Our main topic this half term: World War II

This half term, we will be learning about World War II. We will learn about how it began, how it affected the country on the home front and in particular Liverpool and what happened as a result of it ending. It will also link to our English topic this term as we will base our writing on books and poems from the war.

In science, our topic will be ‘Light’. Throughout this topic we will learn about the properties of light and how it travels, sources of light and how light is seen by the human eye to represent the seen world.

Our class book for this half-term: Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian.

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.

Additional information

PE: This half term is netball. These will take place on Wednesday afternoons and could be either inside or outside so please provide appropriate clothing. The children will need their basic PE kit of a white t-shirt, shorts or jogging pants, and trainers or pumps.
