Welcome to the Year 6 class page! With Year 6 SATs only a few months away in May, the Spring term has so far been quite a challenging one for all of us. Our topic this half term is Blood Heart and all of our writing and Science will be based upon the heart, our blood and the human circulatory system – for more details see the Year 6 curriculum overview.
We’ll start the term by inspecting a model of a human heart examining the veins, arteries and chambers up close. They all work hard to move blood around our bodies. We’ll learn about William Harvey who was fascinated with anatomy and answer questions such as, ‘Why do people give blood?’ and ‘How can I keep my heart healthy?’
We’ll be reading Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s The Girl of Ink and Stars, a ‘magical tale full of fire and adventure and heart’. In Maths we’ll investigate the properties of shapes as well as interpreting a variety of graphs and charts. We’ll also complete our work on algebra.
PE will be on Thursdays and Home Learning will be set and tested on Fridays.
