We have an exciting year of learning ahead with a revised curriculum and new topics to engage all pupils across the curriculum.

Our curriculum pages set out the topics for each subject area for the year, but our focus topics for this term are:

 

Science: Light and Electricity 

 

History: Ancient Greece and it's impact on western culture. As part of this unit, we will be welcoming some experts of Ancient Greek architecture to work with us to construct a replica of the Parthenon on Tuesday 8th October. 

 

Geography: Water, weather and climate in which we will explore the impact of humans upon the environment and consider a more sustainable.

Our timetable- please note, our timetable can vary slightly each week in response to other events in school and availability of resources.

Homework

Maths homework is set on a Tuesday and should be returned by Friday.

English homework is set on a Thursday and should be returned by Monday.

In November, pupils will be provided with CGP revision guides for maths and English and teachers we will set weekly homework from these.

In addition to this homework, we do expect pupils to read a good book regularly and add to their reading journal, as well as, regular practice of multiplication/division facts and spellings to try and make this learning 'stick' in their long term memory.

Planners

We ask Year 6 pupils to ensure they have their planners in school each day. We use the planner as an ongoing reading journal and to support learning in class. Once we have assessed pupils we will also highlight the spellings that your child can spell on the corresponding list in the back of their planner- this will be added to over the course of the year.

Music Lessons

Music lessons have started for the year. All pupils are asked to check the timetable and bring their labelled instruments in on the appropriate day. All instruments are now to be kept in the music room.
