Class Update 

 Dear Year 6 Parents

We have continued with our theme of the ‘Battle of Britain’; learning about the impact of the Blitz and how it was a significant turning point in both historical and technological terms.

It was all brought to life with a fantastic trip to Brooklands Motor Museum, where seeing the size of the aircraft as well as their development and progress amazed the children.  Brooklands itself was bombed during WWII and the children saw the shelters as we travelled to the various hangars.  They have written excellent recounts and we are now busy researching and preparing for writing a letter from an evacuee back to their parents in the 1940s.

 

We will be enjoying a ‘Wow Day’ next Tuesday 31st January, where the children will be invited to dress up and bring artefacts or information about their own grandparents’ and great-grandparents’ war experiences.

A folder is now uploaded on Showbie for English in Year 6 with spelling and grammar revision as well as writing criteria.

We are revising grammar on a weekly basis and please continue to support with homework, which we link to the week’s focus.

If you are able to purchase or donate a copy of ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’, set in WW2 - which we are reading as our class book and is starting to become very exciting – we would be very grateful.

 

In maths, we have now completed the chapters on decimals and units of measure.  We have started with percentages, which will be followed by ratio.

In science, we are working scientifically to determine the effect of including more components and more cells in a circuit.  Our DT is linked to this as we design and make a game with an electrical component, using form and function as a focus. 

We look forward to seeing you at the SATs information meeting on February 6th at 6pm, please remember to reply to the email sent by the office yesterday.

With best wishes

The year 6 team.
