Out Of Africa Evolution and Inheritance Year 6 Project, Autumn 1

  • What’s the big idea?

    First there was a big bang!

    Then life began on Earth 3.8 billion years ago. But when did humans arrive and where did we come from? If we can find out the answer to these questions perhaps we can figure out where we are heading in the future...

  • What will we be learning?

    Science

    We will know:

    • How life began in the sea
    • How fossils provide information about living things from the past
    • Why the dinosaurs died out
    • How plants and animals reproduce
    • How living things evolve and change over time
    • How plants and animals are adapted to their environment

    We will be developing our understanding of:

    •  Whether there might be life on other planets
    • The classification of plants and animals

    Technology

    We will know:

    •  What foods early humans ate, grew and cooked
  • English
    • We will be using the book ‘There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom’ to develop our reading, writing and speaking skills.
    • We will be reminding ourselves of all the basics of grammar and just how much we love to read and get excited about new stories and characters!
  • Maths
    • We will be reminding ourselves of all the fantastic maths knowledge that we already have: times tables, the four operations, place value, shape – it’s all in there!
    • Our focus will continue to be on the place value of numbers and how this is the basis of all the maths that we do!
