Year 6 - Aslan & Gryffindor

YEAR 6 - ASLAN & GRYFFINDOR

CURRICULUM FOR SUMMER 2

This half term we will focus on Geography. We will be exploring the Earth's greatest natural disasters and extreme weather phenomena, from raging tropical storms to violent erupting volcanoes to terrifying towering tsunamis.

AS READERS 

We will continue to read the text ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar, while continuing to build core reading skills including vocabulary and word meaning in context, inference, prediction, retrieval and summary.

AS WRITERS 

We will build on our writing skills and become more cohesive and sophisticated writers by producing texts that are engaging and appropriate for the intended audience. Children will write both fiction and non-fiction pieces of extended writing. Using ‘Holes’ as inspiration, we will write a descriptive narrative with an internal monologue to describe how Stanley felt as he trudged across the scorching-hot desert in search of Zero. We will be linking our non-fiction writing to our geography topic to write a newspaper report about the devasting effects of the extreme weather in Australia.

AS MATHEMATICIANS 

In maths this half term, we are going to be exploring new concepts through projects and investigations. We will be exploring the Fibonacci sequence and how it is used in real life. We will investigate ways to calculate the age of the tree. We will learn how to draw pie charts accurately and discover the meaning of the ‘nth’ term. We will also design and build structures with marshmallows and spaghetti.

AS SCIENTISTS 

Our topic this half term will be 'Healthy Bodies’. We will explore how to keep our bodies healthy. We will learn all about nutrition, the importance of exercise, our hearts and more. We will investigate how water and nutrients are transported in the circulatory system. We will consider the impact that diet, exercise, and drugs have on our bodies and they function.

SPECIALIST SUBJECTS 

Children have fortnightly DT and Spanish lessons on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Specialist teachers teach these subjects. 

In DT, the children will continue to learn about mechanical systems that use cams, pulleys, and gears.

In Spanish, the children will continue to learn about the main festivals in Spain and begin to recognise questions. Following on from this, the children will extend their learning to the theme of holidays. They will research holiday destinations in Spanish-speaking countries and apply the language they know to describe holiday pictures and write holiday postcards.

PE 

Lessons will continue to take place on Thursdays. This term, pupils will be learning tennis, volleyball and rounders. Please ensure pupils have the correct PE kit each week. 

HOME LEARNING 

Please continue to read regularly with your child at home, as reading regularly will help your child’s vocabulary knowledge, spelling and writing skills. Furthermore, we ask that you encourage your child to learn their multiplication tables up to 12. This is an ongoing expectation until your child can confidently recall them in a mixed order and using inverse operations. (Times Tables Rock Stars should be accessed to help them).
