Year 6 – St. David – Mrs Ruddy
Spring Term Curriculum
This term, our new topic will be focusing on London. This entails investigating the famous landmarks throughout London, the transport system and the royal family. Also, the children will be improving their sketching skills to create their own portrait of one of the famous landmarks they have studied.
In Science the children will be studying the different stages throughout human life.
In Religious Education, Year 6 are learning about ‘The Kingdom of God’ 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 being healthy.
In our ICT lessons, children are learning how to become environmentalists and how technology can support this.
Our new music lessons will involve appraising and then performing ‘You’ve Got A Friend’ by Carole King.
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.
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.
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.
