Miss Britt and Mrs Marsh
Welcome back after the Summer. We hope you all had a great break and had the chance to have lots of fun!!
Welcome to AutumnTerm 1 in Year 6. Please find lots of information about our class and the work that we will be doing this year.
This half term we will be studying 'Carrie's War' as our class book and there will be a reading focus to most of our English lessons. There will be lots of opportunities to devleop speaking and listening skills through discussions and debates and drama activities will be used to explore the characters within in the story. Writing tasks will be linked to the various chapters of the books that we will be exploring and our SPAG work within the class.
Year 6 will challenge themselves this half term through the themes of place value, rounding, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division strategies and problem solving. We will be following the format each week of 'fluency, reasoning and problem solving' to ensure that your child acquires the skills and understanding that is needed for Year 6 alongside the ability to apply this to a range of problem solving questions.
Our Topic this term is 'Life as an Evacuee'. For the first half term we will have a history focus as we will be looking at what it was like to be an Evacuee in the 2nd World War and the impact that the war had on life in this country.
Science: Children will build on their knowledge and understanding of different systems within the body. They will research the parts and functions of the circulatory system. They will focus on how nutrients are transported around the human body. Children will explore how a healthy lifestyle supports the body to function and how different types of drugs affect the body.
