Welcome back for your final year of primary school, Year 6!
In English this term we will be focusing on the text Pig Heart Boy by Malorie Blackman and writing biographies and autobiographies. We will also be learning how to use a range of sentences structures and introducing colons and semi colons.
In maths we will focus on building a secure understanding of our place value in numbers to ten million. This will include being able to read, write, order and compare numbers, including decimals, as well as being able to round them. Following this, we will be looking at addition and subtraction, multiplication and division; solving multi step problems in context, deciding which operations to use and why. Throughout all of these, there will be a strong emphasis on independent and group reasoning and problem solving.
Our enquiry this term is all based on the big question "What makes a species successful?" This question links together two science units: living things and evolution and inheritance. Throughout this enquiry we will be classifying animals and plants, learning about micro-organisms, doing some experiments and learning all about Darwin's theory of evolution.We will also be thinking about how Darwin's theory was received by Christians at the time and whether there can be any compatibility between the two.
