Welcome to Year 6.
We are Oak class!
The adult in Oak class are Miss Ahmed and Mrs Ali (on Thursday morning).
What will be learning about in Autumn 2?
This half term, our school value is Thankfulness. We will be thinking about how we can show this value in class and whole school collective worship and our daily interactions.
In English, we are studying Who Let the Gods Out. We will be finding out how Elliot's life changes as a result of a star sign from the Zodiac Council crash-landing on Earth. Our end point will be a balanced argument about whether or not Elliot and Virgo should free Prisoner-42.
In Maths, we are going to be learning about the four operations, focusing on long multiplication, short division and long division.
We are starting the half term with our Art days in which we will be studying portraits and caricatures: we will be learning how to complete realistic 3-d portraits and how to create self-caricatures.
In History, we will be learning about the Ancient Egyptians and analysing primary and secondary sources to understand how historians today know about ancient times.
In PSHE, we will be thinking about choice we can make to stay safe and healthy as we grow older, we will be focusing on choices we can make to stay safe online and the impact social media can have on our wellbeing. We will also be looking at our British Values and how we can put these into practice.
In RE, we will be thinking about the values and teaching of Jesus and ways we can put these into practice. We will centre our learning around parables, such as The Centurion's Servant.
We will also be planning and practicing our class assembly.
