Welcome back to another year at Edward Pauling! We hope everyone is feeling relaxed and refreshed after a long and well-deserved break. An exciting and fun-filled year awaits Year 6 as we embark on the Autumn Term. We have so much to look forward to!
Through our Power of Reading book, “Rooftoppers”, we will learn all about the French Revolution and the impact and significance it has had on modern France and Europe. Pupils will study this fascinating topic through our humanities focus, where they will work as historians to explore a range of sources and carry out their own research. Pupils will also have the chance to develop their geography skills and design and create.
We will use our POR book as a focus for writing, where we will write across a range of genres, including fiction and non-fiction. First person fictional narratives will allow our pupils to consider deeply what it was like living during the time of our novel – pupils will continue to share their understanding through non-fiction newspaper reports. Finally, we will read and critique a range of refrain poems before creating our own based on the French Revolution!
Like in Literacy, we will tie our Mathematics focuses to our POR book to unify pupils’ learning experiences and support the knowledge and understanding they develop through their study in Humanities and Power of Reading. Pupils will carry out investigations relating to ordering and comparing numbers, multiplication and division as well as the use of mental strategies.
We cannot wait to see the wonderful work pupils will produce this year! Be sure to keep an eye on the school’s website for updates and Wow Work. It’s going to be a wonderful year. If you have any questions about anything Year 6 related, please feel free to speak to a member of the Year 6 team.
WE LOVE SCHOOL!
