Welcome to Class 6!

 

Literacy

In English this half term we will be reading the Novel 'Kensuke’s Kingdom' by Michael Morpurgo. This will lead us into writing persuasive letters and writing narrative descriptions of settings. In guided reading we will be analysing Past Sats papers in order to improve our skills.

Topic

This half term we will be studying the Ancient Greeks.  We will be looking at the rivalry between Athens and Sparta, leading to the Battle of Marathon. We will also study the architecture and the history of the Olympic Games. It would be rude not to take a look at the stories of the Greek Gods - so expect the pupils to be coming home with many tall tales, myths and legends!

PE

P.E. Will continue on a Thursday with our specialist coaches. Please could all parents ensure the pupils have outdoor and indoor kit available, to ensure pupils are equipped for the lessons.

Homework

Homework will continue on Fridays and will be due in the following Tuesday. Please ensure you listen to your child read at least three times a week. This is still important at year six. Please also ensure your child knows their times tables by heart and learns their weekly spellings. This will really help with their SATs.
