Welcome to Y6! The adults in our class are Miss Parkinson, Mrs Stead and Ms Keating.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday
What we are learning this year:
These days we have lots of science knowledge at our fingertips; it can be found quickly and easily on the Internet. The science knowledge in books and websites is what other scientists have discovered in the past. To discover new things ourselves we need to be able to be able to ‘do’ science not just ‘know’ about it.
During this unit we will learn how to ‘do’ science. We will learn several, important, scientific skills. These skills can be used in a whole range of scientific situations. However we will use these skills to investigate one branch of science: materials and their properties. We will also see how these skills can be applied to one real world context – the exciting world of forensic science!
In this unit, we’ll be finding out:
The children were shocked when they came to school only to discover that a crime had been committed in our Library and they had to become detectives. They investigated the scene and found evidence such as blood samples and finger prints. They then interviewed members of staff to find out what had happened.
Every day we are learning lots of new and different things – gaining the knowledge, skills and understanding that we will need to become successful adults. By finding out more about how we learn, and how we can improve our learning, we will be better equipped for meeting the many challenges ahead of us.
In this unit, we’ll be ﬁnding out:
When they learn children will be:
Entry Point-Making optical illusions.

Out of Africa
First there was the big bang! Then life began on Earth 3.8 billion years ago. But when did humans arrive
and where did we come from? If we can find out the answer to these questions perhaps we can figure out
where we are heading in the future…
n Science, we’ll be finding out:
How life began in the sea then came out of the sea
How fossils provide information about living things from the past
Why the dinosaurs died out
About the classification of plants and animals
How plants and animals reproduce
How living things evolve and change over time
How plants and animals are adapted to their environment
How adaptation leads to evolution
Whether there is life on other planets
In Technology we’ll be finding out:
What foods early humans ate, grew and cooked
About prehistoric food and cooking techniques
In International, we’ll be finding out:
How superbugs evolve and spread around the world
Why we should prevent species extinction
