In Autumn Term 1 we are using our areas of scientific enquiry to investigate light. We will be asking scientific questions and identifying the different types of enquiries we can use to answer them. We will also discover whether light travels in straight lines and test the way we see light. We will be recording our predictions and findings in a variety of ways including through drawings and diagrams.
In Autumn Term 2 our focus scientific enquiry is fair testing. Within our Electricity unit, we will explore how changing different variables in a circuit affect it. E.g. How will the number of batteries affect the brightness of the bulb? The children will carry out various investigations, observe the affects, record their results and evaluate their investigations.
Please see the link for our curriculum overview to view an outline of the learning that will take place for Year 6 throughout this upcoming term. There will be multiple opportunities for children to immerse, engage, develop and apply their knowledge and skills throughout a whole host of focuses within the wider curriculum.
PE - Our PE day is on a Tuesday. On this day, children can come into school wearing their PE kit.
We are all looking forward to a fun, jam packed term with lots and lots of learning going on!
Home Learning will be issued at the beginning of term and consist of tasks based around English, Maths and Curiosity about or current topic. Children should aim to complete one task from each area. These can be brought in to be shared with the class when completed/ photos can be shared via their portfolios on Class Dojo. The term's spelling patterns and words will be tested on at the end of term via a dictation task.
As a school, we use Class Dojo to communicate and inform parents and carers about the learning experiences of our children, as well as important information and updates within the school. If you have any worries, concerns or questions, please feel free to contact us through Class Dojo or speak to us on the playground.
