Knowledge Organisers

At the end of the first week, every child was given a  pack of Knowledge Organisers. These are documents which outline the main elements of the topics being learnt this half term. Please do keep them in a safe place and use them regularly to support learning. Use the mini quiz to test knowledge at the start and then again at the end of the term. Learning the key vocabulary is essential.

Parents Top Tips - Engaging your child in reading

Spring Term in Year 6!

 

Welcome back! We hope you have had a wonderful summer, and are excited about the year ahead! Here is what we will be learning about this term:

 

English:

This term we are covering a range of skills within our English lessons. We will be making links between English and various other areas of the curriculum; such as Topic and PSHE. We will be working on the following units:

  • Poetry
  • Balanced Arguments
  • Time-shift Stories
  • Persuasion
  • SPAG Revision
  • Goodnight Mr Tom and writing linked to World War 2 topic. 

 

 

Maths:

We will be covering a range of areas with the children within our maths lessons this term:

  • Number
  • Calculation
  • Shape and Space
  • Using and Applying
  • Mental Strategies
  • Problem Solving
  • Measurements
  • Data Handling
  • Algebra
  • Statistics

 

The children will complete an Arithmetic test on a weekly basis to consolidate their learning. They will continue to take Cracking Times Tables tests and it is crucial that they have rapid recall of facts to at least 12 x 12 and also of the related division facts e.g. 144 divided by 12

 

Topic: World War Two

We will be learning about the  causes of World War Two, food and rationing, experiences of evacuees,women's roles and propaganda.

 

Science: ' Living Things and Their Habitats

 We will look at  classifying and grouping animals based on their characteristics, learning about helpful and harmful micro-organisms and  planning, implementing and drawing conclusions from investigations about micro-organisms. 

 

Art & DT:

Our focus this term is DT. We will link  this to our work on World War 2. applying pur knowledge of rationing and food available during this period by planning and making savoury dishes from this time.  We will also be researching different types of shelters used and using our knowledge of materials and joining and strengthening techniques, design and build our own shelters.  

 

 

RE

In RE this term the children will be learning about The Holy Trinity in Christianity, how churches help us to understand Christian beliefs and in the secind half of the term, the children will be extending their knowledge of Easter. 

 

Homework 

Each week your child will be given a list of spellings to learn which they will be tested on the following week. They will also receive a piece of English or Topic homework. In addition to this, Maths homework will be set. This may be on paper or on My Maths, our new computer-based maths programme. 

 

Thank you for your continued support.

 

Year 6 Teachers

 

 

 

Important Reminders...

*Homework will be set on a Thursday and is due to be returned Tuesday. 

 

*Children should also bring in their reading books and home-school communication books in with them daily. These will be signed by adults during guided and independent reading activities. 

 

*Our PE lessons take place on a Monday afternoon, alongside computing. We strongly recommend children bringing their PE kit in on a Monday and take it home on a Friday.   Jewellery MUST be removed for PE for Health and Safety. This includes earrings (if your child struggles to remove them, please take them out on PE days if possible.)

 

*As a school, we are trying to ensure that uniform is of the highest standard. As a result, we will be issuing letters should your child be wearing incorrect uniform. If you have any queries, please see your child's class teacher. 

 

*All money for school dinners and school trips should now be paid through Parent Pay.
