Mississippi

Mississippi - Year Six

This half term we will be continuing with our Victorians topic. After our trip to the Thackray Museum, we will start by looking at Victorian inventions. Then we will go on to find out about the jobs that the Victorians did, in particular children. We will finish by looking at how the Victorians celebrated Christmas and will continue to look at the work of William Morris. I will post some of our printing masterpieces on our class page so please do keep looking!

In English, we will finish Oliver Twist where we will write a description of one of the main characters. When we finish reading Oliver, we will start Street Child. We will write newspaper reports, stories and find out lots of information about famous Victorians such as Dr Barnardo.

In Maths we will start with long division. Then, as we become more confident, we will move onto fractions. Please support your child with their times tables as, without them knowing them well, they will find this half term tricky.

In Science we will be learning about Light and Shadows.

In PE, we will have a coach to teach us gymnastics.

Learning logs will be handed out on a Friday and will be collected in on a Wednesday. I will send home extra maths/grammar/spellings homework.

Please make sure that your child reads every night and please ask them about what they have read.
