Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn Term. This term will be just as busy and enjoyable as last term, however a lot of fantastic learning awaits us!
Our new book Power of Reading book is ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’. Through this book, we will embark on a new learning journey with a particular focus on World War II. We will investigate the lives of children during the war and learn all about London during this period.
To prepare for their learning ahead, Year 6 took a trip to the Imperial War Museum where they became ‘History Detectives’. They will rely on their findings from this visit to support further research in class.
Through our investigation and exploration of the past, in Science, we will also begin learning all about the wonderful world of electricity. We will tie this into our 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.
Year 6 will 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.
Both of these fascinating topics will feature in our Numeracy and Literacy work. In Numeracy we will carry out investigations that will utilise our ability to work with number particularly in multiplication and division. In Literacy, we will use our writing skills to report on the results of our investigations and share our understanding of our learning.
Look out for our work on the School Website!
As before, all homework will be available on Sumdog – remember, this will be set weekly. If you are having any problems accessing the homework, please speak to a member of the team.
We would also like to say a big THANK YOU for your support this term, for ensuring all pupils bring in their P.E. kits. We have had a very high number of pupils coming to school with the correct P.E. kit and we hope this continues.
We look forward to the second half of the Autumn Term and thank you for continuing to lend your support to Year 6. 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!
