Welcome to the year 6 page - Autumn term 2019
In the first half of this term we will be studying ‘War Horse’ by Michael Morpurgo. There will be a big focus on broadening our children’s vocabulary and applying this into the children’s writing this year, as well as a sharpening of the children’s understanding of grammar. After half-term, we shall be introducing the children to the work of William Shakespeare through the play of Macbeth.
We will be starting our work looking at place value, progressing on to addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Within this, children will be faced with a range of problems to solve. We will be working hard at making sure the children know their times tables, and would appreciate it if you could encourage your children to continue learning them at home! Children will be provided with homework books during the Autumn Term which will serve as excellent revision for the end of year SATs.
This term we will be looking at Light followed by Electricity.
All of year 6 will be working on this approach that looks to build resilience in our learners, concentrating on how we learn and what active learning feels like.
Although our PE sessions take place on a Thursday, P.E kits are required to be in school every day. Kit consists of black shorts, white t-shirt (with or without the school logo) and trainers. This term we will be doing sports hall athletics, dance and hockey.
We are very fortunate to have our own pool here at Trinity, and we feel that it is very important that children take advantage of this resource. Children will swim every other week.
This term, the overarching topic is 'War’ - reflected in our English, and our History lessons, which will focus on World War I in the first half of the term and The English Civil War in the second half.
