Year 6

This term in 6D.

In Year 6 this term our topic has a history focus. We will be learning about World War 1 and World War 2 and the effect of these particularly on the lives of children and the families left behind. I am hoping to be able to arrange a class trip to Chelmsford Museum and will let you know further details when I have them.   Our Science topic for the first half term is Light up your World during which we will be learning about light and what it does, how it works.  Our ICT work will be linked to the topic we are studying and will also include learning about programming and coding.  PE lessons are currently on Tuesday afternoon although PE kit should be in school throughout the week. This half term it will be games based with gymnastics to follow.  Homework will be set on a Monday to be completed by Thursday and Thursday to be completed by Monday. Spellings will be formally tested at the end of each half term, with spelling lessons and opportunities to use and practice the words set during class activities.

Use of film in year 6: In literacy and topic work we may be using a variety of films, in whole or in part, to enhance learning. Some of these films may be rated as PG. If you do not wish your child to view a PG film in class please let us know.
