Mr Jarret and Mrs James 

Welcome back!

We hope that you have had a lovely (if a little different) summer break. We have lots of exciting things to look forward to this half term.

Topic:

A Child’s War

This half term, we will be learning all about World War 2. Although these sessions will have a primarily history focus, our geography, art and design sessions will also be based around this topic.

 

In history, we will be learning about:

  • The outbreak of the war
  • The key events in the timeline of WW2
  • The Blitz
  • The holocaust
  • Rationing

 

In geography, we will be learning about:

  • The allied and axis nations
  • The impact of WW2 on British cities

 

In art and D&T, we will:

  • Create silhouette art based on The Blitz
  • Create and design Anderson Shelters

 

English

 

 

This half term, we will be reading Once by Morris Gleitzman. Our English lessons will be based around this text.

 

 

Maths

 

We will begin our maths sessions by focusing on number. 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:

  • Place value
  • Calculations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).
  • We will also continue to use Times Table Rock Stars regularly to ensure that children have an immediate recall of multiplication and division facts.

 

Science

 

Our current science topic is electricity.

Within lessons, children will learn to:

  • Explain the importance of major discoveries in electricity
  • Observe and explain the impact of different volts in a circuit
  • Plan and conduct scientific investigations.

 

 

Religious Education

 

In RE lessons, we will be studying the concept of creation from a Christian perspective. We will also consider the impact of science and how this is both complementary and contradictory to religious beliefs.

 

Computing:

 

In computing sessions, we will be using KODU to develop our programming skills. We will then create race tracks using this programme.

 

PE

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 practising a range of sports and fitness skills.
