Year 6

We are beginning the year with our topic which is ‘Macbeth’. Within this, we will study William Shakespeare and take an in depth look at his play ‘Macbeth’. We will use this as a stimulus to inspire our writing, where we will be writing from the point of Macbeth and various characters. As well as this, in Art and DT we will use Water colours to create medieval crests and shields. In science, we are studying ‘Animals including humans’: this is the study of bodies and systems.

To begin with, homework will be set three times weekly on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday this will increase to daily as we move through the term. Homework should take no more than 20- 30 minutes a night.  PE lessons will be on a Tuesday with Mrs Keys, spellings will be given out and tested every Friday.  After half term, our topic will be ‘Ancient Greece’. Within this we will place Ancient Greece in time; explore ancient Greek warfare; investigate the beliefs of the Ancient Greeks; research daily life in Ancient Greece; and review the impact of Ancient Greece on the modern world.  We will use this as a stimulus for our writing.

Optional homework: Children can make a model of a human heart or lungs and bring this in for extra optional homework.
