Where the learning happens!...
Our Creative Curriculum Topic for Autumn Term is:
Fight for Your Rights!
This term we will discover the fascinating history of human rights and we will explore why rights are so important to us. We will learn about the history of how rights have adapted and changed over time. We will explore significant people who have fought for rights in the past, such as: The Suffragettes, Martin Luther King, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Nelson Mandela and we will learn about their crucial impacts on the world we live in today!

Our Class Read:
This term we are reading Skellig!
When a move to a new house coincides with his baby sister's illness, Michael's world seems suddenly lonely and uncertain. Then, exploring a ramshackle garage with new-found friend Mina, he finds something magical. A strange creature - part owl, part angel, a being who needs Michael's help if he is to survive.
With Mina's help, Michael nourishes Skellig back to health. The creature is ill-mannered, with questionable personal hygiene, but persevering in their kindness towards him, Michael and Mina find a bond forms betwen them that will change their lives forveer.
This unusual and captivating novel from critically-acclaimed children's author David Almond won both the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Children's Book Award. A contemporary classic, it has the power to captivate both adults and children alike.
Properties and Changes of Materials
In Science this term we will: compare and group together everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including their hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity, we will learn that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution, we will use knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated, including through filtering, sieving and evaporating. We will also give reasons, based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, for the particular uses of everyday materials, including metals, wood and plastic, and also demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes and explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials.
Information for Parents:
We have PE every Monday and Tuesday. Please can you ensure your child comes to school wearing the correct kit (white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps/trainers).
Please read our newsletter for the Autumn term:
Our homework project for this term is saved in our class files.
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.
