Year 6

Curriculum

This half term, we will be learning about the Second World War in history. As part of our unit of work, we will have an Evacuation Day on Friday 20th January 2023. Please see the separate letter for further details. In addition to the Evacuation Day, we will also visit the Imperial War Museum on Friday 3rd February. We will be using our knowledge from our history lessons to produce a novel based on a fictional evacuee in our English lessons.

In maths, we will be learning about fractions (including decimals and percentages) before learning about ratio and proportion. Our science lessons will be biology based when we will learn about classification.  In R.E, we will explore the big question, ‘What does it mean to belong to a religion?’ where the children will be developing their knowledge of Islam.

We will start our computing lessons with an internet safety lesson about the news and then become programmers, using Scratch to develop our understanding of variables. Our design and technology lessons will be cooking with a focus on seasonality, nutrition and understanding where our food comes from. Finally, in PSHCE we will be learning about economics and how to handle money, including keeping money safe and budgeting.

As part of our P.E. sessions, the children will be developing their football and hockey skills. Both of these sessions will be taught by the class teacher. As mentioned last half term, the children should come to school on their PE days in PE kits. It should consist of a top, shorts, trainers or plimsolls and as the weather gets colder, jogging bottoms or leggings and a long-sleeved top. Please note that the PE timetable has changed.

Homework

Homework is set on a Thursday and is due back the following Tuesday. We will still be using Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars for maths homework. The children will receive spellings each week which they will be tested on the following week. In addition, the children may also have a written or alternative task linked to the project that they will be completing throughout the half term. The homework document will be uploaded onto Google Classroom each week. If your child would like support with their homework or requires access to a computer, please speak to your child’s class teacher so they can attend homework club every Monday after school.

Reading

We still ask that your child reads every day, ideally for 20 minutes each time and records their reading in their reading record. It is important for you to listen to and discuss their reading, and it is equally as important for them to have a regular chance to listen to you reading. Before Christmas, every child was assessed and issued with a reading book corresponding to their book band colour. Your child is expected to bring their reading book and reading record to school every day; reading records are checked by their class teacher once a week and their books will be changed regularly.
