Welcome to Shakespeare Class – Year 6
Class Teachers: Miss Dade
TA: Mrs Kevlin
Our topic question this half term will be ‘How has industry changed the world we live in? We will be looking at the ‘Industrial Revolution’ and the impact this had on Britain. We will then be finding out about the impact of industry today. Our book in this topic will be ‘The Lost Thing’ by Shaun Tan. 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 Division and Fractions. We will also be focusing on our times tables and continuing with ‘Learn it’ challenges.
Our PE day this term will be Monday and they will be doing gymnastics with Mr Chadwick. The children will also be doing Netball with Mrs Peacock, however the day will change each week, it is therefore essential that your child has a full PE kit in school every day. As the weather gets wetter please ensure that your child has wellington boots in school, we have had some children getting ‘soggy’ feet in trainers so wellies are vital. Please make sure all these items are clearly named.
Thank you for all your support with homework so far this year. This is really important to consolidate the children’s learning from the week. Just to remind you, homework will be handed out on a Friday and needs to be returned by the following Wednesday.
