Autumn 1 - 2021
Year 6 have made an amazing start to this academic year! We have started reading our class novel Hansel and Gretel. In Literacy, we are really looking forward to seeing the children show off their writing skills as we continue the story of Hansel and Gretel in their own way.
In Maths, we are working on recapping and developing our place value knowledge. We will be moving onto calculations where we will cover the long methods of calculation plus fractions, decimals and percentages.
Our new topic ‘Maafa’ has already sparked curiosity and interest and we look forward to finding out more about Africa, the slave trade and the abolition of slavery. Running alongside our topic, will be an art topic about significant artists. As part of Science, we will be learning all about the circulatory system.
