Please read below for all the fun and exciting topics we will be learning in the coming weeks. If you have any questions, then please don’t hesitate to ask one of the Year 6 team.
Updates, homework, and messages will also be shared on our class SeeSaw page.
If your child is at home self-isolating, work will be provided via Seesaw for your child to complete. This will replicate the work being covered in class. Please check Seesaw daily for updates and tasks set.
Reading at Home
We appreciate that it is not always possible to read every night with your child but we do ask that you make every effort to read at least 5 times per week with them. Reading at home doesn’t always mean their school reading books, it could be anything from a newspaper, magazine, kindle books to instructions of a board game! You may want to choose a book from ‘Christ Church Virtual Library’ which is filled with a variety of texts and audiobooks for you to read at home for FREE! You will find Christ Church Virtual Library on your ‘Task’ section on Seesaw. Simply click on a book cover of your choosing. I wonder which books will be your favourite? I wonder if anyone could get through them all?

Maths: Revision and Mastery
This half term, we will be revisiting, consolidating and embedding previous units taught this year to ensure our children are secure in basic maths skills to support them with their transition to High School. Units will include calculation, fractions, decimals and measurement. We will introduce new skills as and when appropriate depending on the needs of our pupils.
English: The Titanic
This half term, we will be studying a variety of narrative and non-fiction texts based on the theme of 'Titanic'. Within our English sessions, we will also be learning and applying specific grammatical features of each text type. Each week a spelling test will take place - spelling lists will be published on SeeSaw.
Recommended Reading: The Titanic Detective Agency and Pig Heart Boy
We will construct simple series circuits, to help answer questions about what happens when we try different components, for example, switches, bulbs, buzzers, and motors. We will also learn how to represent a simple circuit in a diagram using recognised symbols.
Our P.E days are Tuesday and Wednesday.
Please ensure that your child comes to school wearing their full P.E kit and usual green school jumper/cardigan on P.E days.
PE kit consists of: a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black PE pumps (inside lessons) or trainers (outside lessons). Children may wear black jogging pants in the colder months if they go outside.
History: The Changing Roles of Women
Geography: Earning a Living
RE: Pentecost and Ascension
Don’t forget to bring water bottles in each day - it is important for the children to stay hydrated throughout the day. Please put a label on bottles and refill them every day.
