A note has been sent out in the Newsletter to bring in a plain white t-shirt the children can use to draw on in science next half term.
Homework is set every week. Your child will receive one piece of either Maths or English every Friday which is to be returned by the following Wednesday.
In addition, spellings are sent home weekly and will be tested every Friday.
Your child will have been allocated a day to attend Mathletics at 8.30a.m.
Classroom doors open from 8:40am so the children can come in from then each morning.
This term, Year 6 will be studying the novel, 'Letters from the lighthouse' by Emma Carroll and use this to aid their crative writing as well as some of their reading and comprehnsion work. We will also cover Anne Frank's diary to enhance our topic of World War II. We will cover lots of grammar topics this term and continue recapping topics already covered. During the spring term, Year 6 will begin with work on the relationship between fractions, decimals and percentages; they will also be working on units of measurement, algebra and geometry. The focus on their number work and reasoning skills will continue.
This term we will be focusing on evolution and the work of Charles Darwin.
During the spring term, we will be learning about World War II and its effects on Britain. As well as discussing the causes of the war, we will focus on pivotal events, such as Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain; other elements to be studied include evacuation and rationing.
Of course, everyone is excited about the residential trip to Oaklands in February. The children will have a fabulous time doing the various activities, such as rock climbing, kayaking and zip-wiring through the mines. Let's hope they don't disturb the dragons!
