Our Big Question this term is:
Will we ever stop evolving?
During the autumn term we will be exploring Darwin's theory of evolution and the Mayans.
In literacy, we are currently studying 'King Kong'. We will be using the original story to write letters, newspaper reports and descriptions.
Throughout the year, year 6 will be considering the question below...
We will be focusing on applying their numeracy skills to solve reasoning and real life problems. Children will deepen their
understanding of the 4 operations and how they can be applied to the world around them. One brilliant way we will be using our mathematic skills every day will be when we are spending our saves in Sutton Stores or when we are saving up in Seacombe Bank!
Can you complete my tricky maths challenge?
The Moons of Vuvv
The planet of Vuvv has 7 moons which lie spread out on one plane in a great disc round it. These Vuvvian moons all have long and confusing names so scientists usually call them by their initials: A,B,C,D,E,F and G starting from the nearest one to the planet.
When two of these moons line up with the planet it is called a 'lunar eclipse'. When three line up with the planet it is called a 'double eclipse', when four do it is a 'triple eclipse' and so on. Once in a while all seven moons line up with the planet and this is called a 'super-eclipse'.
Moon A completes a cycle round the planet in one Vuvvian year, moon B takes two years, moon C takes three years, moon D takes four years and so on.
How long is it between each 'super-eclipse' on the planet of Vuvv?
