Hi everybody,

Welcome to Year 6. In our first term we are reading some excellent books including The Promise by Nicola Davies, Clockwork by Philip Pullman and The Man Who Walked Between the Towers by Mordicai Gerstein. We will be working hard with our basic number work and calculations in maths. 

We will be learning about 'light' in Science and the children will be doing experiments to help develop their knowlege and understanding.

In Religious Studies we will be focusing on Christianity. In History the children will learning all about The Industrial Revolution and this will link into our  Art lessons where the children will be studying the artist L S Lowry.  The children will also be improving their drawing skills by learning about perspective and developing their painting skills.

There will also be High School Transition work to complete as the term progresses.

 

  • Homework will be sent home every Tuesday and needs to be returned on or before Friday when we will go through it in class.
  • PE kits should be worn on MONDAYS and FRIDAYS for this half term. 
  • Reading books. As always, we expect the children to read independently at home as often as possible.  Children may also have their own books at home that they wish to read. We will continue to read every day in class and monitor the children's abilities and progress carefully.
  • Children have  a log in for Reading Plus that they can use access at home.

We thank you for your support in advance.
