Welcome back year 6!
We hope you have had a lovely Easter holiday and are looking forward to another term in year six. We all worked incredibly hard the last term and we have been busy planning lots of exciting lessons and opportunities for this term.
Our topic in school this term is Ancient Greece. The subject areas we will be covering are History, Art and Design and Technology. We will be learning about daily life in Ancient Greece, the battles which took place and key achievements from the time period. We will also be learning about the legacy of the Ancient Greeks. You will have the opportunity to sketch, plan and make your own Grecian pottery.
In Guided Reading, we will be reading Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan. Why not see if you can borrow a copy to read along with? In our English lessons, we are looking at writing in a range of genres with a particular focus on developing mood and atmosphere and using dialogue to convey character.
In Maths, we will be learning about ratio and proportion, algebra, geometry and statistics. Towards the end of the term, we will be applying our knowledge to problem-solving questions. Each week, we will continue to have an arithmetic test.
Your homework continues to be the same as last term: reading at least three times a week, practising your times tables via the Times Tables Rockstars website and learning weekly spellings.
We hope you are looking forward to the term as much as we are.
Miss Ives, Mrs Kaur and Mr March
