Welcome to 6R!
I hope you have had an fantastic summer and are ready for the new year! Our Creative Curriculum topic this term will be World War II. It's been so great to see the the thoughtful and well researced projects that were completed by the children during the holidays. This term children will explore World War II from a variety of perspectives.
In English we will be reading Rose Blanche and Goodnight Mr Tom. Both are set within the war years and offer differing perspectives for the children to explore. We will be focusing on narrative, diary and newspaper writing.
In Maths this term we will be focusing on place value, addition, sutbraction, multiplication and division. We will also be working on skills to help improve mathematical fluency (e.g. number bonds including decimals). Children will have Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRFs) to practice each half term.
Art, Science and RE will be taught every week.
Children will have Guided Reading and Handwriting lessons daily.
Music Trax will be taught every Wednesday.
Steel Pans will be taught every Monday
Drama with Ellie will be taught every Tuesday and Wednesday.
Homework will be sent home every Friday. This will need to be returned by the following Wednesday at the latest so that it can be marked.
PE is on Mondays and Wednesdays. Children must wear the full Julian's PE kit and black plimsoles.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask or send me an email.
