Welcome to Year 6!
We are so excited to start our new topics in September! In History, we are learning all about World War Two and the Battle of Britain. We will close our fascinating history topic by creating our own history museum! We love to develop our enterprise skills in Year 6. In Geography, our fascinating topic is called, 'Rivers Deep and Mountains High' and we will explore mountains and rivers across the globe as well as their formations.
In our English lessons, we will be reading an exciting novel called Wonder by R J Palacio. Our English lessons will be based around the interesting characters and themes of this wonderful story.
In Maths, we will be securing our knowledge in place value, the four operations and developing confidence when calculating using fractions. We will also be developing our arithmetic and reasoning skills.
Maths and spelling homework will be set and marked every Monday. We will also encourage you to read every night and take part in our Reading Challenge! Don't forget to learn all of your times tables up to 12 x 12 and log on to Spelling Shed and TTR on a regular basis.
PE days: Tuesday & Thursday
We are looking forward to working with you this term!
