Our first exciting topic is called 'Raging Rivers' and we will be developing our geographical skills. For example, we will be using OS maps, GIS and aerial photographs to recognise, describe, compare and contrast physical features along the course of a river. In our English lessons, we will be studying Floodland by Marcus Sedgwick.
During term 2, we will be studying the topic 'Fallen fields'. In this topic, the children will understand the causes, consequences and significance of World War One. In our English lessons, we will be studying, 'The War Game' by Michael Foreman.
Maths and spelling homework will be set each week. It is always set and due in every Monday. Each term, your child will also be set a challenge to produce some independent research on their topic. They can produce this work in any way they wish (for example a poster or a leaflet). We politely ask that they do not bring their work into school on a memory stick.
I am looking forward to an exciting first term in Year 6!
Thank you for your support, Miss Havenhand.
