Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

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.

        

 

The Theory of Evolution (by Natural Selection)

 

 

 

'The Kingdom of God'

 

                                          See the source image
 

 

During this topic the children will explore God's unconditional love for us all and how he wants all of us to become part of his kingdom. To further explore this we will analyse the parable of 'The Lost Sheep' and 'The Prodigal Son'.   

 

                                                      

 

 

 

King Kong

In literacy, we are currently studying 'King Kong'. We will be using the original story to write letters, newspaper reports and descriptions.

 

 

 

 

 

Numeracy

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!

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?
