Overview and Home Learning
This term we are learning about why jungles are so wet and deserts so dry. We will start by observing, describing and explaining the pattern of climate in the UK. We will then identify and begin to offer reasons for the different types of climate around the world. We will compare and contrast the temperature and rainfall data in different climates and construct a climate graph. Finally, we will explore and explain why tropical rainforests have so much rainfall as well as explain why deserts are the driest inhabited places in the world and explore how plants and animals have adapted to the climate.
This term we are learning about how climate change is affecting the world. We will start by learning why communities in The Gambia are being affected by changes in weather patterns and the impact this is having on the people. We will then evaluate a range of evidence and make judgements as to the impact on the people in Southeast Australia due to weather patterns. We will understand why some coastal communities are having to make flood resilience plans in order to cope with the changes in sea levels and explore how global warming is affecting weather patterns around the world and evaluate its impact in different places. Finally, we will explore why countries around the world have acted to reduce global warming and whether this is effective.
Our PE lessons this half term will be on Friday, please make sure you wear PE kit in to school on these days.
Home Learning will be issued on a Friday to be completed and kept at home. They will be given a weekly LSCWC spelling pattern sheet and activity sheet along with a Maths or English activity sheet to be completed in pencil or blue pen.
Although Y6 are no longer using the Renaissance Reading scheme, they are still expected to read at least 2 / 3 times a week at home.
We are all looking forward to another fun, jam packed term with lots and lots of learning going on!
