Year 6 Project, Summer 2 – Let’s Investigate: A Summer Science Review

 
 
 
  • What’s the big idea?

    What’s the big idea?

    In this project, we will be reviewing some of the core Year 5 and 6 science knowledge that we have studied over the past two years. We will be able to really work at being scientists. We will ask questions, we will experiment, we will evaluate and then experiment again!

  • What will we be learning?

    Science

    We will be able to:

    • Plan different types of scientific enquiry
    • Record our results in a variety of different ways
    • Use our results to make predictions, and be able to then set up for further enquiry

    Geography

    We will be able to:

    • Locate the world’s countries using maps
    • Compare similarities and differences between cities in Scotland and cities in Thailand

    Technology

    We will be able to:

    • Make a shadow puppet theatre with characters linked to our book, Private Peaceful

    We will know:

    • About two world famous scientists and how their work has improved the lives of people around the world
  • Maths

    We will be continuing to review, and then build on, our prior learning. We will be revisiting the four operations, fractions, time and money, and most importantly ensuring that we are ready for the skills needed as we head into our secondary education!

  • English

    We will be learning all about World War One in our English lessons this half term. We will be looking at why it started, key leaders and life in the trenches. Alongside this, we will be reading one of our favourite books – Private Peaceful.

  • Year 6 Notes & Dates

    School day:

    The Year 6 school day starts at 8.40am. Your child needs to enter school through the main gate and walk through the KS2 playground. Staff will direct your child.

    All adults dropping off or picking up children must wear face masks from now on. Thank you. Please ensure you stay two metres away from other families.

    Your child needs to be collected from the KS2 playground at 3.10pm, unless they walk home alone. If your child can walk home alone, please fill out the form that you can collect from the office (this includes those children who walked home alone last year).   

    PE Kits

    School PE uniform is black shorts (or tracksuit bottoms) with a white t-shirt. Year 6 will have P.E. on a Monday and a Friday so please ensure that your child wears their P.E kit on these days to school. Please make sure that these are weather appropriate.  

    Home Learning:

    Tasks will be set by the teacher of each group, each week.

    These link to the learning that we are doing in the classroom, and will prepare the children for the expectations of homelearning in secondary school.

    We always show your children how to complete the home learning but please email us if you have any problems. Thank you!

    Your child has their login details – if you need these again, please email:  wyvern@greendragon.hounslow.sch.uk

    If you have any problems with completing the homelearning tasks, please talk to your teacher at pick up or email your teacher.

    Entry Point and Exit Point:

    Normally, we would invite you to celebrate the learning with us in school. Instead, photos of the children’s learning are shared each week in the school newsletter.
