Summer Term Information
Happy Summer Term! Our new topic is the Mayans and Mexico. We will be having a Geography and History focus split over the two half terms. Please see our knowledge organiser below to see what sticky knowledge they need to retain. Our Science topic is about the Properties and changes of materials. We will be doing lots of fun investigations and again please find our knowledge organiser below to see what sticky knowledge children will need to retain.
Our topic this term is split into two. During the first half term our topic is called 'Location, Location, Location'. We will be looking at two different countries. One being São Tomé and Príncipe and the other Croatia. To help support your children with this please look at our knowledge organisers below where they can look at their sticky knowledge and key vocabulary. In Science we will be looking at animals and humans (the knowledge organiser for this topic is below). Our key text this term is called 'The Man Who Walked the Wire' by Mordicai Gerstein.
During the second half term our topic is 'Crime and Punishment' where we will have more of a History focus. More information to follow for this....
Our topic this term is World War Two. Alongside this in Science we will also be learning about Light and Sound. You can find our knowledge organisers below to support you with your learning. We have a World War Two Hook Day on Monday 13th September 2021 and a trip booked to the Holocaust museum on the 24th November 2021. Sandwiched in between all of this is the Year 6 Residential Trip the week beginning the 4th October 2021. We look forward to working together to ensure we a have a fantastic year of learning.
A few reminders...
If, for whatever reason, your child has to isolate at home, we will be using Microsoft Teams to set tasks for your child to complete at home. By using Teams, we will be able to receive work back and give feedback on the work attempted.
Children have been given their logins and have had a number of times that they have logged on and found their way around the site.
Please make sure that you have downloaded the app (or use the online version) and can access the work. If you do not have access to the internet, please let us know.
We hope that there will not be a need to use Teams for isolation purposes - but, we will be using it for setting homework and weekly spellings.
