Autumn 1

Year 6 are starting the year by learning about the effects of World War 2 on Britain as part of our whole-school local history focus. To enrich our understanding of what it was like to be a child during World War 2, we will be reading Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo as a class, which we will use to inspire our writing. During the autumn term, we will be writing non-chronological reports, diary entries, balanced arguments and biographies based on the our chosen core texts and also linking to Black History Month, when we will explore the experiences of black and minority ethnic people in South Africa during Apartheid.

In maths, we will consolidate our understanding of place value and learn how this helps us to read, write and compare large whole numbers and decimal numbers.  We will learn how to partition and combine numbers in different ways, which will expand our repertoire of calculation methods. We will further develop our understanding and build our skills in using the four operations to solve problems.

In science, our focus is ‘Light’. We will be learning about shadows, how we see, how light is reflected and the phenomena of refraction through exploring, observing and conducting investigations. In RE, we will be learning about the practices of Sikhism and what it means to be a Sikh. We also look forward to developing our core drawing skills in art this half term!
