Tuesday and outdoor PE on a Friday.
Spring 2 2022 Update
Our topic focus for this half term is History, where we will be studying slavery and asking ‘Has slavery been abolished?’ In English, we will be writing a persuasive letter and a speech based on our book ‘Henry’s Freedom Box’. During Maths lesson, we will be looking at measure (area and perimeter) and revising learning from all of Key Stage 2 in preparation for SATs in May.
We are focussing on keeping ourselves healthy, both mentally and physically in PSHCE. Year 6 will continue to do indoor PE on a Tuesday (gymnastics) and outdoor PE on a Friday (tennis). Please note the change from Wednesdays to Fridays.
