Welcome Sharks, Whales, Turtles and Dolphins
Welcome back to you all. We hope that you have had an enjoyable break and are ready and raring to go.
We have an exciting autumn term planned which is based around our creative curriculum history topic ‘To Final Victory’. This World War Two unit looks at what life was like for Londoners during the Blitz, as well as the allies who supported Britain to be victorious.
We will continue to study a variety of text in English including ‘Rose Blanche’ (by Ian McEwan) and ‘Robin Hood’. In addition to this, we will read a range of poetry; in mathematics we will consolidate our knowledge and understanding and apply our skills to solve investigations; in science we will study ‘Light’ and ‘Electricity’.
A new addition to this year is our weekly mindfulness sessions. With secondary school and SATs around the corner we will endeavour to approach all challenges with a growth mind-set and strive to remain positive.
This term, remember to bring your PE kits on a Monday and Tuesday. Please make sure that jewellery is not worn on these days, including earrings.
Please ensure that you continue to take advantage of the online programmes such as, Bug Club, Mathletics and Times Table Rock Stars.
Homework for this year will be as follows:
Weekly Mathletics activities
Weekly maths worksheet based on our classroom learning
Don’t forget to read and discuss the vocabulary and knowledge mats with your family to deepen your understanding of what you are learning this term!
We are very much looking forward to our first term together! Thanks for your support, the Year 6 staff team.
