Year 6 timetables

This term we are learning about: 

 

Maths

Each week, we are completing some work from different areas of maths. We practise our CLICs and SAFEs which focus on different calculation methods and our knowledge of all mathematical areas on a Monday. Tuesday focuses on number place value; we will need to know about numbers to ten million. Wednesdays focus on calculation methods, we are revising column methods currently. Thursdays are for fractions and geometry. We are looking at equivalent fractions and how to simplify fractions, leading to adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators. We will also learn how to multiply and divide fractions. Then Fridays are for measurement where we are looking at how to convert between different units of measurement and apply this understanding to different problems with different contexts. 

 

Reading 

Skimming and scanning techniques to find the information quickly. How to infer meaning from the text that is not obvious and how to word answers to questions more effectively to get more marks. We are analysing chapters from The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas to help us to answer questions from different reading skills.  

 

Writing 

We are looking at using a range of writing codes independently. We are revisiting relative clauses and how to add extra information to sentences using parenthesis. We are covering different genres of writing and aim to expand our vocabulary range based on the text, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne. 

 

Science 

Our topic this half term is materials and their properties. This includes looking at the solubility of different materials, filtration, evaporation and dissolving. We are using our knowledge of solids, liquids and gases. 

 

Creative Curriculum 

Our topic this term is We'll Meet Again which is based around World War Two. We are looking at how the war started, key events and historical figures from the time and how life was affected. This includes looking at The Blitz, The Battle of Britain, rationing, evacuation and much more!
