We have two classes in Year 6: In 6LC, the children will be taught by Miss Christian and in 6PC, the children will be taught by Mrs Chahal.
We will be supported in our learning by our Learning Support Assistants who are: Mrs Bowler and Miss Godman.
Our focus this term is number and place value and then we will move on to the four operations. We will also be learning revisiting and building on our fraction knowledge. Twice a week we will complete a Terrific Times Tables quiz to help our quick recall of our times tables. All children have their login details and can access MyMaths, Mathletics and TTRS from home.
This term, Year 6 will be starting the year with a STEM focus. We will be researching renewable energy and learning about a Danish Island where the community harnessed the wind and become almost completely energy independent. Year 6 will write a newspaper article on the achievements of this ‘Energy Island.’
Later in the term, Year 6 will be reading some spooky story openings and will have a go at writing a narrative story filled with suspense and tension. We will look carefully at how good word choices can have a powerful impact on the reader.
After half term, we will begin our WW2 topic. We will be learning all about the Blitz and the effects this had on London and the rest of the UK. Using this knowledge, we will be then be writing a non-chronological report.
Using an exciting range of texts, we will continue to develop our love for reading. At home, children should read for a minimum of 15 minutes each day. They should fill in their reading records to show that they have read. Reading Records will be checked by class teachers once a week.
We will begin with a geography focus, to look at the location of the countries involved in WWII and how their physical landscapes affected their strategies. This will lead us into our history topic of The Blitz.
As part of the Full STEAM Ahead project we will be learning about electricity and how more complex circuits work. We will be using this knowledge in our DT and computing project… watch this space!
