Welcome to Mr Hill's class....

Autumn Term 2018

Literacy

In Literacy this term we will be using our topic work and key texts to inspire our writing. The genres we will be looking at are diary writing and biography writing.

In our diary writing, we will be learning how to use powerful and emotive language and new grammatical concepts to enhance our work.

Our biography work will use a more formal style of writing and we will be practising different ways of how we can achieve this. 

Mathematics

This term we are working on securing and deepening our understanding of place value and making connections and links between numbers. We will also be focussing on the four operations and number facts; unpicking problems, working out which skills we will need to solve them and deciding which the most suitable method is.

Topic

Awesome Egyptians!

We're transporting ourselves back in time - to over 5000 years ago - to find out all about 'Ancient Egypt'. We're looking forward to learning about the fascintating Pharaohs, the magic of the mummies, the power of the pyramids and the remarkable River Nile. Developing and deepening our historical, geographical, enquiry, art and design skills along the way.

Science

This term we will be learning about the circulatory system, the digestive system and the respiratory system and will be 'bringing science to life' when developing our understanding of the fascinating human body.

Homework

Each week we will send a piece of Literacy and maths homework, which will link with that week's learning. 6H will also be asked to read a section from their book club text over each weekend.

The children will be provided with a set of revision books (booster packs) for Literacy and maths. They can work through these at their own pace or they may be asked to complete a specific section.

Autumn Term 2017

Literacy

In Literacy this term we will be working on some emotive and powerful monologue pieces based on our WW2 topic and our class text, Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. Other genres we will study include biographies and non-chronological reports, which again will link with our topic work and our class text. Running alongside our writing genres will be our spellings, grammar and punctuation work. For book club we will be improving our inference skills through the text Cirque du Freak by Darren Shan.

Mathematics

In the first half term we will be working on securing our understanding of the four operations, place value, number facts, negative numbers, word problems and real-life, context-based maths. We will be unpicking problems, working out which skills we will need to solve them, and deciding which the most suitable method is.

Topic

Can you tell the Hull story?

During our topic we will be looking at some of the defining moments of our city's history with a primary focus on Hull during the Second World War. We will learn about the impact the war had on the city and find out about individual’s stories at that time. Our topic work will have a historical and geographical focus with many ‘Ask It’ opportunities.

During the final season of the City of Culture year, Y6 will be taking full advantage of all the amazing experiences and opportunities so we can ‘tell the world!’ We will celebrate the qualities that make Hull, Hull.
