Past and Present 

 

Our topic for this term is Past and Present. Year 6 will be travelling back in time this term to compare our world in the past to the modern day, as well as looking forward into the future with a strong focus on STEM subjects. 

Here are some of our learning areas:

  • Inventions from the past and the present and creating our own
  • Discussing the significance of the internet and debating whether or not it is a tool for good
  • Creating our own online articles 
  • Data and computational thinking
  • Shakespeare and Play scripts
  • Living things and their Habitats
  • Turning points in History e.g. Egyptians, Romans, Industrial Revolution 

This is just a sample of what we will be doing. Please read our termly plan below for further details and specific curriculum content: 

 

We will also be heading off on our Residential to Longtown, taking part in the Fiver Challenge, visiting our Secondary Schools as part of transition, preparing for our end of year show and much, much more.

Class Routines

Reading

Reading is an extremely important part of your child's learning. We will take every opportunity to listen to your child read throughout the week, therefore, we would kindly ask that you ensure your child's reading book and diary are returned to school each day and available on a daily basis. Pupils will also take part in guided reading sessions where we will look at specific reading skills. We would ask that you support us in school by spending 10 minutes a day reading with your child at home. This does not need to be listening to them read aloud now that they are in Year 6 but could be a chat about what they have read, what is happening in the story or who their favourite characters are.

PE

PE will be held on a Friday this term with Mr Smith. Please ensure that your child has appropriate kit available in school to take part in the session. Children are no longer permitted to wear their PE kit to school. Please ensure that their kit is brought into school in a clearly labelled bag.  

Homework

Homework will continue to be sent home weekly on a Friday. Please can you support your child in completing their home tasks. We try not to send too much homework, as we are very aware of how precious quality family time is after a day in work but we would greatly appreciate it if your child could return any homework by Wednesday every week. We will then ensure it is marked and discussed with your child. Children will have the opportunity to share their homework with their peers each week.

Snack and Dinner Money

Please pay for both snack and school dinners using Parent Pay. 

 

 

If you have any questions or queries about this year then please do not hesitate in coming to see us. 

Many thanks, 

Miss Fletcher, Miss Stephens and Miss Silva
