Year 6 - Miss Allemann
Welcome back after Half Term! I hope you all had a great break and had the chance to have lots of fun!! It is your last term here at Mickleton, make the most of it and enjoy what time you have left at Primary School.
Welcome to Summer Term 2 with Class 6. Please find lots of information about our class and the work that we have been doing so far this year.
This half term we will be looking at Alice In Wonderland. We will be exploring play scripts and how to build characters. We will also be looking at nonsense poems such as Jaberwocky by Lewis Caroll. We will also be practicing our end of year production.
Year 6 will challenge themselves through the themes of measurement (area,volume and perimeter), addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions and percentages, algebra and shape and space problems. We will carry on working on our problem solving skills throughout this half term and start to think about transition work.
Our Topic this term is Raging Rivers. We will be looking at how rivers are formed and the water cycle, linking it to our local rivers.
Science: Children will build on their knowledge and understanding of different systems within the body. They will research the parts and functions of the circulatory system. They will focus on how nutrients are transported around the human body. Children will explore how a healthy lifestyle supports the body to function and how different types of drugs affect the body.
