So we start our year with the hope that better times are now ahead and the turmoil of the past few months behind us. We are committed to ensuring our children stay safe at school but enjoy their learning and socialising together again. As we start the journey into Year 6, excitement is brewing on the Devonshire coast....
Our topic this term is: World War 2 and The Battle of Britain. We will be learning all about the effects of the war and how this impacts our lives today.
Using our topic as a stimulus, the children will learn how to write a recount from various perspectives and writing a missing chapter. Our class read to support the children with their writing is Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll.
We will be starting the year by revisiting our understanding of place value - looking at numbers to ten million! We will then learn to order and compare these numbers. Later in the term we will look at reasoning and problem solving using all four operations.
To start our year, we shall begin by learning all about light. Our science lessons will explore refraction of light and how shadows work.
So what do Christians believe about the beginning? Is it possible to be a Christian and a scientist? These are examples of the debates we shall encourage whilst we explore the Creation Story.
