The children have started their journey into year 6 well and are very excited about all the amazing things we have planned. Keep checking our class page for updates and our twitter account for regular updates on our learning journey through year 6. http://twitter.com/BHPSMansfield
Autumn Half Term 1
In English, the children will be reading Darwin's Dragons by Lindsay Galvin, which follows the imaginary adventures of Syms Covington (Darwin's assistant) who becomes stranded on one of the Galapagos islands! The story follows his remarkable discovery and this will be the inspiration for our Writing.
In Science, we will be learning about Evolution and Inheritance where - again - the children will learn about Charles Darwin! We will look at the work of other scientists too, such as Mary Anning, and explore how early fossil discoveries led to our improved understanding of evolution. Following on from this, the children will learn how offspring inherit characteristics from their parents.
In Maths, we will begin the year consolidating Place Value and Four Operations before applying these skills to deeper thinking questions. In Fluency sessions, the children will focus on honing their key skills and improving their speed and accuracy.
