Spring Term 1     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 February. If you have any questions or queries about anything to do with your child’s time at school, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Theme- We have some exciting themes this year and are starting off with " What is The Shang Dynasty?" Children will find out what the Bronze Age was like in China, consulting ancient history books and archaeological finds to compare evidence and draw conclusions about a wide range of features.

Mathematics In Maths, the children will identify angles, lines of symmetry. Recap the knowledge of 2-D and 3-D shapes, 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 Monday), PE lessons every Friday.

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? This topic will introduce children to Buddhism in a lively and engaging way, provide them 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.

ICT We are market researchers-Researching the app market

PSHE children will learn about their rights and responsibilities, recap protected behavior and discuss generosity.
