Welcome to Shakespeare Class – Year 6
Class Teachers: Miss Dade
TA: Mrs Kevlin
Our topic question this term is ‘Were the Vikings always victorious and vicious?’, looking at the Viking invasion, Viking longboats and how the Vikings lived. On Thursday 8th February, we will be having a ‘Viking day’, we will take part in a range of Viking activities including cooking. The children are invited to dress up for this day, we will be making Viking helmets in class if the children want to wear these on the day.
In English we will be studying the book ‘How to train your dragon’, our writing work will all be linked with this. This will include: hybrid instructions, diary entries as if we were a Viking, discussion texts ‘Could dragons have ever existed?’ and non-chronological reports.
In Maths we are going to be revising the written method for division, BODMAS – ordering mathematical operations, percentages and measures. There will continue to be homework set each week based on the areas of maths we have covered that week.
In Science our topic is ‘How could you light up your life?’ we will be extending our understanding of how light travels, how shadows are formed and how our eyes use light to see.
Our PE days this term will be Monday and Wednesday; please ensure your child has a full PE kit. These items should be clearly named. Alongside this Year 6 also have the opportunity to do Forest School this term with Mrs Munns, you should have received a letter at the end of last term.
