Our main topic this half term: The Second World War.

This will be a history-based topic and we will be learning about how the war started, the main countries involved and their leaders, and the war’s impact on the city of Liverpool. We will be looking in detail at aspects of the war such as The Blitz, evacuation and rationing.

Please find the knowledge organiser for this topic below:

In science, our topic will be: Light and Seeing Things. Building on prior learning in lower KS2, Year 6 pupils will continue to look at the topic of light. We will be learning about how light travels, how it enables us to see, and deepen and consolidate our understanding of sources of light.

Our Class Book: Once by Morris Gleitzman


Important information.

Please sign your child’s reading record each evening. Regular reading helps children to develop their fluency and comprehension skills, and  in turn helps them to access the rest of the curriculum. Children may change reading books at school when they have finished them.

Children receive spellings on Fridays. The word lists are taken from the Read Write Inc. Spelling units which the children have completed that week, so you will notice common spelling patterns or rules. Some weeks they may be taken from the Year 5/6 statutory spelling list. A copy of this can be found below. These spellings should be practised daily.

PE: This half term, the children will go swimming as part of their PE. Swimming sessions will take place on a Tuesday afternoon and so children will need kits for this day. They will need to bring a swimming costume (no long shorts), a towel, goggles and a swimming cap.
