Welcome to Year 6

Our Learning

 

In Year 6, we will be focusing on the local history of Leeds and Headingley, in particular the significance of the Victorian era leading on to the wars and post war years. We will be using maps of the area as part of our geography work. In science, we will be studying forces and investigating gravity, air resistance, water resistance and friction.  We will also learn about the mechanisms of levers, pulleys and gears and link this to our work in DT where we will design and make a toy that uses a mechanical system. In art, we will begin by looking at the work of L.S. Lowry and develop our own pictures in a similar style. Computing sessions will focus on developing more advanced keyboard and word processing skills; refining our information retrieval skills along with safe internet use.

Our English work will link to our topic work and will include writing reports, explanations, diary entries, instructions, persuasion and story writing.  In Maths, we will continue with the Passport targets and following the new mathematics curriculum beginning with rounding and ordering numbers up to 10,000,000, negative numbers, calculations using formal methods and moving on to fractions, algebra, measurement, geometry and statistics. We also have our terrific residential to Robinwood!

SOSO - Switched On Shire Oak
At Shire Oak we believe having confidence and a positive attitude to learning is crucial to a pupil's success in school.
During SOSO fortnight we worked together to create a class poster that shows the steps we can take to help us with our learning.
