Sping Term 2     Newsletter            Class 6   

Ms Brame 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 April. 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 you know your country?

Children will learn all about how the UK is organised into countries, counties and cities, as well as learning about the human and physical features of Great Britain, such as population, life expectancy, tallest mountains, longest rivers, coastlines and much more.

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 What do we know about electricity?

Children will consolidate their knowledge of circuits and how they work and then goes on to extend their knowledge of electricity through a variety of fun, practical and informative activities, including looking at conventional circuit symbols and exploring how to change the brightness of a bulb or the speed of a motor within a circuit.

ART/DT Who is Gustaw Klimt?

Children will find out all about one of the great symbolists - Klimt's life and art work. There are opportunities throughout for children to closely study his work and learn about the symbolism within them, as well as to compare Klimt's work to that of other artists.

PE – Swimming (every Wednesday), PE lesson on Thursday.

MUSIC Exploring rhythm and pulse

RE How do people express their faith through the arts?

Children will get a chance to find out how, why and when music, drama and art are used in religions around the world. These arty lessons provide plenty of opportunity for your class to learn how other people express themselves as well as learning how to use their own artistic talents to portray ideas about God.
