Welcome to Year 6!
We have an exciting year ahead in Year 6. Our first topic for the year will be World War 2. We will be finding out the reasons the war started and identify countries involved in the war. We will learn about evacuees and what happened during the blitz. We will also find out more about rationing and comparing war time menus to our own weekly menu. We will continue to develop our English skills and we will be using the story ‘Goodnight Mister Tom’ during writing and comprehension lessons. On Thursday afternoons, Mrs Love will be teaching the children art and helping them to produce propaganda posters.
Children will have PE on Friday afternoon where they will continue to develop their hockey skills. Children need to make sure they have a full PE kit in school on this day. Please make sure their PE kit has their name in it. Jewellery, including earrings, must be removed and long hair should be tied back.
Children have now been given homework folders for English and Maths. They are expected to complete two sides in each folder and this will be handed in by Thursday each week. Homework may be handed in early if it is completed. Children are welcome to hand in their booklets more regularly and get ahead with their homework. However, we do request that no more than two sides are completed before being marked so misconceptions can be covered in class. Children are also still expected to complete reading at home and it is really important that they continue to focus on learning their times tables.
