  LEARNING IN ACTION

PE

Year 6 children will have two sessions of PE each week. Please ensure the children have all their PE kit , including tracksuits and trainers, suitable for both indoor and outdoor lessons. When the children are swimming (autumn term: 6S Autumn 1 6N Autumn 2), they are able to come dressed in their school tracksuits. We will also be introducing the 'daily mile' into our daily routine so try to remember some trainers every day.

ART/DESIGN TECHNOLOGY

In art this term, the children will be exploring the techniques used by artists in pencil sketching. They will then develop and refine their own sketching skills and make detailed observational drawings of shoes. They will then use what they have learnt to create a 3D clay sculpture of a shoe. Later in the term for their Design Technology unit, they will explore how slippers have been made and how designs have changed over the years. They will learn how to combine materials using a range of stitches and try different techniques to embellish slipper designs. By the end of the unit, they will have designed and made their own slippers and  fingers crossed will hopefully be in the Dragon's Den showcasing their designs to possible investors.

ICT

In the autumn term the children will be learning all about Kodu programming.

RE

Throughout the year the children will be focusing on two main religions in religious education lessons - Christianity and Hinduism. They will learn about the festivals, religious practices, explore their own beliefs and discuss key questions in depth with their peers. In the first half of the autumn term we will be exploring how Hindus show commitment to their religion and how this may influence their daily life.

 

SCIENCE

In the autumn term, the Year 6 will be learning all about Living things and their habitats. In this unit, they will find out about the classification system used today and be creating new species - applying all they have learnt about the characteristics of different plants and animals. Following on from this, the children will be learning all about the human body and learning about: the blood, the circulatory system and the nutrition and exercise needed for a healthy body.

 

HISTORY/GEOGRAPHY

 In geography, year 6 will be exploring different world biomes and after half term, the children will be learning all about the Saxons.
