Welcome to Year 6
Mr Thomas and Miss Gibson
Ms Malik and Miss Price
Mr Jarret and Mrs James
We hope that you have had a lovely Christmas break.
We have lots of exciting things to look forward to this half term.
Justice and Freedom
Our topic for this half term is Justice and Freedom. Although this has a primarily PSHE focus, our history, geography and art and design sessions will also link to this topic.
This half term, we will be reading Freedom: 1783 by Catherine Johnson. Our English work will be based around this text.
We will continue to focus on number as we begin this half term. Alongside year 6 objectives, children will also have the opportunity to recap and further build upon their learning from year 5. This half term, we will cover:
Our current science topic is animals including humans.
Within lessons, children will learn to:
Describe the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood.
Explain how water and nutrients are transported around the body.
Describe how diet and exercise affect the body.
Explain the impacts of drugs and alcohol.
In RE lessons, we will begin by studying and comparing different religions within our local area. We will then move on to our 'Incarnation' unit of work where we will consider the question: 'Was Jesus the Messiah?'.
In computing sessions, we will complete a unit of work focusing on the importance of internet safety. Children will then create PowerPoints to demonstrate their understanding of this topic.
Year 6 will have PE every Tuesday. Please ensure that your child comes to school wearing their PE kit on this day.
This half term, we will be focusing on hockey skills.
