Curriculum Information – Summer Term 2

Learning in Action: Tuesday 18th June at 2:30pm  – Join and take part in your child’s learning in their classroom.

English

We will be focusing on ensuring that our writing is up to year 6 standard. We will be writing a letter of complaint from a wolf’s perspective about how they are portrayed negatively in literature. We will also write a non-chronological report on wolves based on our book, The Wolves In The Walls.

Maths

Over the next half-term, the children will be enhancing their skills in mathematical investigations and problem solving. This will enable them to use previously learnt skills and prepare them for high school and beyond.

Topic (Science)

This half-term, our topic is ‘Being Human’.  During this topic, we will be applying our knowledge and skills:

R.E.

We will be looking at continuing to develop our knowledge of Sikhism and what it means to be part of the religion. We will also look at what objects are important to the Sikh faith.

P.S.H.E.

During this half term, year 6 will look at feelings and in particular, how the way we speak to others can affect the feelings and emotions of that other person.

P.E.

We will be continuing to have a sports coach into school to take pupils on a Wednesday afternoon. They have been focusing on jumping and coordination and will move onto throwing balancing.

Homework

Homework will be sent out on a Tuesday to be returned by the following Monday. There may be some additional writing and handwriting homework sent home for those who need it.

Continuing reading – It is vital that children in Year 6 continue to read at home regularly. Reading books should be taken home from school and changed on a regular basis.
