Below are the topics covered in Year 6:

Shake Things Up!
If you would like to know more about any of the topics being covered then please request this from the class teacher.
Below are some home learning project ideas related to this half term’s topic, ‘War and Peace.’ This home learning really encourages the children to become investigative learners and to develop their enquiry skills, independence and creativity.
This half term’s project needs to be completed and returned to school by Monday, 11th February so that the children can share their home learning with the rest of the class, during the last week of this half term. If your child needs any paper, or other resources that school can provide, please encourage them to ask their class teacher.
- Research rationing and create a weekly meal for a family of four during World War 2.
- Make a presentation about a famous battle from World War 2.
- Create a scrapbook of photos showing evacuation.
- Research propaganda posters, devising one of your own.
- Write a news report of the day evacuation started.
As well as these project ideas, children are encouraged to read at home at least three times a week and practise their times tables on Times Tables Rockstars. We will also be sending home weekly reading, maths, grammar and spelling homework.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to see a member of the team.
Thank you for your continued support.
