Year 6 Class Teacher
Children will be immersed in Harry Potter's World. We will read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and from that, the children will write persuasive and instructional texts and revise noun phrases, modal verbs, parenthesis and sentence forms. They will discuss which Hogwarts house they might be suited to and retell an exciting scene from a different point of view. Children will also write a persuasive letter and a set of instructions to explain how to make a potion.
Throughout this unit, children will describe how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including microorganisms, plants and animals.
They will give reasons for classifying plants and animals based on specific characteristics. Children will also learn the process by which living things can gradually change over time and the process of passing features from plants and offspring.
