Curriculum Information

During Term 3, we will be learning …

Maths

Having started the term by continuing our exploration of all things fractions, we'll be moving into more practical applications of our new-found skills by thinking about percentages, ratio and statistics. We'll be working on moving between fractions, decimals and percentages as well as calculating percentage reductions, averages and more. 

English

An exciting term lies ahead for our Year 6 as we focus on Malorie Blackman's superb Pig Heart Boy. As 13 year old Cameron struggles on with a failing heart, he has a decision to make as he has the opportunity for potentially life-saving surgery. As writers, we're already in the middle of a superb narrative inspired by the events of the Bristol Blitz and will then be moving onto two pieces of more scientific writing linked to Pig Heart Boy.

Science

In Term 3, we return to Biology and will be understanding all things 'Circulatory System.' We'll be understanding the remarkable machine that exists inside our bodies and learning about the roles each element plays in keeping us alive. 

Geography

In Geography, we turn our attention to more physical geography through the study of Earthquakes, Mountains and Volcanoes. This will help to give us a better understanding of the the events which have literally shaped the world we live in. 

History

Having reached the conclusion of local WW2 study, we'll be thinking about The Windrush Generation; their history and what their impact on both the UK and Bristol has been over the generations.  

RE

In RE, we'll be building on our understanding of the key traditions and beliefs of the major religions. 

Art

In Art, we'll explore a range of techniques including printing and will, as ever, be looking at the work of diverse of artists from the past and present. 

DT

Following on from our successful design and build DT day in term 2, we're looking forward to another design and build day; this time with automated toys. 

Music

This term's music focus will be composition as we work to compose songs linked to our learning. This will incorporate looking at lyrics, structure, melody and rhythm and beats. 

Computing

In computing, we'll be having an introduction to using Python which will test children's programming and debugging skills. 

PE

Our P.E. this term will involve team skills including invasion and ball games on a Tuesday and gym on a Friday.
