The Topic this half term is
Our main topic this half term is science based. After we finish our Evolution topic, we will be learning about how we see things. We will learn about how light travels, reflections and shadows through a range of investigations.
Reading and Writing
In reading, Year 6 will be revising a variety of genres and learning how to answer questions on texts: including the text Macbeth. They will focus on comprehension skills in order to prepare for their SATs Test
In writing, Year 6 will be studying the text Macbeth. We will be learning to analyse a text and its themes. Inspired by the play, we will write narratives and descriptions, letters, raps and sonnets and many more. Spelling, grammar and punctuation will be taught daily. We will write biographies, instructions and play scripts in science lessons.
In maths, Year 6 will be revising the knowledge they needs for SATs, mental maths skills and conducting investigations. We will be securing our methods and applying these to a variety of contexts.
PE is on Thursday. Please make sure your child brings appropriate kit (a t-shirt that covers the mid-drift, shorts/tracksuit bottoms and trainers). Please note earrings are not to be worn and if PE is outside, children may wish to bring a jumper.
