Class 20 Year 6 2019 - 2020

Mrs MacPherson

 

Welcome to Class 20's page!

Welcome back to school! We hope that you have had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and are now refreshed, revitalised and ready to try your very best in the run up to SATs.

English

Our key text this half-term will continue to be 'Secrets of a Sun King' by Emma Carroll. Themes include fiction and non-fiction writing based on our topic work, guided reading and other areas of interest.  We will be looking to expand narrative and write stories containing flashbacks and dialogue.  We will also be spending time on non-fiction genres such as biography, argument and explanation producing independent pieces of writing.

 Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar are still areas of focus and we will be teaching the skills that the children need to be able to use to support their writing and the SATs in May during regular revision sessions throughout the term.

 

Maths

The main theme throughout this term will be to encourage the children to rapidly recall expected maths facts: both addition/subtraction and multiplication/division; the use of high understanding and high efficiency methods within the four functions (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). However, it will be their ability to apply these skills, and to explain reasoning, that will improve their mathematical understanding the most.  Our areas of focus are:

  • Fractions
  • Decimals
  • Percentages
  • Algebra
  • Measures
  • Ratio and proportion

 

R.E - Exploring the Mass

This topic gives the children awareness that Jesus is the bread of life and that He has made a New Covenant with us.  They learn about the significance of the different parts of the Mass – the beginning, the Offertory, the Consecration and Holy Communion.  They learn that the Eucharist is the source and the summit of life and the Catholic faith.

Science

During our Science topic we will be learning about electricity and its uses.  We will investigate how circuits are assembled, how the brightness of bulbs can be altered and how electricity was used in WWII – Morse Code etc.

 

History/Geography

This half term our curriculum topic will focus on World War II. We will learn about the Allied and Axis Powers, the key events and duration of the war, rationing, The Blitz, evacuation and many other key issues such as the use of propaganda.  The topic will give the children a full insight into the reasons for the outbreak of war and how the war was won.

 

As always, thank you for your continued level of support. If you require any further information, including important calendar dates, then please refer to the curriculum map which can be downloaded directly from this page.

I very much look forward to enjoying another exciting half-term with you all!

Mrs MacPherson.
