Year 6

Eco – Warriors!

What a super start to Year 6! We have, so far, been learning all about plastic pollution and the eco – warriors of our generation. We will continue to learn about global warming, the importance of the ocean and how as individuals we can make a positive difference. We will also be implementing some exciting eco-initiatives around school (with the support of our amazing eco-club).

Axis and Allies

In the coming weeks, we will start our new topic called Axis and Allies, in which we will learn about all aspects of the Second World War including; propaganda, what life was like in Britain during this time, war tactics, the holocaust and territories gained and lost.

English

In English, we will be studying debate, biographies and explanation texts. This will link with our Topic work on ‘Axis & Allies’ (WWII). We will be writing and hosting debates in class, based on independent research. In reading, we will continue to work on our comprehension skills (in particular, selecting evidence from the text) through our class novel: ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’.

 

Maths

In mathematics we will be focussing on number – more specifically addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will be using the inverse to problem solve and check our answers. We will also, as a whole school, be practising our times tables in fortnightly blocks – focussing first on the 3 times table and working our way up to 12, including division facts also.
