What to expect this term.

This term in Year 6, we will be looking at lots of new content in our lessons - we hope you are ready for the challenge!

During our English lessons, we will cover the following genres of text - time slips (if you haven't seen The Amazing Mr Blunden you might want to give it a watch),  journalistic writing, balanced arguments and letter writing  along with specific lessons for spelling, grammar, punctuation and reading. 

In maths we will be focusing on decimals, percentages, are and perimeter, ratio and proportion and algebra  – our best piece of advice is learn your times tables, you will need them all the way through this term.

In addition to what we are learning in English and maths we will also be working on increasing your pace and stamina so that you can get more work done in a given amount of time.

Our afternoon lessons will be focussed on the Amazon in geography, history of the Maya civilisation, and collage in art with a focus on Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes. In science we will be looking at light and shadow. As well as collective worship and Monday afternoons with Rev. Gill, we will be looking at journeys, how Christians celebrate the Eucharist. We will also be keeping busy with French lessons, DT, PE, PSHE and computing.

Later in the term we will begin to invite some of you to stay behind for a short while after school to help to prepare for national tests in the Summer term.
