This half term year 6 have been working hard on a variety of curriculum areas.
We have continued to learn about evolution in science and the impact of human behaviour on other organisms on the planet.
In maths we have learnt how to find the area and perimeter of rectilinear shapes, triangles and parallelograms. We have also made sure that we have revisited anything we were unsure about from our time during home learning, including finding percentages of amounts and converting fractions, decimals and percentages.
We have written a fantasy story in English based around the idea of finding a prehistoric creature, linking to our science theme. We have also written a formal letter based upon the book Holes by Louis Sachar which we have been studying in Guided Reading.
Our geography topic has been based on Fair Trade this half term and the children have been learning about how this organisation is working for fair pay and conditions for farmers who provide our chocolate, bananas and other imported crops. We have linked our art to last half term’s topic of America and are studying the work of North American photographer Ansel Adams.
In PE we have been doing a variety of socially distanced team games.
