Our teacher is Mr Wills and we’re very lucky this year to have Miss.Parker as our brilliant teaching assistant.
We are both so excited to be teaching Y6!
This Spring term, all of our work will centre around the question:
Is Trade Always Fair?
We will focus our work around the key text:
‘Kick’ by Mitch Johnson.
During this topic, we will be learning about what trade is and the effects it can have on different communities and it's importance through time and today. This is an important topic, to grow empathy and connect with our global community.
Our writing will be heavily influenced by our engaging topic and our class book. We will be putting into practice all our new SPAG learning to create some fascinating pieces linked to 'Kick' as well as other exciting writing influences! Our writing will be purposeful and we will be publishing our work to share with a range of audiences.
Reading this term, will be centred around one key text a week in order to broaden our exposure to different texts.
We will be utilising skills of retrieval, inference and prediction, with a huge focus on vocabulary.
This term, we will be beginning with developing and deepening our knowledge fractions then, moving onto: geometry, decimals, percentages, algebra and measurements. All the time, ensuring we are honing out arithmetic skills with a weekly test and skills lesson!
