Hello Year 6!
Firstly, I hope everyone has enjoyed their Christmas break and is ready to get stuck into Spring term. I am really excited to be your new class teacher and look forward to the terms ahead in your last year of St Anne’s.
English: Street Child
Set in the second half of the nineteenth century, Street Child tells the story of Jim Jarvis who experiences a series of misfortunes. We will explore Jim’s misfortunes and use this model for our own narrative planning and descriptive writing. We will explore language use and how this impacts the reader, and draw inferences such as inferring characters’ feelings, thoughts and motives from their actions and justifying inferences with evidence.
We will be continuing our work on fractions from Autumn term. We will be building on our knowledge from Y5, looking at fractions on a number line, adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators. Then we will move onto looking at multiplying fractions and mixed numbers by integers. We will explore both fluency and problem solving questions.
The Way, The Truth and The Life: Exploring the Mass.
Y6 will explore what is the New Covenant Jesus made with us, how we can live-out our part in this New Covenant and what are two of the most important parts of the Mass. Children will explain how going to Mass can help us live our lives more fully and reflect on what is the blessed sacrament.
Theme: What did the Victorian era do for us?
This half term, Y6 will be exploring Victorian Britain. We will be looking at important figures within the Victorian era such as; Louis Pasteur, Queen Victoria, Joseph Lister and Isambard Kingdom Brunel. We will investigate what Victorian health care was like, how operations were performed and how certain people revolutionised the health care system, which we still continue to use to this day. Also, we will discover how the industrial revolution impacted Britain during the 1800s and changed the way people lived, allowing for travel around the UK.
Our PE will take place on Monday. Please continue to come into school wearing your PE kits or something suitable (shorts, polo shirt, tracksuits when it gets warmer, trainers).
Please do not hesitate to get in contact if you have any questions or queries:
I will do my best to answer questions as quickly as possible.
