Year 6

Our topic this term in 6B is “Lest we Forget.” The theme encompasses both World war 1, (this half of the term) and World War 2 for the second half. This topic lends itself well to a cross curricular approach, where aspects of Art, Design and Technology, Geography and of course History, weave through the subject matter.

In Science, we will be learning about ‘Humans including Animals’

Literacy over the whole term will find us writing Trench poems, letter writing, reports and diary entries.

In Maths, we are consolidating our skills in Number, which will include place value and recapping the methods of the four operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

After half term in Maths, we will be looking at Fractions, Position and Direction.

Year 6 will have PE on Wednesday this term, where Gymnastics will be taught alternatively with Netball (King John Specialist). Please ensure your child attends school in their PE kit. The school rule is that no earrings can be worn during PE, therefore it would be appreciated if children remove their earrings before they come to school on PE days.

Homework this term, continues to be regularly reading, practising set spellings and times tables. Children will be given one set of spellings each week and will be tested on Fridays. Homework in preparation for the SATs will be slowly introduced before half-term, this will be accessed online.
