A reminder about online safety:

If you are online, don’t forget to be safe and savvy! 

Never give personal information to anyone! Think about the safety of what you are sharing or posting if you are online or on your phone.

Do not share your school log-ins or change your log-in details. We won’t ask you to do that.

Make sure you are accessing online material that is relevant for your age and tell an adult at home if you come across something that is not suitable for you, or if someone is trying to contact/talk to you that is not someone you know.

You can contact your teacher through Seesaw if you feel vulnerable or worried, or contact Childline 0800 1111.

Useful reminders about Online Safety are at Thinkuknow.co.uk 

Please find below some information which you will hopefully find useful during the first half of the autumn term: please look at the curriculum section of our website to view more information about our curriculum.

Year 6 - Oak Class Curriculum

Curriculum News

English

We will be reading a book by Louis Sachar called 'Holes' which is about a boy called Stanley Yelnats' whose family has a history of bad luck going back generations, so he is not too surprised when a miscarriage of justice sends him to Camp Green Lake Juvenile Detention Centre. We will also be rehearsing a production which we will be sharing with the parents in the last week of term called ‘Pirates of the Curry Bean’.

 

Spellings

The children have completed the spellings for this year. Children need to practice their lines for the play.

 

In our SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) lessons, we will:

Link SPAG with our Power of Reading Book- Holes.

To revise parenthesis
To revise colons and semi-colons
To revise synonyms
To revise subordinate clauses
To revise expanded noun phrases.
 

Maths

We have covered all the topics in the 'Year 6 National Curriculum' so we will do lots of flashback and revision of different topics from the Year 6 objectives. 

 

Science

We will be learning about ‘Living Things and their Habitats.’

We will be learning about:

Classifying Animals
Classification Keys
Living Things and Their Habitats
Micro-Organism Investigation
Linnaeus Classification
 

RE

This half term topic is 'People of Faith'.

Key Questions:

What is faith?

What does it mean for a person to have faith?

What does it mean to be a person of faith?

What motivates people of faith?

How does having faith affect people’s lives?

 

PSHE

We will be focusing on the topic of 'Being My Best'.

Five ways to wellbeing.

Identify aspirational goals.

Identify risk factors.

I look great.

Media manipulation.

 

Topic 

We will be learning about 'What did the Greeks do for us?’

Below is an overview of the topic:

· Who were the Ancient Greeks?

· Ancient Greek Democracy.

· Ancient Greek Olympics.

· The Battle of Marathon.

· Greek Gods and Goddesses.

· The Trojan War.

P.E.

PE will be on a Monday morning and I am delighted that our team of professional coaches will be leading Oak Class's PE lesson every Thursday morning. For safety reasons, long hair should be tied back for PE and earrings either removed or taped over for safety (tape is supplied by school). It would be a good idea to check the weather forecast so they can dress appropriately (no football kits allowed). Children will have to sit the session out if kit has been forgotten.

 

Homework

Children need to learn and practise their lines for the play.
