Spring 2 Overview

The pupils in Class 6, on the whole, 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. our topic is 'Jesus, the Messiah’. Children will continue to prepare their own collective worship as well as saying the more formal prayers. We will be celebrating Lent and Easter with appropriate liturgies, hymns and drama.


In English, the children will focus all their learning around one key text: Goodnight Mr Tom. The children will explore the book and use it as a stimulus for writing. The outcome will be a piece of writing in character.  


Our maths topics will be fractions, decimals and percentages; and perimeter, area and volume. The children will also be revising past topics to ensure that their knowledge is kept at the forefront of their minds.


In science, the children will learn about light. They will participate in experiments and draw conclusions from their findings.


In computing, the children will complete a Kidsafe unit with Mrs Ronson. This will cover lots of elements such as peer pressure and how to stay safe online.


In geography, the children will continue to broaden their knowledge of North America. 


In history, the children will revisit and broaden their understanding of World War Two.


In design technology. the children will take part in a project planned by the Royal Opera House. They will learn about stage design and use this knowledge to help them plan and create scaled staging props for the ballet performance of 'Alice in Wonderland'.


During P.E. lessons we will be focusing on cricket and dance. The dance unit will be led by our dance teacher, Kathryn. As the weather improves we will be using the outdoor area more so the children are encouraged to wear leggings or plain tracksuit bottoms.


In Latin, we will explore more vocabulary and grow in confidence when speaking a different language. Towards the end of the term, the children will begin working on performing a Latin play.


I look forward to your support during this busy term.
