Autumn 1 in Super Cedars!
Welcome back to Year 6! I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and I can't wait to make a start on some of our great learning this half term!
Our topic for Autumn 1 is Magic, Muggles and Mayhem based on Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
In Science, we will be learning about light and how it allows us to see. In art lessons we will be creating optical illusion patterns and in DT we will be sewing to create an invisibility cloak!
In literacy we will be learning to write Stories set in Imaginary Worlds using Harry Potter as a stimulus. We will be learning about the features of this text type and improving our sentence structures, grammar and use of vocabulary.
Please remember to read with your child at home and record this in their diary. It is very important that they have their diary in school every day. They will be checked for reading on Thursdays.
This half term we will be learning about numbers to 10 million and all of the four operations. We will be increasing our fluency in these areas but also our reasoning and problem solving skills.
Please remember to continue to support your child with superhero maths and help them to learn their times tables at home.
- PE is on a Tuesday
- Homework is set on a Friday to be in for the following Friday.
- Reading diaries are checked on a Thursday
- During the Autumn term, children will be taking part in DARE and will be required to bring their DARE work book to each session. This will also have homework to complete for this regularly.
We are GOLDEN and we SPARKLE!
