The Team is Miss Dineen, Mr Goegan, Mr Lenehan, Mrs Worrall and Miss Iqbal.
Our global theme this half term is Power and Governance.
This half term: Autumn 1
In the Autumn term, we will be looking at the Victorians as part of our History topic, we will base our learning around the global theme Power and Governance. This will also link with our geography work looking at our local area and the impact of the British Empire around the world. As part of our immersion into this topic, we will use quality texts, clips and P4C lessons to see what life was like for Victorian people. We will then explore deeper into the theme of power and link it to the present day.
This half term in maths, we will be revisiting place value as well as consolidating arithmetic methods covered in Y5. All children need to know their times tables and should be practising them at home. Fortnightly arithmetic tests will be completed on a Friday to improve children’s knowledge and stamina in correct methods.
We will be writing a narrative this half term based on the book Wild Boy. This book is an exciting text that follows the life of a boy who is a carnival attraction set in the Victorian era.
Our Book study text will be Orphans of the Tide, which will link to our theme on Power and Governance
