Year 6

Welcome to Y6.

Reading Challenge Books

Welcome back! .

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to the summer term. It has been delightful to have our children back in school with lots of exciting things coming our way. Our theme for this half term is....Time Travellers. Now that some of the covid restrictions have been eased, we are able to enjoy some of the simplest things we took for granted: sitting facing each other in classes (instead of in rows), eating together in the lunch hall in our bubbles and planning exciting trips.  

English

This term in English we are retelling the story of the classic Charles Dickens’ novel - Oliver Twist. We are using a range of AP sentences and descriptive language to describe the treacherous conditions of the work house and the malicious treatment the orphans endured. After we have retold this classic tale, we will be innovating parts of it ourself to make this story our own. 

Maths 

This term we will start with finding areas of a range of shapes, then moving onto measure and finally ratio. 

It is really important that the children continue their key maths skills including learning their timestables and number bonds. These skills will be vital to support the children’s maths understanding. Log onto Times Tables Rock Stars to support your learning and to increase your fluency.  

Reading  

Reading continue to be a priority at HPACP and in Y6, we are still completing the reading challenge and children should have read 18 books by now. We understand that lockdown and remote learning may have slowed this down, but please do ensure that you are reading everyday at home with your child even if it is only 10-15 minutes per day. If you have any of our reading challenge books at home please return them once school re-opens. 

Summer 1 Learning Themes

This term we have some fantastic learning themes in history, geography and RE which we are sure the children will enjoy.

History

In History, we will be continuing to learn about Britain after the second world war. We will begin by understanding how WW2 ended and how London was reconstructed after the war. 

Following this, we will learn about the impact of some major events including 7/7 and the 2012 Olympics on London. 

Geography

In Geography, we will be learning about air pollution. To begin with, we will learn vocabulary relating to this topic. Following this, we will explore what air pollution is and ways to tackle this issue. We will also learn about the impact of air pollution and its relationship with trade and intensive farming. 

RE

In RE, we will explore the reasons ways and reasons for why people worship in different ways. We will begin by contrasting religious worship with secular acts of worship then comparing different ways religious groups worship. Finally, we will explore why people choose to worship in the ways they do. 

PE

Please make sure your children have their full PE kit including trainers, school top and shorts. If it is cold, the children can still bring in blue tracksuit bottoms to wear and a blue jumper. 

Y6 Production - Oliver Twist  

 We are so excited to announce that we will be performing our annual production in the form of....Oliver Twist. Children will be able to audition for the part which they would like to play. Following this, we will be in full swing of learning songs, dances and our lines from the script. Supporting us on this will be specialist teachers and professionals including a choreographer from the West End.
