A PERSONALIZED LIBRARY FOR EVERY STUDENT | HOMESCHOOL

Reading Comprehension: Children will continue to read a wide variety of texts and answer questions based on what they have read.

Spelling: Keep practising your spelling skills by logging in and playing spelling games on the Spelling Shed.

Maths: Children will continue to practise their arithmetic skills and will be completing the weekly arithmetic tests.

This term children will be learning new concepts which include statistics and geometry.

It would really help to support our learning in class if you could continue to practise times tables with your childrenwww.timestable.co.uk Knowing these and being able to confidently recall them underpins the majority of the Maths in the Year 6 curriculum and can really boost progress.

The White Rose Year 6 Book is available to purchase here.

RE: What kind of King is Jesus?

 

  • Children will explain connections between biblical texts and the concept of the Kingdom of God.
  • Children will consider different possible meanings for the biblical texts studied, showing awareness of different interpretations.
  • Children will make clear connections between belief in the Kingdom of God and how Christians put their beliefs into practice in different ways, including in worship and in service to the community.
  • Children will relate Christian teachings or beliefs about God’s Kingdom to the issues, problems and opportunities of their own lives and the life of their own community in the world today, offering insights about whether or not the world could or should learn from Christian ideas.

Science: Science will focus on Electricity.

Key questions include:

  • Can they identify and name the basic parts of a simple electric series circuit? (cells, wires, bulbs, switches, buzzers)
  • Can they compare and give reasons for variations in how components function, including the brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers, the on/off position of switches?
  • Can they use recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram?

Extra science information is available on BBC Bitesize.

Geography: This term children will be exploring and investigating the impact traffic has on our local area.

Children will be carrying out their own research and presenting their findings as a report.
