Spring 1 – Why must we remember them?
Welcome to Year 6! We are Violet Class and Lilac Class!
Class teacher: Mr Brown and Mrs Remington Davidson
Teaching assistants: Ms Lilley
Class teacher: Ms Wykes
Teaching assistants: Mr Geen
This half term, our topic is ‘World War 2’. With strong focuses on English and History, from the Treaty of Versailles to the Blitz. Children will find out: What caused the war to begin, how brave pilots defended from the RAF fought in the Battle of Britain, how propaganda was used by both sides and how life really was on the home front. At the end of the unit we will also be taking part in a Wow day in character where children will be evacuees sent from London to Cambridge!
In Maths, we will be looking at fractions and percentages in great depth as part of our NCTEM ready to progress curriculum. In addition, we will continue to revise our Times Tables. Children will continue to take ownership of their own learning to focus on specific times table each week, practising these in school as well as at home.
This term, we will be continuing with our Music sessions with Mr Ecclestone as well as weekly Outdoor PE sessions of Hockey and Indoor PE sessions of Dance. Please make sure that your child has the appropriate PE kit in school for our PE sessions on Wednesday and Thursdays (Violet) and Monday and Wednesday (Lilac) – no jewellery please. Home learning will be set weekly this term and will include a range of activities from different subjects. Children will also be able to access Spelling Frame for regular spelling practice.
