Our project for the summer term is “How did the Victorians Change the World?”. The project has a focus on history which will be enhanced by our learning in art, music and dance.  We will be learning about in particular about how the industrial revolution impacted Warrington and the rest of the world. We will be developing art and music skills through studies on a Victorian artist (William Morris) and a Victorian musician (Edward Elgar).

English

In English, we will be writing a ghost story as part of our focus on narrative writing. We will be looking at all the features for his story type and uing dialogue effectively to advance action. We will have a very strong focus on embedding all of our learning from year 6 so far while extending our sentence types and vocabulary to include more formal language and the passive voice. Throughout all our writing tasks, the importance of editing and improving our work will remain a key feature of our learning. 

Maths

In maths, we will be focusing on shape objectives including area, perimeter, volume and angles. Towards the end of the term we will be revisiting some areas of number to ensure the children are fully prepared for secondary school.

Things to remember:

Important things to remember:

     PE 

  • PE lessons will be on a Wednesday and Friday. Children need a full kit and a change of suitable footwear which they should keep in school every day.

    Homework

  • On Monday we will set a piece of English homework.
  • On Thursday we will set a piece of maths homework.
  • In Year 6 we are keen to develop good habits for high school so homework is always due in the day after it is set. Year 6 children have special study and workbooks for homework tasks. Children are expected to look after these books and bring them to school every day. Work in these books should be completed in pencil or pen and should be neatly presented.

  • In addition to this homework, we are also expected to practise our reading and number skills daily. Just like in every other year group, we need to have our reading records and Mad-About–Maths books signed every day.

Important dates:

  • Borreaton Park residential Friday 2nd July - Sunday 4th July
