Spring 1 Overview
The pupils in Class 6 are developing into well-motivated, hardworking students. They are expected to exhibit the highest possible standards of behaviour and schoolwork. We will continue to encourage your children to develop personal organisational skills, self-discipline and a greater degree of independence.
In R.E. we will be following the topic 'Exploring the Mass’. Children will continue to prepare their own collective worship as well as saying the more formal prayers.
In English, we will largely focus on writing in different styles - both formal and informal. The children will develop their ability to manipulate sentences to create particular effects. They will develop their confidence in using a wider range of vocabulary and punctuation. After this, the children will focus on using poetry to express how they have been inspired during Lockdown.
In Maths our work will include:
- Area and volume
In geography lessons, we will be focusing on North America. We will use our mapping and research skills to learn about North America.
In science, the children will learn about light. They will participate in experiments and draw conclusions from their findings.
In computing, the children will use the program 'Scratch' to develop their coding skills. They will manipulate script to program a sprite and eventually create their own game.
We will use P.E. sessions to take part in both a rugby and netball challenge as part of the local cluster of schools.
In Latin, we will explore more vocabulary and grow in confidence when speaking a different language.
I look forward to your support during this busy term.
