Welcome back, 6K!
Welcome back to Autumn Term 2.
We hope by now you feel nice an settled into Year 6 and that you are ready to get going with this half term's learning.
Take a look below at our learning for this term.
Our learning in Autumn Term 2
This term our topic is still based around World War 2 where we will be learning about other aspects of the war that we didn't cover last time. We will be looking at a timeline of all the key events, rationing and the Holocaust.
In our writing, we will be looking at the non-fiction text 'Can we save the tiger?' by Martin Jenkins. In our reading, we will be working on two texts: 'Martha's Suuitcase' before looking at the timeless classic 'The Jungle Book' by Rudyard Kipling.
In our maths work, main focus will be on fractions. We will be looking at adding, subtracting, multplying and comparing.
In science we will be looking at Living Things and Their Habitats, including classifying animals and looking at bacteria & viruses (how topical!).
French this term has us looking at weather, and our favourite types of ice cream.
All children have been given a school water bottle. This needs to be brought to school each day having been washed and re filled with fresh water from home. Children will be reminded at the end of the day to bring home their lunch bag and water bottle to be washed ready for the next day. We have turned off our water filter system so children will not be able to fill up their water bottle in the usual way. All classes have access to drinking water throughout the day should the children require extra water.
Our PE days are Monday and Thursday. On these days we ask that your child comes to school in their PE clothes rather than their school uniform.
Weather dependant they can wear their shorts and school coloured PE T- shirt and school jumper. If the weather is cold, then track suit bottoms/leggings would be more suitable. Trainers are preferable to pumps as it is possible the children may be outdoors for some lessons.
Outdoor Shoes and Coats
Please ensure your child brings a coat to school each day. We had a rainy start to the term but we are trying as much as possible to allow the children their outdoor breaks which may mean us putting coats on to go out in the rain as much as possible without getting too wet. Please ensure all coats are clearly named.
Please also ensure your child has a pair of outdoor shoes as our play area is on the school field. We will be using the field as much as possible.
