Spring Term 1     Newsletter            Class 6   

Mrs Althorpe, Mrs Chowns and I would like to welcome you to the start of a new term. Within this leaflet you will find out about the themes we will cover up until February. I hope your child will have a productive and enjoyable time in my class this year. If you have any questions or queries about anything to do with your child’s time at school this year, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Theme- Do we need punishment for crime? Children will  take a journey through British history and discover how crime and punishment has changed throughout the ages. Beginning with the Romans and travelling right through to the present day, they will discover how changes in society create changes in the kind of crimes that are committed, as well as the ways in which they are punished.

Mathematics In Maths the children will read, write and order numbers. Add and subtract numbers mentally and using column methods. Know the multiplication facts for all times tables. Use units of time and relationship between them. Understand and use money notation £, p. Identify angles, lines of symmetry. Use and interpret numerical data in lists, tables and graphs to solve problems.

English The children will continue to read at their own level, and will have the opportunity to change their books daily if required. Reading checks will be carried out on a regular basis, and the skills children are developing will be reinforced throughout the curriculum. They will be encouraged to speak clearly and listen carefully to others, as well as participate in group discussions.  They will regularly share a variety of both fiction and non-fiction books.

Please continue to support your child with reading, as well as practicing spellings and doing homework at home.

Science Can you classify organisms?  Children will recap their knowledge of broad groups of organisms before taking a much more in-depth look at the classification system, how it works and how different species of organisms that are closely related can be identified.

PE – Swimming (every Wednesday).

MUSIC We will be exploring different sounds as well as rhythmic patterns. The children will listen to a variety of types of music, as well as learning new songs.

RE -What is Buddhism? - introduces children to Buddhism in a lively and engaging way, provide children with information about who Siddhartha Gautama was and how he became Buddha, what Buddhists believe, and how Buddhists worship, whilst also giving them the chance to think about the similarities of Buddhism with other world religions and getting them to ponder what they believe about life, death and everything in between.
