Year 6 Autumn 1
In English, we have been learning about ‘The Lady of Shalott’ and have been practising our writing skills by writing character descriptions, letters and an alternative story.
In maths, our focus has been place value and the four operations. We have incorporated fluency, reasoning and problem solving in all aspects of those strands.
In science, we have been learning about how to classify living things and studying the adaptations of plants. We started off by understanding how we can classify plants into different categories including vascular and non-vascular plants. Then we learned about seed dispersal and how plants reproduce. Most recently, we have studied how plants adapt to different environments and the adaptations they have to survive.
In geography our focus has been coastal erosion. We have explored this using our maths skills and have created a case study based on the Holderness coast.
As we will be learning about the water cycle and rivers when we return, we’ve uploaded some lessons to ensure you are equipped with the skills you will need.
Kahoot is a website where you can play fun quizzes and try to gain the top score. Have a go at this weeks challenge.
