Where the learning happens!...
Our Creative Curriculum Topic for Autumn Term is:
Behind Enemy Lines
We have a very exciting term ahead of us in Year 6, we are going to be learning all about World War Two.
Throughout the term, children will learn about major events during WW2, what life was like during the war, what impact the war had on society, gender roles in WW2 and much more.
In class, we are reading the book, Letters From the Lighthouse. Letters from the Lighthouse is a historical mystery set in WW2 times. When Olive's sister goes missing during an air raid, Olive is determined to find out what happened to her. She then finds a strange coded note which seems to link Sukie to Devon, and to something dark and impossibly dangerous. We are loving it so far and are excited to find out what happens!
Have a look at some of our amazing learning so far in our class blog!
Our Creative Curriculum Topic for Spring term is
Survival of the Fittest!
This term’s learning will be based around the topic of ‘Survival of the Fittest' where we will be making comparisons between California and Manchester. We will learn about the rivers that run through these places and natural disasters that occur in both. In particular, earthquakes and the impact they have on our earth.
Throughout the term, children will be describing and understanding key aspects of earthquakes, using maps, atlases, and globes to locate countries and describe features studied, looking at geographical similarities and differences through the study of human and physical geography of a region of the UK and a region within North America and finding out about environmental regions, key physical or human characteristics, countries, and major cities in North America.
Our homework project for this term is saved in our class files.
During this term we will learning about how to recognise that light appears to travel in straight lines, use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain that objects are seen because they give out or reflect light into the eye, explain that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes and use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain why shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them.
Our Creative Curriculum Topic for Summer Term is:
Raiders or Traiders?
During the Summer term we will be learning all about the Romans! We will learn about the Roman Empire and their impact on Britain.
We will discover what they invented, how they traded, where they invaded and what impact this made on British society.
Information for Parents
We have PE every Wednesday and Friday. Please can you ensure your child comes to school wearing the correct kit (white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps/trainers).
Spellings and times tables practise activities will be sent home every Friday. Please encourage your child to practise these at home as both are cruical in your child's learning.
We do our spelling test every Friday. Please practise the spelling words which are sent home with your child. We have a spelling leaderboard in our class and the child to get to 100 points first wins a prize!
In Year 6, we recommend children read every night. This is extremely important as it allows children to develop their minds and imagination, have a stronger understanding of the world, become a better learner and listener and will ultimately allow them to become successful in Year 6 and in their future life.
You can now log your child's reading on GoRead! On this app, your child's reading journey will be kept all in one place, comments can be made from parents and teachers, and your child can earn and spend their virtual gems!
At Abingdon Primary School we use a commucation app called Class Dojo. We use this to engage parents by sharing photos and videos of exciting moments in the classroom. It is also an effective way for teachers and parents to communicate.
Times Table Rock Stars
In Year 6 it is crucial that children know their times tables up to the 12x table.
At Abingdon, we use Times Tables Rock Stars. This is an exciting and engaging way for children to practise, and become fluent in, their times tables. Children are encouraged to play at home to improve their speed and scores.
They can also earn points and certificates through Times Table Rock Stars, so please encourage your child to play at home.
Year 5/6 Statutory Spellings
Below is a list of spellings all Year 6 children should read and write by the end of the year. These words are sent home as part of their spellings each week. Please help support your child's learning by practising these at home.
