Year 6 Learning
Is our Planet Active?
We are beginning to delve deeper into our exciting new theme ‘Is our Planet Active?’
In science this term, Year 6 will be exploring evolution and how living things are adapted to where they live. They are also exploring all about our amazing human body. During Science Day, the children will be also investigating light.
In Theme lessons, the children will be investigating the names of the earth’s tectonic plates and locating them on the world map. We will also be naming and describing the boundaries at which the plates meet. The children will be exploring the four different types of volcano; Active, Intermittent, Dormant and Extinct as well as many other types of natural disasters. The children will also be exploring why we have time zones and will know how to calculate time zones across the world.
Art and Design
In Art, the children will be using collage to depict different weather formations. They will also be designing and creating their own volcanoes and using chemical reactions to make them come to life!
