St. Francis’ Class (Year 6)

Welcome

Welcome back after the Summer break – myself and Mrs Davis hope that you enjoyed a refreshing summer, whatever you did and wherever you went.

This is term 1 for Year 6 – it’s hard to believe that the school year has arrived once again! This half term will last for 7 weeks and the last day will be Thursday 21st of October, returning for term 2 on Monday 1st of November.

 In English, we will study Tom’s Midnight Garden as our base novel and explore several writing outcomes including letter writing, documentary script writing, poetry, diary writing, descriptive and persuasive writing.

 In Maths, we will study place value and the four operations.

 In Science, we will focus on the theme of Light. We will investigate properties of light using scientific methodology.

 Our topic this term will be a historical investigation of the latter stages of World War 2 and how Britain was rebuilt.

PE this term will focus on Hockey and Multi Skills. It will take place outside on Thursday and Friday afternoons. The pupils will go home in PE kit on these days so it can be washed. Please ensure that your children arrive at school on Thursday mornings with their full PE kit.

Mr Hunter and Mrs Davies
