Year 6 Learning in Summer 2

Here is a summary of some of the learning that children in year 6 will be doing this half-term.

Anti-Bullying

During story time and reflection time at the end of the day. Teachers will use the books below to support discussions on the following themes:

  • Different families
  • It’s good to be me

Teachers will present a lesson on anti-bullying using a new Anti-Bullying presentation. Teachers will introduce a class ‘worry box’.

Children will take part in the school bullying survey

 

Reading

Guided Reading will be linked to texts that deal with issues of equality (related to this half-term’s topic and those from previous terms).

Books from the following list will be used in class this half term:

The Terrible Thing That Happened to Barnaby Brocket by John Boyne

The Van Gogh Café by Cynthia Rylant

Totally Joe by James Howe

Holes by Louis Sachar

The Misfits by James Howe

The Skull of Truth by Bruce Colville

The Way Between by Rivera Sun

Gracefully Grayson by Ami Polonsky

What’s up with Jody Barton? by Hayley Long

The Beast of Cretacea by Todd Strasser

 

 Writing

Writing this half term will be based on ‘Holes” and ‘The Terrible Thing That Happened to Barnaby Brocket’ by John Boyne. Children will create characters who are different and consider the impact of these differences on their life.

 Spoken Language/ Drama/ Debate

Children will create improvised pieces of drama in small groups to demonstrate the importance of equality.

Children will design their own island. Within this project, they will:

  • Think about the identity of their island – create a flag and write a national anthem. The children should consider both the environment and equality as they write their anthem – what are their founding principles/values and how will they express them?
  • Consider, discuss and draft a set of laws for their island. Children need to consider the environment and equality as necessary areas to cover when working on this part of their project. This will include debate about why they need to have a legal system and what it’s priorities should be.

 

History

Children will learn about changes in society during the 20th and 21st centuries which have impacted on equality in society. This will cover racial inequality, women’s rights, disability and LGBTQ rights.

Design & Technology Design & Technology

Sewing & textiles

Children will be designing a square that will form part of a Year 6 2019 Leavers’ hanging. The children will create a design that reflects what makes them unique and what they are proud of about themselves. Children will design and plan their squares in sketchbooks and then use cross-stitch on binca cross stitch fabric. This hanging is going to be shared during the ’Proud to be Me’ parade.

Music

Performance – year six end of year musical production

Algorithms

Year 6 have begun to learn about algorithms. An algorithm is a detailed step-by-step instruction set or formula for solving a problem or completing a task. In computing, programmers write algorithms that instruct the computer how to perform a task. Year 6 learnt that algorithms are everywhere.  A recipe for making food is an algorithm, the method you use to solve addition or long division problems is an algorithm, and the process of folding a shirt or a pair of pants is an algorithm. Even your morning routine could be considered an algorithm! Year 6 discussed possible algorithms for an everyday routine and learnt that algorithms have to be precise in order for everyone to be able to use them.
