Anning Class

In Anning Class (Year 6), we love to provide all of our amazing children with high-quality teaching and exciting, challenging learning. By following the guidelines and objectives within the National Curriculum, we are able to provide the children with a diverse and relevant curriculum that actively interests them. The Summer term will, as always, be jam-packed; this will be directly linked to our brand-new topic: Climate Change - Be the Change!

It is crucial to ensure that all children are provided with the chance to explore high-quality fiction and non-fiction texts within their English lessons, therefore lots of our writing opportunities will be derived from books! Some of these include: The Last Tree in the City, Why the Whales Came, Scavengers and the Little People: Big Dreams Greta Thunberg book. The children will produce a range of fiction and non-fiction pieces of writing: persuasive speeches, commentaries, biographies, stories, letters and diary entries.

In maths, we will have the transition to secondary school at the heart of our learning, ensuring that all children have a sound understanding of many key concepts in maths. We will be able to investigate and experiment in maths lessons, using graphs, statistics and data to support this. The children will continue to work hard in areas such as place value and number, geometry, algebra and fractions, decimals and percentages, and they will also have plenty of opportunity to deepen their fluency in preparation for Key Stage 3 learning.

Using our project title as inspiration, we will be able to cover many other exciting areas of the curriculum within our project work. Science lessons will revolve around evolution and inheritance, recycling, dams and floating and sinking. In geography, we will be exploring ecosystems, natural disasters and looking at the ways in which climate change and pollution has affected environments around the world. The children will be taking part in lots of art and D&T lessons this term: textiles, upcycling, printing, architecture and a study of contemporary artists, to name a few. In music, we will explore Hans Zimmer and his stunning soundtrack to Sir David Attenborough’s series Blue Planet II, as well as learn how music and musical instruments can replicate emotions, feelings and animals. In cooking, we will explore plant-based recipes and the children will learn about how British food is sourced and is sustainable.  

This project will prove to hold a fantastic array of practical and challenging learning for all children. As the children begin to consider their transition to secondary school, it is vital we provide them with fun, laughter and life long memories so that they can fondly remember their John Hellins’ journey.
