Year 6

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.

Weekly homework

Hello everyone,

Whilst we are learning from home, we would like to remind you that the links to the daily lessons are below and that Purple Mash is being updated regularly too. You were also given learning packs before the school holidays which we encourage you work through now. 


We don’t want you to miss out on your valuable learning so we expect you to organise your day as you would if you were in school. Start the morning with your English and maths lessons and then allocate time for reading, science and topic. Our new science topic this half term is electricity and we are learning about rivers and climate change in geography. 


We also expect you to allocate at least 20 minutes a day to read a book. There is a list of reading activities if you scroll further down this page that you can chose from. 

You have worked so hard since starting Year 6, keep going!
