|We will be studying ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’ by Michelle Magorian. The children will be continuing to develop their reading stamina and their ability to read independently. The children will also be answering a variety of questions in order to show their understanding, including retrieving information, answering inference questions and making predictions based on what they have read so far.||We will be using ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’ as inspiration for our writing. We will be writing in a variety of genres, including a non-fiction information page on evacuation, a setting description and a narrative.|
|Maths||Measurement – Converting Units||Measurement – Perimeter, Area and Volume||Number – Ratio|
|Solve problems involving the calculation and conversion of units of measure, using decimal notation up to three decimal places where appropriate. |
Use, read, write and convert between standard units, converting measurements of length, mass, volume and time from a smaller unit of measure to a larger unit, and vice versa, using decimal notation to up to 3dp.
Convert between miles and kilometres.
|Recognise that shapes with the same areas can have different perimeters and vice versa. |
Recognise when it is possible to use formulae for area and volume of shapes.
Calculate the area of parallelograms and triangles.
Calculate, estimate and compare volume of cubes and cuboids using standard units, including cm3, m3 and extending to other units (mm3, km3)
|Solve problems involving the relative sizes of two quantities where missing values can be found by using integer multiplication and division facts. |
Solve problems involving similar shapes where the scale factor is known or can be found.
Solve problems involving unequal sharing and grouping using knowledge of fractions and multiples.
|Science||This half-term, we will be continuing our biology topic, learning about animals including humans. By the end of the topic, children will be able to:|
|RE||Christianity and God.|
Our key question for the half term is: ‘What difference does the resurrection make to Christians?’
During this topic, pupils are expected to be able to:
Pupils will know that:
|PE||This half term, we will be doing Basketball and Dance. In Basketball, we will be introducing the sport and the key aspects such as dribbling, shooting and defensive plays in order to improve confidence within the sport. |
In dance, pupils will think about how to use movement to explore and communicate ideas and issues, and their own feelings and thoughts.
As they work, they develop an awareness of the historical and cultural origins of different dances. Pupils will focus on developing an idea or theme into dance choreography. They will work in pairs and groups using different choreographing tools to create dances e.g. formations, timing and dynamics. Pupils will have opportunities to choreograph, perform and provide feedback on dance.
|Geography||This half term, we will be studying physical geography, including volcanoes.|
By the end of this unit, children should be able to:
By the end of this unit we will be able to know more of the regular verbs in French.
|By the end of this unit of work, the children will be able to:|
|PSHE||Our topic for this half term is Family and committed relationships.|
The children will study:
|Music||This half term, the children will be using music applications on the iPads. They will explore playing the piano, drums and guitar on garage band and make their own music using live loops.|
|Computing||This term Y6 will use spreadsheets to calculate and present data. They will also use Scratch block coding program to include repetition in command. The children will also continue to discuss the importance of E-safety.|
