Autumn Term 2017

 Autumn Literacy

In Literacy this term we will be working on some emotive and powerful monologue pieces based on our WWII topic and our class text. 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 will be our spellings, grammar and punctuation work.

Autumn Maths

In the first half term we are securing our understanding of the four operations, place value, number facts, negative numbers, word problems. We will be un-picking problems; working out what skills we will need to solve them and deciding which method is best to use.

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 individuals' stories throughout that time. Our topic work will have a historical and geographical focus with many 'Ask It' opportunities.

Our Class Text

Our class text this term is the brilliant ‘Kensuke's Kingdom' by Micheal Morpurgo. We're excited to dive into this book - our only problem is we're not sure we'll be able to put it down! Here's a taster...

"I heard the wind above me in the sails. I remember thinking, this is silly, you haven't got your safety harness on, you haven't got your life jacket on. You shouldn't be doing this.....I was in the cold of the sea before I could even open my mouth to scream"

Kensuke

City of Culture

During the final season of the City of Culture year, Year 6 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!

Science

This term we will be learning  about light and electricity and incorporating this into our DT and topic work.  

Homework

Each week we will send a piece of Literacy and Numeracy which will link with that week's learning.
