Year 6 - Pankhurst & Spurgeon
These are some of the things we will be learning during the Spring term
Our work this term is focused upon 'Out of Africa'. Our work this term is focused upon the amazing continent of Africa. We will be learning about Nelson Mandela: his life and great influence on the lives of so many. Alongside this we will learn about the rich variety of culture and wildlife across this vast continent.
The focus for the first few weeks in Literacy will be writing diary entries. The children will be putting themselves into the shoes of different characters who appear in the books that we will be reading in class. We will also look at autobiographies and biographies.
In our maths lessons the children will continue to work on their number skills: identifying factors by using divisibility rules and converting vulgar fractions to decimal numbers. The will continue to use the operations: addition, subtraction, division and multiplication for whole numbers and fractions. All of our number work will involve solving word problems or ‘real-life’ maths stories.
In geometry, data and measure lessons the children will be calculating the area of rectangles and using pi to calculate the circumference of a circle. They will continue to learn about and draw accurately 2D shapes, such as hexagons and triangles. This will incorporate measuring accurately and using a pair of compasses. The children will also use timetables and calendars to solve problems.
In Physical Education over the term we will complete a number of units of study. We will be working on Multi-skills for athletics, cricket, basketball and tennis. This will involve a range of activities to develop the children’s agility, stamina, co-ordination and balance. These skills are essential in all sports. These lessons will be outside, weather permitting. Please ensure that you child has suitable P.E kit for this e.g. tracksuit top and bottoms.
PLEASE SEND YOUR CHILD INTO SCHOOL WITH THEIR PE KIT ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY
