    Year 6 Project, Autumn 1 term 2021: Out of Africa Evolution and Inheritance

  • What’s the big idea?

    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
  • Knowledge Organiser

    We use a knowledge organiser for every project in every year group. It is a helpful way for children and families to see the key knowledge that children will learn. This key knowledge helps the children ask more questions and then find out more information.

    It would be helpful to talk with your child about this knowledge organiser. As the project develops, they will be able to share more knowledge. Thank you!


  • Maths

    We will know

    • How to simplify fractions
    • How to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions
    • How to order and compare fractions
    • ALL OF OUR TIMES TABLES AND DIVISION FACTS!!
  • English

    We will be developing our writing skills . We will be applying our knowledge of grammar, punctuation and spelling to help us.

  • Year 6 Notes & Dates

    School day:

    The Year 6 school day starts at 8.45am. 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 3.15pm, 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 & swimming

    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.  Wyvern 1 need a swimming kit on Tuesdays, Wyvern 2 on Fridays.

    Home Learning:
