This half term in the lead up to Christmas we will be enjoying many different topics.
In History we will be looking at Ancient Egypt, focusing on the discovery of Tutankhamun, and why the discovery of his tomb was so significant to history.
In science we will be looking at Classification of both living creatures and plants.
In Re we have two topics to cover, Belonging, which gives us an in depth look to commitment and the ordination of a priest. Then we will move on to our Advent topic of Loving, where we will think about the expectations of Christmas and the things we do in order to prepare.
In Art we will be looking at making detailed drawings using a magnifying glass.
In DT we will be looking at designing and making an item which includes more complex electrical systems eg an alarm.
This half term year 6 will be learning Tennis and Netball. The class have their PE sessions on a Thursday and Friday afternoon, they are expected to come to school in the correct PE uniform.
Spellings and times tables are sent out at the beginning of each half term and will be tested in class on a Friday morning. The children are expected to spend time learning these. In year 6, I ask the children to read independently on a daily basis and complete their own reading record, these will be collected in each half term. As year 6 is a transition year into secondary school, they are expected to complete homework on time and return it to school when requested. Consequences will be given for those who do not read, learn spellings or complete homework on time.
