Year 6 Newsletter

Dear Parents

We hope everybody had a really enjoyable break and are ready to start a new term in Year 6.

Our theme for this term is World War 2. In history, we will be learning about the causes of this war, the effect on Britain and how we celebrated the end. In geography, we will be learning about the locations of the countries involved in the war and explore how these countries changed during this period. In addition, our artist will be Joseph Turner and we will look at creating our own ‘war skies’ based on his artwork.

Our literacy will be closely linked to World War 2 and we will be reading The Silver Sword; in numeracy, we will begin to learn about shape, space and measure.

After the February half-term, our theme will change to Survival of the Fittest. We will find out about Charles Darwin and the Origin of Species, explore how biological inheritance works, learn about how fossils are formed and how animals and plants adapt to survive in different ecosystems.

Thank you for all your support.
