Year 6 – St. David – Mrs Ruddy

Spring Term Curriculum

This term we are focusing on amazing authors and Year 6 are studying William Shakespeare. This entails investigating why his plays are still widely used today and producing a biography about his life. Also, children will be focussing on map skills linked to Stratford Upon-Avon, making masks to use whilst performing one of his plays and finding out more about his passion for writing.

In Science the children will be studying how humans stay alive and carrying out some experiments to investigate how our vital organs work.

In Religious Education, Year 6 are learning about Christianity and there will be plenty of opportunities for discussion and debate during these sessions.

In PSHE the children will be participating in some mindfulness sessions and thinking about their dreams and goals.

In our ICT lessons, children are learning how to become game designers.

Our new music lessons will involve a new year carol.

I am very much looking forward to teaching all of these amazing topics and helping the children to expand their knowledge and understanding of the world they are in.

Reading

All children are expected to read regularly every week to an adult; each time they read, they will receive raffle tickets.  When they have read 5 times, they will receive raffle tickets and a merit, which will count towards their house.  Other prizes for reading will be given in class throughout the year.

Home/School Planner:

Could you please ensure that your child brings their home/school planner in to school every day. Please feel free to write any comments in it.

Every Friday your child will bring their planner home which will have been signed by their teacher. This should be countersigned by the parent/carer and returned to school again on Monday morning. Children will receive a merit for planners that have been signed when returned on Monday.
