Mind, Body and Soul
Hello and welcome to the class page for 6F. This term we have a science based connector and we will learn all about the human body. We will also begin to learn some mindfulness and meditation techniques to help us to remain calm in difficult situations. Our PSHE sessions will also focus on body image and self esteem and the children will learn to question negative images that they see in the media.
In English, we will be focusing on non-fiction writing and will write an explanation text about the circulatory system. Our writing will be formal and the children will be using a range of conjunctions to help their writing to flow. We will also be reading 'Wonder', a novel by R.J Palacio. We will use the novel as the basis for our fiction writing and will write as different characters in the story.
Our Science topic is ‘Animals Including Humans’, where the children will be learning about the human circulatory system and how oxygenated blood is pumped around the body. They will also recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way their bodies function.
This term we will focus on fractions in Mathematics. The children will learn to simplify and find equivalences in fractions and will represent their knowledge using diagrams. They will also learn to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions. There will be an additional focus on arithmetic to help prepare Year 6 pupils for SATs. Please continue to practice times tables, number bonds and the four operations at home.
