Year Six: Brian Clough and Jesse Boot

In maths we are studying measurements. We will be investigating perimeter, area and volume. The children will be building on their pre-existing knowledge of area and perimeter, to explore the area of triangles and parallelograms. Additionally, we will be delving into the realm of 3D shapes, to enable the children to measure volume. This will provide the opportunity to discuss the difference between volume and capacity.

Geography will be a brilliant opportunity for the children to investigate and research more about where they live:  The United Kingdom (UK). Our focus will be coast lines, meaning the children will learn to use atlases to not only read more about the locations of different countries, regions and cities, but also the geographical characteristics of the UK (such as, hills, mountains, coasts and rivers). Finally, the children will use their research skills to find out about the history of an area in the UK.

Religious Education (RE) will be a chance to reflect on the words and principles that different cultures and religions hold. The RE curriculum is inclusive. Therefore, the children will discuss and explore non-religious views. Then the children will acknowledge the principles of the people that follow the Christian, Sikh and Islamic faiths.

In science, we are going to Identify and name the main parts of the human circulatory system, and describe the function of the heart, blood vessels and blood. Furthermore, the children will learn the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way their body functions. The children will learn important skills, such as learning to find and measure their pulse. At the bottom of the page, is the knowledge organiser the children will use.

Children are expected to be in full school uniform every day.

Swimming will be on Mondays. Before the children come to school, they are expected to wear their swimming clothes under their uniform, to maximise the time children have in the pool.

PE will be on Tuesdays. The children can bring their kit in a bag and they will be given the time to change before and after the lesson.

Here’s the painting that’s the inspiration for the work we’ll be doing this term:
