Welcome to Class 6

All About us

General Information

English

In English this term, we will be reading Viking Boy by Tony Bradman which will link in and support our history topic. This text will allow us to look at basic grammar, spelling & punctuation. We will also use it as a stimulus for our writing this term, using parts of the story to write for different purposes (both fiction and non-fiction).

Children will be read with an adult on a daily basis either using the Oxford Reading Tree scheme or a Read Write Inc. book. Children who require phonics input will receive daily interventions using a Read Write Inc. scheme.

Maths

This term, we will look at area and perimeter, multiplication and division and then fractions, decimals and percentages. Daily morning maths will give children the opportunity to overlearn previously taught concepts and formal written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

Wider Curriculum

In our wider curriculum, we will be covering topics on properties of materials and then space in Science. Our History focus is ‘The Vikings’. Our Geography focus is ‘What shapes my world?’. In Computing, children will be learning to touch type, learning to stay safe online and using Logo. In DT children will be creating a pop-up book. In Art children will be exploring structures, looking closely at the work of Cai Guo-Qiang. In French, children will complete the unit ‘playtime – La recreation’. In PHSCE, our focus is ‘safety’ and ‘the changing body’. In Music, children will work with Durham Music Service to try a range of musical instruments and create music using Garage band. They will then study a unit looking at what music means to different people. Children will also complete regular music appreciation sessions. Finally, in RE the children will be looking at ‘What does God mean to Christians?’ and then studying the meaning behind Easter.

P.E

Our P.E lessons will be Tuesday afternoon where we will be studying dance covering the core task ‘machines’ in the first half-term. During the second half-term we will be developing tennis skills by covering the core task ‘mini tennis’. We will also be swimming on a Friday Morning.

Cooking

We cook on a Wednesday afternoon where children learn about different food, nutrition and life skills.
