Year 6 Spring Term 2 - Frozen Kingdom

During the second part of the spring term Year 6 will be studying a new topic. Their new topic is 'Frozen Kingdom'.  We will be studying famous explorers such as Robert Falcon Scott as well as looking at famous historical events such as the sinking of the Titanic. This topic will also allow us to discuss the issues surrounding global warming with the children holding a debate to voice their opinions.

Please see our topic overview for further details on the individual subjects.

Year 6 Spring Term 1 - A Child's War

 

Our first topic for the Spring term is 'A Child's War' where we will be studying how World War II impacted on the lives of children. During this topic we will be studying evacuation, children's roles in the home and schooling.  If you have any artifacts that may relate to this topic please bring them in to enhance our learning.  As part of this topic we plan to organise a 'day in the life of an evacuee' experience.  The children will hopefully realise how lucky they are.

We have high expectations in Year 6 and the work we have seen so far has been of a very high  standard. Here are a few things we need to remember:

 

  • Homework is given out weekly and involves Literacy, Numeracy, Spelling and Reading.
  • Homework is issued on a Thursday and the deadline for completion is the following Wednesday.
  • Spelling tests take place EVERY Wednesday and we have a Multiplication challenge which takes place EVERY Friday.
  • Children will need their PE kit every Monday and Thursday for Games / PE sessions.
  • We expect everyone to read at least 3 times a week at home in addition to the reading they do in school.

 

We look forward to seeing you for the Parent Information Evenings, week commencing Monday 19th September.
