Spring 2

Welcome To
Class 6
 
Our class teacher is Mrs Spry.
Other adults in class are:
Mrs Archer and Mrs Stephenson.

Writing

During the second part of the Spring term, we will be immersed in performing, evaluating and composing ballad poetry.   Following on from this we will create then entertain with our mystery stories, inspired by our class text this term - 1001 Arabian Nights.

Religious Education
 
Our opening unit 'Eucharist' asks the pupils to consider - 'Why are we happiest when we are united?' We will explore the importance of communion and how the sacrament unites God's people with the body of Christ.  Following on from this we will focus on the liturgical season of 'Lent.'  We will explore how loss and death bring about change for people and explore the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus which leads to new life. 
Maths
 
During the Spring term we will revisit fraction relationships and qualities so as to order, find equivalence and perform four operations.  We will solve problems involving area of triangles and parallelograms and volume of cubes and cuboids. We will investigate how ratio relates to unequal dividing and  throughout the term, give the children a weekly opportunity to engage in mixed problem solving and reasoning.

Homework
 
Reading - Hearing your child read can be difficult at this age, but as often as possible, ask your child questions about their reading book, challenge them to predict what will happen next and ask them to summarise what they have read so far.
Spellings - these will be issued on a Tuesday then tested on the following Monday. Handwriting practice sheets will contain the spelling list and remain in school. The children must access this list through Google Classroom. Maths - activities will be allocated weekly, using 'IXL.'
Building effective routines now to ensure that homework is completed will ease the transition to Secondary school when the expectation is much greater.
