Year 6N 2023 - 2024
Welcome to 6N
Welcome back after the half term break!
In English, we will be focussing on different genres of writing where the children have the opportunity to edit and redraft their work; ensuring each piece of writing shows their true potential. We will start by looking at blogs and reports, thinking about formal and informal writing. We will then be moving onto ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens. We will be reading the story in class and basing our writing around it. We will be using the thoughts and feelings of the characters to produce our writing. We will then move on to looking at narrative poems referring to ‘The Highwayman.’
In Maths, we will begin with fractions, thinking about equivalence and ordering. Then we will move onto looking at shapes; identifying the properties of shapes and calculating the area and perimeter. Children will be taking part in Freckles and answer questions that are marked automatically and then are tested at the end. We will continue with the competition between the classes on TT Rock stars, and we will see which class wins just before the end of the term.
In Science, we will be looking at light. Children will get the opportunity to observe how light travels and how shadows are formed.
In History, we are looking at Ancient Greeks and thinking about ‘Why we should thank the Ancient Greeks. We will be learning about how the Ancient Greeks have impacted the world we live in today.
In D.T, we will be designing and building our own shelters, making them durable, windproof and waterproof.
The Christian Value we will explore is ‘Trust'. This half term, we will be focussing on ‘Advent’ and sharing our thoughts as a class. The children will be answering Big Questions and posing their own.
We are looking forward to another exciting term with Year 6!
As always, if you have any questions about Year 6 come and speak to one of the teachers.
