Spellings Sheet - Autumn 1

 Year 6 General Class Work/Information

Year 6 are learning about......

English

In English we are writing Blitz poetry. We are going to take inspiration from the stimulus Beyond the Lines. We will be writing our own poems.   

Each week we will be given words of the week. These words are ambitious, challenging and our teachers will try to spot them in our work. Our aim is to become a master of ambitious vocabulary!

Our class reader is Goodnight Mister Tom. If you wish to bring a copy to school, please do!

Maths

In maths this half term we are revising our knowledge of place value, addition and subtraction.

 

Topic

Our topic for the term is World War Two. We will learn about the war, the causes and how it was fought. We will also learn about evacuees, rationing,  blackouts and much more! 

Reading Questions

This bank of questions is grouped into different areas of reading.  The questions are useful for helping your child to think about the text they are reading in a more detailed way. It is by no means an exhaustive list but can provide as a useful starting point for helping adults to question a child about their reading.

See attached sheet.

School Field

We would like to extend the amount of time Y5 & Y6 pupils can play on the school field during the winter months. To accommodate this we would ask parents to provide an old track suit and old trainers that can be kept in school during this time. Only pupils with a spare set of clothes will be allowed on the field.
