Last half term, our topic focused on our year 6 residential trip to Saundersfoot. In the lead up to our trip, in Geography and linking with our topic, we compared the human and physical characteristics of Writtle and Wales. We learnt about how cliffs are formed as well as how a coastline can be eroded over time. We revised our mapping skills by looking at how we navigate with a compass and how we use grid references. 

In science, we started learning about evolution and how animals have adapted to suit their environment. As we look at Darwin, we read about his discoveries of how birds adapted over time and how the same species adapted differently to suit their enviroment. In the lead up to Saundersfoot, we drew observations of birds and compared the different species that live there compared with here.

This half term, we will be preparing for 'Travelogue' where we will be presenting our journey to and adventures in Saundersfoot to you. In science, we will continue to learn about evolution as we look at characer traits we have inherited and how animals and humans have evolved over time. 

After 'Travelogue', we will be focusing on this half term's topic 'Money Spinners' where the children will be creating their own businesses, designing a product to sell and learning about how the can make a profit. In Maths, and linking with this topic we will continue to learn about statistics, algebra and problem solving as well as looking at stocks and shares.
