Welcome to Year 6. Our classes are:
- Mumbai Class - Mr. Lynch
- Shanghai Class - Mrs Johnson
This term in IPC, we have been studying Out of Africa. This has involved studying how evolution and inheritance has created variation and adaptations within species of animals. More recently, we have begun to understand how micro-organisms and microbes are able to survive in all conditions and habitats. This has involved an experiment involving the growth of mould in different circumstances.
In English, we have been studying William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Following the story of the Thane of Glamis, we have studied the character, writing narratives, letters and newspaper reports. This has culminated in a trip to the Globe Theatre.
In maths, we have continued to study fractions, decimals and percentages – understanding how to find fractions and percentages of amounts, how they each are equivalent and how to solve problems involving them. Alongside this, we have been reinforcing arithmetic skills throughout the term.
