Welcome to Shakespeare Class – Year 6
Class Teachers: Miss Dade
TA: Mrs Kevlin
Throughout the school our topics are now all based on a question, this term it is ‘How does life on the streets today compare across the world?’. We will be looking at modern day homelessness in the UK, with a visit from a homeless charity in Oxford. Then comparing this to homelessness across the world. We will start thinking about what we can do to help.
In English we will start off by looking at Pablo Picasso, writing a biography and thinking about his painting ‘The Weeping Woman’. Then our first book will be ‘Way Home’ by Libby Hathorn. This links to our topic work. Alongside this we will have specific SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) lessons once a week to learn all of these objectives.
In Maths we will be covering the objectives for Place value, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division, Fractions and Area and perimeter. Times tables, Beat That and Learn It challenges will be on going.
If you want to practise your times tables at home, here are some great games. Times tables help us in all areas of maths so it is important we know them really well and can recall them quickly.
Our PE days this term will be Tuesday and Wednesday. On Tuesday the children will be doing leadership skills with Mr Chadwick and on a Wednesday will be playing tennis with Mrs Peacock at the tennis club. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit and wellington boots in school at all times. These items should be clearly named.
Please see our Topic Web to find out more about what we are up to
As last year homework will be sent out on a Friday and needs to be returned by the following Wednesday in order for it to be marked. The homework will be a combination of SPaG, Writing, Reading and Maths work, consolidating what we have been doing in class during the week.
