Welcome to Year 6!

We would love to celebrate with you what we have been doing so far this year.

Welcome to Year 6!

We are so excited to begin the journey of your final year with us! 

This half term we will be learning all about the Tudors. 

 

This half term we will be learning all about the Tudors with a focus on the monarch and the influences they had on society today. We will begin in English with a biography on Henry VIII where we will look at his reign as king and discover if he was truly as terrible as his reputation!

In DT, we will be investigating Tudor houses and how they are made. We will be designing our own walls for a Tudor house and then testing their strength!

In PSHE we will be focusing on British values and the important role they play in our lives. We will link this to our rights and responsibilities both in school and the wider world.

Our science topic this half term is ‘Animals including humans’. We will be learning all about the circulatory system and healthy life styles. Excitingly, we are even hoping to dissect a heart so we can learn all about the different parts and how blood travels through.

Homework

The children are expected to read at home at least 3 times each week. This can be with an adult or independent reading. It does not have to be more than 10 minutes each time but reading regularly will help with their comprehension skills. Their reading book and reading record must be brought into school each day.

Each week, a set of spellings will be sent home to be completed and memorised in readiness for their weekly spelling test. There will also be regular times tables tests.

The usual weekly homework will be sent home on Fridays to be completed over the weekend and returned to school on Tuesdays.

If any of the children are finding the homework, spellings or reading difficult, or have been unable to complete them at home, there will be a homework club at lunchtime on Tuesdays when they will complete it with support, if necessary.
