Year 6: Crimson and Magenta

Year 6

This half term, in Literacy, pupils will read the book ‘Pig Heart Boy’ by Malorie Blackman and use it as inspiration for the fiction and non-fiction writing we have planned. Pupils will learn to write a number of different text types, including non-chronological reports, balanced arguments, fictional narrative and persuasive letters, all inspired by the context of the story, which has already provided us with a lot of issues to discuss, such as animal rights, animal testing, transplantations and xenotransplantation. To deepen their knowledge and understanding of these topics, pupils will carry out research into these issues, using laptops as well as printed resources.

In Numeracy, pupils will continue their focus on fractions, subsequently leading into ratios and then data handling. They will also continue to practise solving multi-step word problems including money and different types of measurement. As always, mental calculation strategies and reasoning activities will remain a focus for all pupils. Thank you to parents and carers for all you have done to support their pupils in their learning – your support at home has really aided pupils’ progress throughout the year so far.

Within Science, we will be looking at the circulatory system of humans and how the blood transports oxygen and nutrients to the cells. Pupils will focus on the physical structure of the cardiovascular organs and their properties, while also examining how their health impacts our lives. They will use this knowledge to carry out a variety of investigations and create extended pieces of writing.

In Humanities, pupils will look at features of physical and human geography. They will focus on how plate tectonics influence earthquakes, volcanoes and mountains and how these are all interlinked. Pupils will also study how humans interact with the natural world and how they have settled and adapted their living to the different areas of the world.

PE for Year 6 continues on a Friday afternoon so please ensure that your child’s winter PE kit is in school on that day.

We cannot wait to see the wonderful work pupils will produce this term! Be sure to keep an eye on the school’s website for updates and Wow Work. It’s going to be a wonderful year. If you have any questions about anything Year 6 related, please feel free to speak to a member of the Year 6 team.

It's been another eventful day with loads of problem solving challenges indoors due to the rain but it's been great fun. We can't believe there's only one sleep left until we're home again! It's been a blink.
