Welcome back Year 6!
A start of a brand new year and the final leg of your Queens journey. You have a very busy year ahead but with the right attitude and dedication to your learning, you will be fine and ready to face the challenges ahead of you.
This term, we will be focussing on Stig of the Dump and The Stone Age. We will be studying what links there are between the novel and that period in History. In Reading, we will read Goodnight Mr Tom and explore the different themes through the Reading Content Domains. Later on in the term, we will have a short unit on War Game that will ties in with the annual Remembrance Day commemorations.
In Maths, we will be covering many units such as number, measures, data and shape. Our Maths lessons will focus on your developing your fluency and reasoning skills so there will be plenty of opportunities for you to engage in Maths talk!
Other topics we will be covering include Living Things and Electricity in Science and Christianity and The Big Frieze as well as comparing Hinduism and Humanism in RE. We will also be looking at skills in Computing, Spanish and lots of exciting activities in Music.
Our PE day is Thursday and spellings will go out on Friday to be tested on the following Friday. You will receive your homework sheet at the start of the term and will be expected to work through it each week.
Wherever possible, we will get into the Immersive Classroom to enhance our learning across the curriculum.
We have an exciting term ahead and we are looking forward to teaching you!
Mrs Varachhia, Mr Kidd and Miss Rees
