This term, our topic will be 'Our Island's Coasts', learning about the physical geography we see on the shores of the British Isles. The topic will also link nicely to art, writing and also our science learning, where will be learning about evolution and inheritance.
Our author of the term will be William Shakespeare! We will read abridged children's versions of his stories and consider some of the themes within them. Alongside reading these as a class, we will also be encouraging Year 6 to develop their own independent reading and helping them to find books, newspapers, comics, graphic novels, poetry, works of fiction and non-fiction that they enjoy. Helping to support reading at home does have a huge benefit to children - in developing both their academic and social-emotional confidence.
Our maths learning will focus on place value and understanding our number system (to three decimal places and up to ten million). We will also be working hard to identify key skills that may require revisiting and additional support, as we would any year.
If there are any questions or concerns that you or your child may have, please let us know, perhaps sending a note in with your child or calling the office if you don't see us at drop-off or pick-up time. We really want all of the children to thrive in Year 6 and quickly settle into positive routines!
Here's to a great year together!
