LORDSHIP LANE PRIMARY SCHOOL

A Love of Learning and the Perseverance to Succeed (LLPS)

6E

 

 

 

Welcome to 6E

 

Our topic this half term is...
A World of Discovery.

 

This half term we will be  reading 'Kensuke's Kingdom',  by Michael Morgurgo. 

We will use subject matter from the book to develop our debating skills, and use contrasting conjunctions to present a balanced argument. This will entail a thorough understanding of formal language. It is  possible to listen to parliamentary discussions on the radio, and this would provide a good example of formal debating language  for your child. 

                                               

 

                                                        

 

          

 Our focus for science is evolution and inheritance. 

Starting with evolution, we will look at fossils, and consider how they contribute to our understanding of our world. We will explore classification,  learning how plants and animals are classified according to specific characteristics. 

 

In Art , we will study the work of Hokusai, and produce similar work, using a range of materials.

In maths, we are starting the year with a strong focus on place value and the four operations. Please give your child lots of opportunity to to read seven digit numbers aloud. Just write them down, and say them together. 

 

Things to Remember

Every day - Reading books               

 Friday - P.E. kit

Homework .

 We aim to make the homework as discursive as possible (based on having a discussion) to help the children improve their spoken skills so please do help them and join in the conversation.

 

As ever, I am always keen to hear any news or concerns you may have; it's important to me that your child feels happy so please catch me at the beginning or end of the day if you need to speak to me.
