Learning in Year 6:
As part of our learning we are looking at Phantom of the Opera, Shakespeare’s Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The children will be exploring Micro-organisms and Forces as our science focus. The children will engage in ‘Dragon’s Den’ style activities designed to refine presentation and group work skills as well as numbers and calculation.Their books will also include any map work and investigative ICT.
Instead of lengthy homework tasks (which can cause undue stress on Sunday nights!) we will ask the children to talk to you about their week and carry out small investigative tasks linked to their current topics. The home task book is aimed at maintaining consistent dialogue with you so that we can monitor your feelings about your child’s progress, as well as ours. You may like to tell us about your child’s interests and talents outside of school (e.g. dancing, acrobatics, art, writing etc.) Any information like this is invaluable. It basically serves as a home—school learning journal that will be looked at by staff every Monday morning—we invite you to write in it anytime!
