Term 2 - 20th Century Conflicts
This term, our wider curriculum will take a history focus. We will be exploring a number of conflicts that took place across the 20th Century such as (but not limited to) women's rights activists, Windrush and the Civil Rights Movement. Children will be given an opportunity to explore how things have changed and progressed over a certain period of time to create the freedom and opportunity they have in their lives today.
In English, we will be exploring 'Boy 87' written by Ele Fountain. You can find out more about our chosen author by reading our author profile HERE. We will explore different elements of the text and draw from it a wide range of texts such as newspaper articles, poetry and narratives.
In our reading sessions this term we will be taking the opportunity to conduct an in-depth read into our class book mentioned above. As well as exploring our narrative, we will explore a range of non-fiction texts that will build on our understanding of what it means to be a refugee in a range of different countries. Along with non-fiction texts on the subject, we will look at other narrative writes based around the same subject.
Take a look at our book map for more linked reading HERE.
In term 2, we will be looking at different methods of division (long, short and place value). We will also be moving on to study 2D and 3D shapes and nets - including but not limited to shape properties, shape nets and shape translation.

How can you help at home?
Children are expected to read at home at least five times each week for fifteen minutes. At least one of these times needs to be with an adult but please read more often with your child if you are able. Children are expected to write the date of the read, the book they are reading and the pages they have read in that day. Please ensure that you check and sign reading records each week. Reading records will be checked every Friday.
Reading comprehension question stems can be found here.
This year, Year 6 will be trialling a new way of spelling. The premise of this trial is that spelling should be 'taught not caught'. We will be doing daily and weekly spelling sessions but will not be sending spelling lists home for weekly spelling tests. We recognise that this is different from previous years and will be different from other year groups this year but please bear with us - we hope this new way of working will see great improvement in spelling!
By Year 6, the children should be confident with all times table facts so constant practice at home will help to embed this. Children are encouraged to practise maths facts using their Maths Shed log in, as often as possible.
The children will be continuing with Maths Planets this year and will carry on from their end point in Year 5. There are sample papers on the maths page of the website to give you an idea of what each stage will look like. Please encourage your child to practise their maths facts at least three times per week. If your child is stuck on a level for more than four weeks, then we will intervene at school.
