Greenlands Primary

Year 6 Autumn Learning


Our focus this term is 'giving and kindness' and children will be completing lots of activities around these themes including defining what kindness is, how kindness effects others and how kindness effects yourself.


In English the children will be using the book Journey To The River Sea by Eva Ibbotson. Children will use this book as a stimulus for their writing. They will focus on exploring complex characterisation, exploring and debating key themes within a narrative, using persuasive language, and drafting and writing by describing settings, characters and atmosphere and integrating dialogue to convey character and advance the action. 


In maths this term the children will be focusing on Fractions, and Position and Direction Don't forget to direct your children to the the TTRockstars website to practise their times tables, this is a really exciting website and children love it!! 


In geography this term children will be comparing Kent and Nevada to enable the children to answer the question Where would you rather set up  a new hotel Kent or Nevada?  Children will analyse evidence and draw conclusions.


In science children will be exploring Light. They will be learning about; how we see, reflecting light, refraction, how light travels, seeing colour, and shadows, 


In PE children will be focusing on football skills. These include dribbling, passing, shooting and defending. Please make sure that your child has a full PE kit including either trainers or plimsoles, a dark pair of jogging bottoms and a dark sweat shirt would also be a great idea as PE lessons will have to take place outside for the foreseeable future.
