Welcome to Year 6   
Our Learning
 
Geography
 
Our main topic for the next term is Route 66. We will look at the famous route across America and the different sides of American culture and society that can be seen along the journey. To start with we will revise our general geographical knowledge including different hemispheres and lines of longitude & latitude before focusing in on the United States of America.
 
Science
In science, we will be learning about the circularity system. We will learn about the different components and functions of the parts of blood and how the respiratory and circulatory system work together.  In term 6, our topic will be Living things- focusing on classification and  micro-organisms.
 

Homework

Homework will be uploaded onto Google Classroom on a Wednesday and will be due in the following Wednesday.  

Each week the children must complete their; 

  • weekly spellings – these will be given out on a grid for the term. 
  • a short English task 
  • a short maths revision task 

In addition to the weekly homework, it is expected that all children will read on a regular basis and are responsible for selecting and changing their books regularly and should be encouraged to do so. 

MyMaths activities will be set and the children are reminded to use TTRS. You are also welcome to explore the MyMaths site and children can complete any ‘lessons’ they wish; this is particularly useful if they feel they need extra practise in a particular area.
