Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome back, I hope you have all had a fantastic and relaxing summer holiday .We are very excited to be starting the new academic year and we have lots of exciting things planned for the children. We will be covering the following during the next half term:
In Mathematics we will be covering aspects of the following areas linking to our book Goodnight Mr Tom: number and place value, geometry, measure, fractions decimals and percentages as well as addition, subtraction and multiplication and division. We will also be working hard on mental arithmetic, which we will focus on daily during 5 Minute Maths.
In English, we will be focusing on enhancing their narrative writing. We will be exploring Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian and using the structure to inspire us to write our own narrative. Throughout all aspects of writing we will be focusing on sentence structure, grammar and punctuation.
We begin our new term with the theme ‘Buried Treasure’– a historical topic based around World War 2. To start, our learning will focus on P.S.H.E, where the children will be exploring their aspirations for the end of Year 6 and for their future. I am also looking forward to hearing lots of fantastic stories about the children’s adventures over the summer holidays. We will then move on to focusing on WW2, where we will be enriching our History and Geography skills by looking at maps, learning about Anne Frank, looking at rationing within maths, baking some of the food that was eaten during the war and much more!
We thank you for our continuing support.
