Welcome back to Autumn 2 in Year 6
This half-term our main topic is Islam.
Our topic this half term is Islam and we will be looking at this religion which is over 1400 years old. We will learn about what Muslims believe in, about the 5 pillars of Islam and the festivals and special holy days which they celebrate. We will also learn about how Muslims live their life and how they worship. We will think about Muslims living across the world, including Cornwall and the U.K.
In Mathematics we will be recapping addition, subtraction and multiplication and extending our confidence with division. Later on we will be mastering fractions.
Our new class novel is Listen Layla by Yassmin Abdel-Magied
We will be learning about stories from other cultures.
In science we will be learning about light. Later this term you will need to bring in a battery powered torch – we’ll let you know when.
Our P.E lessons are on Mondays and Thursdays.
Children are to come into school wearing their P.E kit on these days.
They can either wear their normal green school jumper/cardigan or their red hoodie should they wish.
As the weather gets colder, children might prefer to wear joggers or leggings (grey or black).
Our Maths focus is:
Number - place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
Below is a link to show you what we aim to teach in the first half of Autumn term in maths.
There is also a link to Hit the Button, a really useful way to practice your times tables.
Please encourage your child to log in to Times Tables Rock Stars as well to practice their tables.
Homework will be set on Fridays then collected in and marked on Thursdays.
Children may bring homework in earlier, if it is completed.
Homework club is available during Monday lunchtime for those who wish to attend.
We are teaching RSE (Relationship and Sex Education) this year in a slightly different way to previous years.
We will be revising the Year 4 and 5 units first, then the Year 6 units.
If you have any questions or queries, please contact the office by email in the usual way.
