Science

 

Sc4 Light and Sound

 

Sc4 3a that light travels from a source

 

Sc4 3b that light cannot pass through some materials, and how this leads to the formation of shadows

 

Sc4 3c that light is reflected from surfaces (for example, mirrors, polished metals)

 

Seeing

SC4 3d that we see things only when the light from them enters our eyes

 

 

Sc4 3e that sounds are made when objects (for example, strings on musical instruments) vibrate but that vibrations are not always directly visible

 

Sc4  3f how to change the pitch and loudness of sounds produced by some vibrating objects (for example, a drum skin, a plucked string)

 

Sc4 3g that vibrations from sound sources require a medium (for example, metal, wood, glass, air) through which to travel to the ear

 

Sc1 2f make systematic observations and measurements, including the use of ICT for data-logging

 

Sc1 2h use a wide range of methods, including diagrams, drawings, tables, bar charts, line graphs and ICT, to communicate data in an appropriate and systematic manner

 

Design Technology

2bSuggest alternative ways of making their product, if first attempts fail

 

4a how the working characteristics of materials affect the ways they are used

 

5c design and make assignments using a range of materials including electrical and mechanical components, food, mouldable materials, stiff and flexible sheet materials and textiles

 

History

Britain since 1930

11b A study of the impact of the Second World War or social and technological changes that have taken place since 1930, on the lives of men, women and children from different sections of society.

 

2b about the social, cultural, religious and ethnic diversity of the societies studied, in Britain and the wider world

 

2c to identify and describe reasons for, and results of, historical events, situations, and changes in the period studied

 

 

Design Technology

1a generate ideas for products after thinking about who will use them and what they will be used for, using information from a number of sources, including ICT-based sources

 

2e use finishing techniques to strengthen and improve the appearance of their product, using a range of equipment including ICT (for example, ‘drawing’ software or computer-aided design (CAD) software and a printer)

Space -Spring 1-Y6Sp

 

Science

Sc4  4 The Earth and Beyond

 

Sc4 4a that the Sun, Earth and Moon are approximately spherical

 

Sc4 4b how the position of the Sun appears to change during the day, and how shadows change as this happens

 

Sc4 4c how day and night are related to the spin of the Earth on its own axis

 

Sc4 4d that the Earth orbits the Sun once each year, and that the Moon takes approximately 28 days to orbit the Earth.

 

Sc4 2b that objects are pulled downwards because of the gravitational attraction between them and the Earth

 

Sc3 1a to compare everyday materials and objects on the basis of their material properties, including hardness, strength, flexibility and magnetic behaviour

RQ 8 Has Science got all the answers?

 

Computing

  • E safety
  • Programming using Kodu

 

 Near and Far- Spring Y6WT

 

Global link – email contacts with other schools

 

Geography

1b to collect and record evidence (for example, by carrying out a survey of shop functions and showing them on a graph)

 

1c analyse evidence and draw conclusions (for example, by comparing population data for two localities)

 

1e communicate in ways appropriate to the task and audience (for example, by writing to a newspaper about a local issue, using email to exchange information about the locality with another school)

 

2f to use ICT to help in geographical investigations (for example, creating a data file to analyse fieldwork data)

 

2g decision making skills (for example, deciding what measures are needed to improve safety in a local street)

 

3c to describe where places are (for example, in which region/country the places are, whether they are near rivers or hills, what the nearest towns or cities are)

 

3g to recognise how places fit within a wider geographical context (for example, as part of a bigger region or country) and are interdependent(for example, through the supply of goods, movements of people)

 

4 Knowledge and understanding of patterns and processes

 

2e to draw plans and maps at a range of scales (for example, a sketch map of a locality)

 

Art

3D Models

3b adapt their work according to their views and describe how they might develop it further.

  • Local studies/map work
  • Inserting video/photo link

Strand

  • communication

 

Summer 1- Hogwarts 1 -Y6BNTV

 

Science

Sc1 1a that science is about thinking creatively to try to explain how living and non-living things work, and to establish links between causes and effects (for example, Jenner’s vaccination work)

 

Sc1 1b that it is important to test ideas using evidence from observation and measurement

 

Sc2 5f that micro-organisms are living organisms that are often too small to be seen, and that they may be beneficial (for example, in the breakdown of waste, in making bread) or harmful( for example, in causing disease, in causing food to go mouldy).

Sc2 1f about the main stages of human life cycle

Transition

 

Science

Sc2 2g about the effects on the human body of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs, and how these relate to their personal health

 

Sc3 2a to describe changes that occur when materials are mixed (for example, adding salt to water)

 

Sc3 2d about reversible changes, including dissolving, melting, boiling, condensing, freezing and evaporating

 

Sc3 2e the part played by evaporation and condensation in the water cycle

 

Sc3 3b that some solids (for example, salt, sugar) dissolve in water to give solutions but some (for example, sand, chalk) do not

 

Sc3 3c how to separate insoluble solids from liquids by filtering

 

Sc3 3d how to recover dissolved solids by evaporating the liquid from the solution
