Summer 2 2019

Welcome back after a lovely week off hopefully spent doing lots of things you enjoy! You worked super hard last half term and we are so proud of how you handled SAT's week, you are a credit to the school! Your final half term at East Bierley Primary has arrived and we have lots of exciting learning planned for you. In English, we will be focusing on developing our writing by writing in different genres and for different purposes. Our reading curriculum will focus on developing our reading for knowledge as we research and investigate the lives of Tudors, we will also be starting our new class novel 'Treason' by Berlie Doherty, which will tie in nicely with our History topic 'What impact did the Tudors have on Britain?' During our D&T lessons we will complete our rag rug cushions which we started last half term. In Maths, we will have a focus on problem solving and enterprise projects giving the children opportunity to use the skills they have learnt over the course of the year and applying them to real life situations

Summer 1 2019

Welcome back Year 6, we hope you have had a lovely Easter break and that you managed to rest in preparation for a very busy half term!
This half term, we will be continuing our World War 2 topic and be finding out more about rationing, the Holocaust and the role of women in the war. We will continue with our book 'Boy in the Striped Pyjama's' which I know you have  enjoyed very much  so far!
For the first two weeks back, we will spend time revising the areas that we have taught so far in preparation for SAT's. We  know that this half term is important but we do not want you to worry about it, we are so pleased with how hard you have worked and how much progress you all have made that  in our eyes you have already done the best you possibly could!

Spring 2 2019

This half term, we will be finishing our ‘Peacock Garden’ work with Mrs Moxon and beginning a new topic focussing on World War 2 with Miss Tipple. In music, we will be studying Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. During our RE lessons, we will be focussing on forgiveness and compassion, this will also link to our PSHE and mental health work. This will be our final full half term before the SATs – so this will mean lots of revision will take place in school, we will also be sending additional homework each week. Please encourage your child to complete this and return to school. Thank you for your continued support.

Spring 1 2019

Welcome back Year 6, we hope you had a lovely Christmas and are ready to start 2019 with a bang! We have lots of exciting learning to kick start the year and hope you feel focused, determined and ready to work hard! We will begin our new topic 'Darwin's Delights' by exploring evolution through science and spend some time looking at his route on the HMS Beagle to see which countries he visited and what he found on his exploration. Our new class book 'The Peacock Garden' will help us to explore the British Empire. In RE, we will be focusing on respect.
If you have any ideas linked to our learning for this half term, please let Miss Tipple or Mrs Moxon know and we will see what we can fit in!
We look forward to seeing you!

Autumn 2 2018

A great first half term Year 6, well done! This half term we are focusing on The Great War to begin  with.  We will be writing diary entries from the perspective of a soldier and a biography of a war veteran. We will also be creating artwork using mixed medias. We will learn the  history of the war and  what is was like to be in a trench. 

Following this we will begin our topic animals including humans. We will look at the human body and how we look after it.  We will study the heart, how it is made up and the components that make up blood.  


In maths, we will practice a new method for long division, we will then look at order of operations and revisit our algebra topic. 

We are really looking forward to everything we have  planned  for you this half term, I hope you are ready for some hard work! 

Autumn 1 2018

Well the summer seems to have flown by and we are back to September already! I hope you have had an amazing break and made sure you had plenty of rest as we have eight weeks of hard work to get through and we cannot wait to get started!

We will begin our term by thinking about our aspirations for the future. We will think about what career options there are for us and which skills we will have to develop to help us to get there. We have an exciting afternoon planned for the 7th September which you will find out about over the next few days. 

I know you loved our class novels in Year 5; Mrs Moxon has chosen our first class text for this year - Wonder by R J Palacio. You will do some English work based around this book with Mrs Moxon on a Thursday and Friday. Your other English sessions will link to our topic – ‘We’ve got the Power!’ and ‘Dragonology’.

I bet you can’t wait to start Times Table Olympics again, I know how much you all love the challenge and Mrs Moxon is eager to see how well you all do so I hope you have been practising on TTRockstars over the holidays!

Now that we are Year 6, we need to set an example to the rest of the school and we also need to stay on top by keeping up with Spelling Shed, TTRockstars and MyMaths so let’s make sure we do our homework every week please!
