Spring Term 2020
This term we are continuing to work on our Conflict theme. We will look at the impact of World War 2 on Great Britain and investigate wars that have recently taken place or are currently being fought in the world today. Our DT project will involve finding out about Anderson Shelters so that we can design and make our own. We will integrate our Science learning in this project as we will install some circuits in our shelters so we have light/make something move/have sound.
We will be creating a Hybrid Text which will include an information and explanation text about tigers.
Our theme for this year is Conflict. We will be investigating the causes of conflicts and their impact on us. We will be finding out about conflicts that have taken place in Great Britain since the arrival of the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons. We will also be researching conflicts that have happened in different parts of the world including looking at World War 1 and 2 in more detail. We will be asking ourselves many big questions which will provide the foundations for our enquiry based learning around these conflicts. We will be exploring if these conflicts could have been avoided, what we have learnt from these wars and how can we prevent future conflicts from taking place. Our class trip to the Imperial War Museum of the North will build on our learning and allow us to see many exhibits that we will be discussing in class before hand.
We love reading and use books to inspire our writing. We will be starting the year reading Star of Fear, Star of Hope by Jo Hoestlandt alongside The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne.

Words you should know by the end of Year 6.
The National Curriculum expects children to be able to spell all of these words by the end of Year 6. Don't try to learn them all at once: check off the ones you can already do, and choose a few at a time to learn and practise at home.
