This Autumn term we will be focusing our learning around the topic of World War 2. This was started by pupils bringing a range of amazing, intricate vehicles into school after the holidays which now adorn our classroom. With this as our base, we will be considering the events of the war, the roles that men and women played and learning about the Holocaust as an crucial moment to learn from in world history. We will also delve into the enigma machine and the use of propaganda used by the British government.
Our literacy lessons will compliment our new knowledge. We will base our narrative unit upon, 'Bombs and Blackberries' by Julia Donaldson and also improve our letter writing by pretending to be evacuees.
In science, we will cover the topics of light and electricity, whilst in maths we will be focusing on place value, the four operations and fractions. During RE, we will focus on the topics of Creation and People of God, working upon our KS2 knowledge to consider key lessons from the Bible.
Being in Year 6, the SATs tests are around the corner and all pupils are working extremely hard every day to ensure that they achieve their personal best. Morning maths is a great example of this, held every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 8:15. Parents' continual support with this is greatly appriciated.
