What are we learning about in Term 4?
Welcome to term 4, soldiers. This term you will learn about the horrors and heroism of the war, the courage and sacrifice of the people who fought and lived through it, and the changes and consequences of the war on the world and humanity. So keep your spirits high and your minds sharp, Falcons, and let us tackle this next term of adventure and learning!
Maths Our learning this term will cover the following topics: fractions, percentages and decimals; finding the area of a range of shapes including triangles and parallelograms and statistics where we will find out how to draw and interpret pie charts and find the mean.
Our class text is ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’ and all of our writing will be based on this gripping story. This will be a very busy term of writing a missing person’s report, diary entries, character descriptions, formal speeches and finish off with creating a radio broadcast using IT.
What was Life Like During WW2? Our history this term will all be about World War 2. Children will find out about the causes of war, how civilians supported their country, what some of the significant events were and finish by creating some artwork based on this.
Religious Education This term we will be learning about Easter and answer the question, ‘What difference does the resurrection make for Christians?’
In Science this term we will be learning about ‘Living Things and their Habitats’. Children will find out about classification of animals and plants and learn about the amazing world of micro-organisms.
Computing this term will be about using spreadsheets to help sort and organise data in useful ways.
PE Our Monday
PE sessions will focus on developing our tactics in invasion games. It is now the second half of the class’s turn for swimming on Thursday.
Here’s to an excellent term, Mr Churchill and the Year 6 Team.
Homework will consist of a multiple choice grid with many different types of activities to choose from which are all based around our topic. The children will be responsible for completing a task each week and recording it in the home learning book. Photographs or any documents can be stuck into books and any models etc can be brought into school to be presented to the rest of the class if they wish.
For Maths home learning, the children have access to Times Tables Rock Stars and Prodigy, of which the login information can be found in their reading record. The children also have access to Spelling Shed to help them practise their spellings which are sent home weekly.
Remember to keep up with the reading at home in order to get through as many books as possible on the Accelerated Reader scheme and accrue the number of points needed for the term.
Home learning may also be supplemented from time to time with other activities to reinforce learning we do in class.
All homework will be awarded housepoints as well as housepoints given for reading quizzes. These will be added to each child's termly acrual in class to work towards a prize.
Any help and support given with home learning is greatly received. Thank you for your continued support.
Below you will find links to websites and documents which will be useful for home learning.
