6H Mrs Haines

Hello 6H! Welcome to your new class page. Isn't it fancy? Here you can find out what we're learning about this term in all your subjects. You can also use the links provided to access helpful websites for Maths and English.

 

English

 

Giddy up year 6! We're racing into the Spring Term with our narrative poetry unit. Let me introduce you to The Highwayman. You will begin the unit by exploring crime of the 17th century and finding out all about the famous highwayman, Dick Turpin. Moving on from this, you will be performing scenes from The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. Who will play our beloved Bess? our jealous and hateful Tim the Ostler? Or our renegade, the highwayman? You will express your knowledge through a diary entry as Tim the Ostler, and a newspaper report, reporting the tragic death of Bess. 

 

Maths

Place value, x and ÷ including decimals, use of + - x ÷ to solve ‘real life’ problems including money, fractions, decimals, percentages, ratio and proportion, handling data, shape and space as well as co-ordinates, working out the perimeter and area of a shape, measures including conversion of one unit to another, properties, pattern and sequences in numbers. Please brush up on your times tables - the quicker you can recall them, the more efficient you will be at using them to solving problems!

 

Science

This term you will be exploring classification. Love learning about gross fungus, micro-organisms and cute animals? This is the unit for you! As we dive further into the unit, you will be creating your own investigations to see how fungus grows - good luck!

Christmas

Learn all about Jesus' birth story through the fascinating artwork of artist He Qi. You will be learning about the story through St Matthew's and St Luke's gospel accounts and will discuss St John's prologue. You will then create your own impression of the prologue in Art. 

 

Geography:

Through our ‘Let’s Blow Something Up’ theme, you will discover more about the make-up of the Earth and find out about its different layers. You will learn about tectonic plates and how volcanoes are formed. Using atlases and world maps, you will locate volcanoes around the world and discover the ring of fire.

 

Art:

No it isn't the Ice Age, but we are huddling up in our caves and communicating with cave paintings! As we discover more about the different periods of the Stone Age, you will explore mixing techniques and collage effects to create a picture of the very famous, very mysterious and very, very old Stonehenge.

Through our continuing ‘Let’s Blow Something Up’ theme, you will learn about the artist Margaret Godfrey and create pictures of the inside of volcanoes in her particular style.

 

PE

Get ready to work as a team and jump...you are going to be learning volleyball skills. Get those feet moving and enjoy our Stone Age dance too!

 

Games

This term, you're lucky enough to have Gaelic football session with a professional coach! Remember to bring a plastic carrier bag for your muddy trainers.
