St. Francis’ Class (Year 6)
Welcome back after the Christmas holidays – myself and Mrs Davis hope that you had an enjoyable break.
It’s a busy term in Year 6 and the children have a lot to look forward to. This term in English, we will study Journey to the River Sea as our base novel. We shall explore various writing outcomes including informal letters, newspaper reports, play script writing, poetry, diary writing, character descriptions and biographies.
In Maths, we will study coordinate geometry, decimals, percentages, measurement and algebra & ratio.
In Science, we will focus on the theme of Animals and Humans. We will investigate various body systems and healthy living using scientific criteria.
After an enjoyable look at Britain since 1948 we will move on to our new topic of South America. PE this term be netball and tag rugby, and will take place outside on Monday afternoons. Please ensure that your children arrive at school on Monday mornings with their full PE kit.
