Well, Year 6 has got off to a flying start and we have so loved having the children back with us! Thank you for your support with your children reading the novel ‘Wonder’ over the summer; this is our focus text for the term and the children have been so enthusiastic about it (check out our fabulous artwork based on the book!).

In English this term, our focus genres will be setting descriptions, letter writing and poetry; watch this space for performance poetry on Seesaw. In Maths, we will be exploring problem solving with the four operations, along with fractions and some geometry.

Look out for the children speaking about their work in DT with Mrs Lally (gears) and PE with Mr Brown (hockey), and we know that Madame Dale is very excited to get started with the French learning on a Wednesday afternoon. During these sessions, she will prepare the children for secondary school languages with different verb forms.

The children will turn into philosophers to explore the RE question: “What does it mean if God is holy and loving?”. In geography, the children will embed and extend their atlas skills, with close reference to North America, and history will begin farming methods from the earliest settlers, all the way up to the Industrial Revolutions; we will be lucky enough to receive a visit from a local historian.

It’s an exciting term ahead and we look forward to sharing the children’s successes with you.
