Year 6 Curriculum MapSpring 2 Topic - The World Around Us
Building Learning Power:
Our learning muscles will be stretched this term as we focus on Revising the skills that we have previously acquired, therefore, it is important to make links between different areas of the curriculum.
We will be Empathising with those people around the world who are victims of injustice. Our Reasoning muscle will also be stretched by ensuring that we justify and support our responses in all the curriculum.
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! For the remainder of this term, Year Six will be honing their journalistic writing skills; paying attention to the features of newspaper reports. From identifying the differences between tabloid and broadsheet newspapers, we will gain an awareness of different audiences and a better understanding of this form of media.
Following this, we will explore the relevant language used to construct formal and informal letters, ensuring that our choice of vocabulary has the optimum impact for its purpose.
Our focus for grammar and spelling this term is to consolidate our understanding of word classes (nouns, verbs, adjectives, prepositions, adverbs), prefixes and suffixes.
Furthermore, we will be consolidating our understanding of the relationship between fractions, decimals and percentages; using as many real life examples as possible. In some cases, we will be using simple formulae to express numbers algebraically and generating linear number sequences.
We will be presenting observations and data using a range of methods, including: line graphs and tables. This will allow us to implement recently acquired mathematical skills. Once gathered, this data will be analysed, allowing us to make detailed conclusions and prepare evaluations for future investigations.
Art & Design Technology
Why are some people rich and others poor? Why isn’t the world created equal? These are some of the questions we will be asking ourselves during this unit. We will aim to develop an understanding of moral attitudes, responsibility and fairness.
As part of World Book Day, we shall enjoy a storytelling performance at the end of term and dress up as characters from our favourite books.
