Welcome to Year 6!
Our topic for the spring term will be ‘Crime and Punishment’. We will begin the topic by finding out how crimes and punishments have changed over the years. After half term, we will focus on crime and punishment in the modern day. We will continue to develop our English skills and we will be using the story ‘Holes’ during writing and comprehension lessons. On Thursday afternoons, Mrs Stapleton will be teaching the children science and they will begin with the topic ‘evolution and inheritance’. Mrs Stapleton will also be teaching the children on Fridays.
Children will have PE on Friday afternoon where they will be developing their dance 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 will continue to complete their 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 still expected to complete reading at home and are still trying to earn their certificates for the reading challenge. The children have also all been given a times table booklet to help them improve their knowledge of multiplication facts.
