Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn Term. This term will be just as busy as ever, with a lot of fun and fantastic learning awaiting us.
As we begin our new half term, we start with a look at a new Power of Reading book, ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’. Through this book, Year 6 will embark on a new learning journey with a particular focus on World War II. They will investigate the lives of children during the war and learn all about London during this period.
Through their investigation and exploration of the past, pupils will also learn all about the wonderful world of electricity in Science. Year 6 will tie this into their Humanities learning and explore how the use of electricity has evolved through time, making comparisons between the use of electricity during the war period and today.
Both of these fascinating topics will feature in Numeracy and Literacy work where Year 6 will carry out investigations which require them to utilise their abilities to work with number and call on learning from previous lessons. Similarly, pupils will use their writing skills to report on the results of their investigations and share their understanding of their learning.
Year 6 will also use their Power of Reading book to tap into the lives of characters living at the time of World War II. They will use their experiences from reading to write from characters’ points of view and share their thoughts, opinions and experiences of the war. Look out for examples of work on the School Website.
We would like to say a big THANK YOU for your support this term, so far, particularly in supporting the new homework system for Year 6 and for ensuring all pupils bring in their P.E. kits.
We look forward to the second half of the Autumn Term and we hope you continue to lend your support to Year 6 to ensure continued success. If you have any questions regarding anything Year 6 related, please feel free to talk to a member of the Year 6 team.
We Love School!
