Welcome to the Pallister Park Year 6 Page



Welcome to the Year 6 page.  Here you will find information on the areas of study within Year 6, events and photographs of our adventures throughout the year.
This term, the topic is Frozen Kingdom, particularly, Polar regions, animals and their habitat.
This exciting topic will give children the opportunity to research geographical facts daily as well as plan different types of scientific enquiries to answer questions.
In geography, children will describe and understand key aspects of physical geography including climate zones, biomes and vegetation belts, rivers, mountains, volcanoes and earth quakes. They will be locating countries and cities of the UK, geographical regions and their identifying human and physical characteristics.
We will also be researching a variety of arctic animals. Why are polar bears white? Why does a walrus have large blobs underneath it’s flippers?
In english, we will continue reading Stormbreaker  by Anthony Horowitz before playing the role of journalist and writing newspaper reports on Ian Rider and his tragic death.

Year News

Metafit will be held weekly on a Monday afternoon (3:15pm finish) to try to help the children gain a greater understanding of the importance of having a healthy active lifestyle.

Last Term

As a reward for all the hard work last term, children had the pleasure of visiting Jump 360 for their end of term treat.
We all had a fantastic time and came out with a new pair of JUMP 360 socks that Mrs Round has advised everyone to take to Carlton for our exciting adventure holiday in December!

 

Homework

The children are expected to read their kindles every night and have their planner signed. Spellings are also given weekly and a copy taken home to practise. If you mislay these spellings, they can all be found on page 100 of your planner. No excuses!

 

Year 6 Events
