Year 6 Topics
Year Six will start this academic year using our 'mystery whole school visit' as an inspiration for activities in all curriculum areas. Running alongside the whole school stimulus we will be focusing on The Victorians in which we will learn about life during the Victorian times and how this period of time has influenced us today. This will be followed by our World War 2 topic. We will learn why, when and how World War 2 started, learn about Anne Frank and read parts of her diary and also learn what life was like for British people during this period of time. We will also be reading 'Goodnight Mr Tom' alongside the topic to support the learning in our topic. We will finish the year studying a mapping unit of work which links in very well with our residential trip to Lakeside. The children will be studying areas of the UK, learning how to read 4 figure and 6 figure grid references and looking at different mountains and lakes in the UK.
Throughout the Autumn term, the children will be given both a Maths and an English piece of homework every week. The expectation is that the children take the homework home on a Monday and bring it back the following Monday to mark in class in order for them to see their misconceptions right away and are able to address these with the teacher.
During the Spring term, the children will be given Maths, Grammar and Reading CGP books in which they will be told weekly which pages they must complete. They must continue bringing these in on a Monday to mark in class.
Spellings will be handed out every week. Children will be given 10 spellings to learn and a spelling test will take place every Monday.
In addition to this set homework, each week your child should read aloud most days and their reading record books signed.
PE will take place on a Wednesday and Friday. Named kit should be in school all week. No earrings or watches are allowed. PE kits should be bought in on a Monday morning and taken home on a Friday as PE days may change due to the weather or other school events/activities clashing.
