Welcome to Year 6!
This term our main theme this is World War 2.
In English, we will be working on our grammar through reading some exciting new genres that will inspire our writing such as Uncle Montague’s Tales of Terror by Chris Priestley. We will also be reading some eye-witness accounts of the Blitz during World War 2 and will write a letter home as an evacuee.
In Maths, we will be focusing on improving our fluency. We will also be developing our reasoning and applying skills through solving many different problems. Please help us practise where you can, especially by supporting your child with learning the time, using money and with their multiplication and division facts.
Our History will be an exploration into World War 2. We will learn why it happened and how it affected the people living in Great Britain. In Art, we have been developing our drawing skills and will continue to do this by studying WW2 planes. In addition, we will be carrying out an exciting design unit which will further develop our creativity.
