Our connector this term is.....
Our connector is a Geography based connector that will apply your understanding of both human and physical geography when exploring the reasons for animals becoming endangered.
We will also be spending time exploring a range of animals that are threatened and endangered and understanding how we can prevent the animals from becoming extinct.
In English, we will be writing formal and persuasive letters on the subject of palm oil: its negative and destructive impact on our environment and the planets species living in the affected habitat. We will also be writing non-chronological reports on an endangered animal and the possible solutions to its plight.
We will be reading the wonderful novel 'Holes' by Louis Sachar (Mr Schofield's favourite year 6 novel) and writing character descriptions based on the characters of Stanley and the Warden.
The focus in Maths for this half term is fractions, decimals and percentages. We will be exploring fractions in further detail and how to find their decimal and percentage equivalents.
There will be an additional focus on arithmetic this year in the lead up to SATs. Furthermore, you will be building on your knowledge of the four operations in different contexts deciding which operations and methods to use and why.
PE is on the following days:
6D - Tuesday
