In English this half term, we will be continuing to work on the Highwayman poem, turning the plot into a narrative. In addition to this, we will be preparing the Year 6's for their SPAG and reading SATs and producing some non-fiction work based on a debate - keep an eye out for the topic coming soon!
In maths this half term, we will be working on angles, area and perimeter, shape and ratio. It is imperative that all children know their times tables as this will help scaffold their learning and progress. All children have login details for Math Shed and Times Table Rock Stars. These websites will help children to learn their times tables at home, as well as in school.
Children will have 2 science lessons per week and each week will focus on a particular topic. Each topic will then be revisited at certain points throughout the year in order to deepen the learning and create links between all areas of science.
This half term the children will be looking again at evolution and inheritance, the human body and healthy lifestyles and living things and their habitats.
This year, history and geography lessons will be alternated each week and, like with science, topics will be revisited at regular intervals throughout the year rather than being taught in blocks. This is to allow for deeper connections to be made and to strengthen retention in long term memory.
This term in history, we will be learning about the Victorians, Tudors and the Ancient Mayans. We will be studying their place in history, their conflicts, inventions and ways of life.
This term in geography, we will be looking at different biomes from around the world, including the freshwater biome, the marine biome and the tropical rainforest biome. This will involve looking at their locations, physical features, diversity and the processes involved in creating such areas. We will also be taking part in more of our Barwic Globetrotter experiences. This half term we will be going to Wales!
