Year 6: Outstanding Owls & Excellent Eagles

Our Outstanding Owls are taught by Mrs Tamkin and Excellent Eagles are taught Miss Warren.

 

Overview by subject

English: In writing, we are focusing on the video clip 'The Piano' by Aidan Gibbons: the children are working towards writing their own flashback narratives. They will also explore the picture book 'The Red Tree' and will be analysing poetry in order to create their own poem at the end of the term.

Maths: In Autumn 2, children will be continuing to revise fractions. The next Maths unit will be Geometry: Position and Direction. 

Science: This term the children will be learning about Light. They will discover the way in which we see, how light bends, how it reflects and how it refracts. They will also explore the colour spectrum and understand how we see colour. 

Art and Design: In Art, we will be exploring how to draw people in action. We will research artists who show motion/ movement within their pieces, use digital collaging to represent images moving and develop out sketching and water colour skills to create a final piece.

Design and Technology: This term, the Year 6s will be working towards creating a detailed shadow puppet. They will explore the history of shadow puppets, choose materials and skills needed when planning their shadow puppet and work towards creating a shadow puppet theatre show.

Computing: This term, the children will explore the importance of Online Safety. They will also be learning about web pages and will work towards creating their own web page based on our Science top 'Light'.
