Year group -   6

Our topic for the Autumn term is Victorian Britain.

Welcome back, we do hope you have a great year!

Religious Education

Our topic is ‘Beginning with God’. We will learn how to make links between scripture and the nature of God expressed in some Biblical metaphors. We will make links between Scripture and belief in the Trinitarian nature of God and describe and show understanding of God from two sources of revelation: Scripture and the Nicene Creed.  Children will show how belief in God as the Trinity has developed over time.

 

Ideas to support your child in our topic work:

Visit the BBC KS2 website: www.bbc.com/bitesize/topics/zcjxhyc/resources/

Explore famous Victorians online: http://primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/victorians.html

Walk through a virtual Victorian house: http://www.geffrye-museum.org.uk/learning/walk-through-a-victorian-house/walk-through/

Share the stories of Charles Dickens by enjoying the books (perhaps an abridged version) or watching stage or film adaptations. Read or retell scary Victorian stories.

English
We shall begin by studying the novel Street Child by Berlie Doherty. The novel is set in the 1860s and is based on the first Barnardo boy. We shall also find out about the work of Barnardos today, and visit the Ragged School Museum.

Perhaps you could ask your child facts they learned or look out for Doherty’s other books at the library. It is very important that children use good reading habits and have access to a range of reading opportunities (books, magazines, e-books, newspapers, information). Please read daily with your child, ask them questions about their reading and sign his or her reading record.

 

Maths

We begin with a focus upon place value (read, write, order and compare numbers up to 10 000 000 and determine the value of each digit.) We will then revise the four operations, including long multiplication and division. After half term, our focus is fractions. Children will need to know their multiplication tables off by heart (to 12 x 12), so please support your child in rehearsing them frequently. It would be great if you could ask your child to help with shopping (calculating money or comparing offers) as we will focus on problem-solving.

Science
We will study Living things and their habitats. As part of this topic, we will learn about different animals and plants and construct keys to classify them according to their characteristics.


This is a challenging year as we endeavour to ensure that each child is ready for secondary school and that they have the right work routines in order to be successful learners. Please join us in encouraging them to be focused and resilient and to take responsibility for their own learning and behaviour.

 

Many thanks, the Year Six team.
