Jaguars & Pumas (Year 6)

Teachers: Mrs Clark, Miss Marshall, Mr Giles

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Jenner, Miss K and Mrs Heagarty

Welcome to Year 6! Our main topic the first half of the Autumn term is, ‘Why do some creatures no longer exist?’ We learn about evolution and adaptation in Science and this is supported by our trip to Lyme Regis. We complete our Science by learning about the different categories of living things and using classification keys to identify them. In RE we also focus on evolution by considering if Creation and Cosmology/Evolution are complimentary or conflicting? In English, we use the text Animalium to learn about how to write non-chronological reports and will conclude this learning by writing reports on The Ichthyosaur – the famous prehistoric creature whose fossil Mary Anning discovered in Dorset. The children will write scripts for and film documentaries about extinct animals using the green screen and iMovies. Our Maths learning this term is based around revising and extending our understanding of number sense and mental and written methods for addition and subtraction. In PE we are completing a gymnastics unit indoors and team building games that improve communication outside. Our computing unit is focused around word processing and creating quizzes on Google Slides and Google Docs and our Art is focused on drawing and painting skills and the children will be drawing fossils, including the ones they find on the trip to Lyme Regis! The children have also started Spanish this year with Mrs Horn. Finally, our PSHE Jigsaw unit is, ‘Being Me in My World,’ and so far the children have agreed a Class Charter and thought about their hopes and dreams and Fears and Worries. 


As always, if you have any concerns or issues that need addressing, please email the school via the class comms or speak to us at the door.



Each half term we carry out our learning through different topics. Information on these topics will be shared with you on Google Classroom as well as on this web site. You will be able to see weekly homework tasks as well as finding out more information about what your child has been learning through our weekly newsletters.
