Year 6 is led by Mike Corrie and Nat Norris and is supported by Caroline Hindle, Sarah Clarke and Carole Quill who cover PPA time for Year 6 teachers on Thursday afternoons each week.
In English we are working on our Charles Darwin biographies where we will be identifying features of a biography, researching Darwin's life and work and drafting and proofing our own biographies. We will also be creating healthy eating leaflets as we learn how to take care of our bodies as we grow up during our PSHE lessons. We will explore a variety of genres of writing during our guided reading and learn how to retrieve, infer and predict confidently.
In Maths we will be revisiting addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, identifying misconceptions and exploring informal and formal methods. The children will learn how to do long multiplication and long division as well as looking at Maths investigations and Maths mastery.
Due to Covid 19 we have had to redesign our outdoor ed activities. This year we will be combining PSHE, Maths, Science and English during our visits around the local area. We will plan a balanced meal, take observational drawings like Darwin, write a hypothesis and prove or disprove it and immerse ourselves in our class book through re-enactment.
The rest of our curriculum can be seen in our year group booklet.
