Autumn  Term

Our Autumn Term topic will be…

‘Extreme Earth’

This topic is based on learning about extreme weather around the world. In this Geography based topic, we will learn to locate places on world maps and look at how different climates contribute to extreme weather phenomena. The PSHCE element will be learning about disaster relief and how worldwide communities help those in need. 

In Science this term, we would have two topics:

Evolution and Inheritance.

We will be learning to: recognise that living things have changed over time; recognise that living things produce offspring of the same kind; identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution.

Living Things & Their Habitats

This unit of work will build on pupils’ learning about grouping living things in Year 4 by looking at the classification system in more detail. Pupils will learn to describe how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including micro-organisms, plants and animals. They will also learn to give reasons for classifying plants and animals based on specific characteristics.

 The curriculum for English places emphasis on spelling, handwriting and grammar skills.

This will be reflected in lessons with pupils practising a cursive handwriting style and having weekly spellings that include similar spelling patterns. Pupils will be given time in school to practise their handwriting and to complete Word Study activities to help them learn their new spellings. They will not be formally tested on them as research has shown this to be an ineffective way of improving spelling for many pupils.

 Please encourage your child to learn their spellings and practise their handwriting.

In English lessons, we will be developing our writing of both fiction and non-fiction.

 This term we will be having whole class reading comprehension sessions where pupils will be given a range of visual and written texts and will give written responses to questions based on them.

Please encourage your child to read and complete reading journal activities at home as this will help to develop their understanding of texts and authors’ use of language.

In Maths in the Autumn term, we will cover Number: Place Value

· In Art, we will be using a range of mediums to create artwork in the style of Hokusai, in particular his image of the Great Wave.

Our Computing lessons will enable us to refine our internet searching skills when researching weather around the world. We will build on last years learning through using spreadsheets to handle the data we discover.

Our RE lessons will focus on The Natural World and Pilgrimage.

Home Learning

This term’s homework will consist of daily reading and a No Limits World homework task card where pupils can select tasks from a list of suggestions. Pupils can earn thrill points and parents are asked to sign their children’s loyalty cards to verify that homework has been completed.

In Year 6, we are preparing for transition to secondary school and so there might be additional homework set in addition to the reading and No Limits World tasks.

English: grammar work; spelling activities; handwriting practice; reading and journals and revision packs / tasks.

Maths: MyMaths activities; maths revision packs / tasks; learning times tables and SATS questions based on topics studied in class or the pupils’ individual targets.

Homework return day is a Wednesday.

We have started Year 6 full of enthusiasm and have been working hard and taking on new responsibilities.

In English and Topic, we have been learning all about Extreme Weather around the globe.

 

 

 

We have also been enjoying doing artwork linked to our topic.

 

 

 

In fact, we are such keen artists that we have been using our art skills for our homework too!

In Science, we have been learning about evolution and inheritance and worked as groups to produce homework tasks all about primates.

Homework

Our school's homework format means we have more choice about what we do to study at home and we can even earn rewards.

We are always encouraged to challenge ourselves to complete additional home learning activities and we are supported in becoming independent by being provided with numerous resources to extend our learning beyond the classroom.

Every Friday this half term, we will have a homework session where we will review their learning and set ourselves targets. Therefore all homework needs to be in school on a Wednesday.

And the Loyalty Card for recording our learning

We have also started our Reading Passport Challenge where we record our reading each day and earn 'miles per hour' so that we can visit virtual theme parks and ride virtual roller coasters.

  Information

All pupils are expected to bring: a water bottle, a waterproof coat, writing equipment, a school bag and plimsoles / trainers to school every day.

PE is on a Thursday and Friday.
