Take a look at our timetable and the Knowledge Organiser for Spring 2.
Year 6 Spring 2 Newsletter
This term’s topic is Crime and Punishment. Students will expand their understanding of chronological events beyond the year 1066 by delving into the social history aspect. The focus will be on exploring the evolution of the Roman justice system, crime, and punishment throughout the Anglo-Saxon, Tudor, and Victorian eras, leading up to the contemporary crime and punishment system.
In English lessons, we will use our knowledge about the justice system and crime to explore our text Holes. The main character (Stanley Yelnats) has been unjustly sent to a boys’ detention centre, Camp Green Lake, where the boys build character by spending all day, every day digging holes exactly five feet wide and five feet deep.
In maths, we will complete our decimals and Area units and while revisiting key areas. We will continue working particularly hard on arithmetic as this will allow children to build fluency with their maths, working on TTRS regularly will also support maths fluency throughout year 6 and in the future.
To aid your learning at home, PLEASE learn your spellings and times tables every week and keep up with your Maths and Reading homework on Century, your handwriting homework and try to read regularly too!
Myself and Mrs Dunn want to ensure that not only will they work hard this year but they will also have a lot of fun along the way. I will ask parents to support children with their learning, as you always do, but especially so this year.
There will be lots of opportunities to meet with me to discuss any queries you may have. Please do ask for support from me if you should feel you need it, so that you can help your child at home. I will do all I can to support you.
PE will be on Wednesday this half-term. PLEASE make sure you have FULL PE KIT in school (outdoor or indoor kit depending on the weather).
