Welcome to Term 1 in Year 6.
Term 2: World War 2
Following a hugely successful term learning about the Great War, the children will continue the historical focus by learning about the Second World War. To begin with, we will explore how the end of WW1 led into WW2 and then go on to learn about Winston Churchill, the Battle of Britain, Dunkirk, the Blitz and Evacuation. This is a rich and exciting topic that always enthuses and grips the children - we can't wait to explore it with them.
In English, our key text for the term is the evocative and thought-provoking book: Rose Blanche. This will inspire the children as they develop their skills in diary writing, descriptive writing, poetry composition and explanation text writing.
In Maths, our key areas of focus will be division and fractions. Will will begin by recapping short division, before going on to secure learning about how to solve problems that require long division.
For a full outline of what the children will be learning this term, please see the Topic Web for the term. This can also be accessed below and downloaded as an attachment, as well as knowledge mats for our different subjects.
Key Upcoming Dates:
Hook Day - Tuesday 7th November
Women of WW2 Workshop Monday 13th November
Anti-bullying week - Monday 13th November - Friday 17th November
