We hope everyone is relaxed and refreshed after a long and well deserved break. An exciting and fun-filled year awaits Year 6 as we head into the Autumn Term. We have so much to look forward to!
Through our Power of Reading book “Rooftoppers”, the pupils will learn 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 deal with a range of sources and carry out their own research.
The Power of Reading book is a focus for writing in Literacy, where the pupils will write across a range of genres, including fiction and non-fiction. First person fictional narratives will allow our pupils to deeply consider what it was like living during the time of our novel. Our pupils will share their understanding of these times 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.
In Numeracy, pupils will begin the term with a review of place value, before carrying out investigations related to ordering and comparing numbers. After returning to addition and subtraction, we will progress into multiplication and division as well. The use of mental strategies to solve all the operations will be a focus for the term.
We are looking forward to seeing the wonderful work our pupils produce this year!
Be sure to keep an eye on the school’s website for updates and Wow Work.
