Spring Term - Year 6
Welcome back, we hope that you have had a lovely Christmas and a great new year. We are looking forward to getting back into the swing of Year 6 and term 2 is super important.
Our creative curriculum this term will focus on the International Slave Trade. We will study some significant first-hand accounts of the events which led up to it and the impact it had on African culture and America. We will be making a Jambalaya and looking at the foods and ingredients from the culture as well as tasting and thinking about why they use such items.
As the year is progressing we will now be focusing more on the necessary skills of Maths, English and Reading. This will be given out weekly and expected in the following week. We appreciate any support that you can give your child when completing this and encourage children to also attend homework club held after school on a Tuesday and a Thursday.
You will still be expected to do the following as ongoing learning for the year:
Learn times tables each week to become fast and efficient in their application for a test on Monday
Read every day for at least 10 mins in order to gain fluency and of course grow your mind! Complete and hand in log every Monday.
Learn spellings each week in order to identify patterns and use them in unfamiliar words for a test on Friday
Complete a Maths and English homework each week
Complete your homework project and hand in the last week before half term holiday
Bring your PE kit in for a lesson on Thursday
