Welcome to Year 6 Class Page!
Curriculum: This half term, children will engage in a historical and narrative unit: World War Two. In history lessons, they will learn why WWII took place, which countries were allied, what happened during WWII and more. This learning will conclude with a persuasive letter pleading with Neville Chamberlain to support Poland and go to war against Germany.
During the narrative aspect of this unit, children will study When the Sky Falls by Phil Earle. They will make predictions from the front cover and blurb, analyse the characters and their differing personalities, discuss themes throughout the story and finally create a piece of narrative writing.
Maths: This half term, children will continue to develop their arithmetic skills, finish their units on fractions, decimals and percentages, understand how to use, plot and find coordinates, describe translations, convert between different units of measure (such as metres to kilometres), analyse statistics and more.
PE: Children will continue to have swimming lessons every other week. During the opposite week, they will focus on athletics. They will practise the skills required for various track and field events.
RE: The next RE unit is Salvation. Children will work towards answering the question: What difference does the resurrection make to Christians?
