Autumn term topic- Are we all equal?

 

 

Welcome to Linmere class.  We hope you've had a lovely summer holidays and we can't wait to welcome you back. 

 

Literacy

One of the first things the children will be writing when they get into Year 6 is a letter of application for the job roles.

We will then be looking at the story of Hansel and Gretel by Neil Gaiman and using this to help us create a newspaper report. 

Numeracy 

Initially we will be focusing on place value and learning about numbers up to 10 million and to four decimal places. Ma6/2.1 They will learn about patterns in numbers and this will lead on to us looking at addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Ma6/2.2

Science 

In Science the first topic we will focus on is animals including humans. SC6/2.2 In this topic we will focus on learning more about the human body including bones, blood, organs and how it all works. The children will look at this in detail and this will help us when moving onto our second topic of Evolution. SC6/2.3

Topic 

Our Autumn term topic is 'Are we all equal?" Within this topic we will look at different places around the world .We will also do some work linked to Parliament week on w/c 1st November and work linked to Black History month in October.

Homework

Children will be provided with a Homework grid, where they will complete a piece of Homework once a week. This will be available through the google classroom accounts and should be emailed back to the teacher on This email address is being protected from spambots.

Numeracy

Initially we will be focusing fractions, decimals and percentages.  Ma6/2.2

 

Science 

In science our first unit will be evolution and adaptations. In the second unit we will look at classification of animals and start designing our own keys. 

This is a great topic and the children love learning about animals and habitats.

 

Topic

In topic this term we will be learning all about 'What makes Cheshire special?'  One of our main focuses within this unit will be geography and the children will look at where Cheshire is in England, the UK and within the world. 

We will be looking at the physical and human aspects of geography in Cheshire with this supporting the children in writing their own tourist information leaflets. 

Later in the topic we will move onto looking at a different place in the world (St Lucia) and comparing it to Cheshire.
