Spring Term 1


In English this half term we will be reading and analysing the classic fiction text- The Wizard of Oz. We will explore the characters, the settings and use what we have read to create an alternative story where our main character meets friends along their way home. We will be creating a persuasive travel brochure which will encourage people to visit South America (our geography unit) and we will explore poems based on songs and lyrics. 


Throughout the year we will be covering  all aspects of the year 6 national curriculum including place value, all four operations, fractions, decimals and percentages and shape, space and measure. We will explore the arithmetic side to maths and then use these skills to solve problems and reason. 


Our geography topic this half term is South America. We will be using atlases and maps to explore the countries and capital cities of the continent. We will be conducting research on various cities, mountain ranges and rain-forests and exploring the food, people, climates, weather and buildings that make South America famous.
