Welcome to the second half term of Year 6! Our full overview of the first half term can be found on this page. In science we will be learning all about astronomers from the past and in history we will be learning about World War 1 and the centenary, related to our whole class text 'Armistice Runner.' As with all learning, the overview may change if children take a particular interest in an aspect of a topic.
A couple of websites which relate to our topics and also to revision of maths and English:

- PE will take place on a Wednesday afternoon and a Tuesday afternoon. On Tuesday 25th September, our PE slot will be replaced by swimming.
- Homework will be related to current learning in maths and English and will be reviewed as a whole class. We have found this has a positive effect on children's confidence with their homework and ensures that misconceptions are addressed immediately. Please ensure that your child asks for help with their homework whenever they require, this is fantastic preparation for secondary school as independence is key!
- Spellings and multiplication tables will be handed out on a Monday and tested on a Friday. Homework will go out on a Friday and be returned to school on a Wednesday.
Homework will be sent out weekly. The sheet is divided into 3 sections with the first section being for everybody to have a go at. The next two sections are progressively more challenging and are for children to have a go at if they wish! Don't forget to just have a go and ask for help if you need it.
