What have our children been learning in Year 6 across the Autumn Term?
For our first mini mission, we began by stepping into the Place
Between: a magical room filled with flying cards, doves, a
carousel and more magical things. Our first mini mission is
based on the book ‘Leon and the Place Between’ which
involves a very brave boy (Leon) who is invited, by a
mysterious magician, to enter the Place Between (which is
the place filled with the things that have disappeared during
a magic act)!
Despite the book being full of beautiful images, we thought
we could improve the text by adding more beautiful
description and language to fully immerse the reader into
the Place Between. We will be spending three weeks focusing
on interweaving character, setting and plot and creating
atmosphere to rewrite Leon and the Place Between. To
accompany our writing, we are creating the artwork in a
similar style to the original and adding a collage of materials
to add texture.
In maths, we are beginning with Place Value
which underpins the rest of our maths learning
in Year 6. We will be exploring the value of each
digit up to ten million; reading, writing and
ordering numbers, rounding and much more!
We will be learning through lots of practical,
hands on learning with real life applications.
Year 6 will have P.E on a Wednesday morning and a Thursday afternoon. Music is also on a Thursday afternoon.
