Lawford C of E Primary School

High quality learning and caring together in an encouraging Christian environment.

Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

Summer term 2021 

 

We are really looking forward to settling back into the summer term.

Our humanities topic this term is about the 'Witches of Manningtree'. We are going to be looking at the position of women and the trial by ordeal that they faced through the work of Matthew Hopkins the 'Witch finder General'.

We will be discovering how Manningtree has developed and changed over the centries both socially and through industrial changes. There will be lots of outdoor learning this term with the continuation of forest school and local study field work. 


Key concepts this term: Power, discrimination, truth and fairness

The love of reading...... can you guess what the focus of our reading will be this term?

MACBETH.......

We will be reading sections of Shakespeare's Macbeth this term........ 

 

 

 

Our new 1:1 devices in Year 6 

 

 

We are very fortunate in year 6 to have acess to a class set of Winbooks, which we use everyday to support our learning. Year 6 have begun to get very familiar with our use of Microsoft Teams and have begun to use our Class notebook to access teaching materials in the majority of our lessons.

Children are currently to come to school wearing their PE kits. As the weather is till a bit chilly turns please can you make sure that the children have plain dark coloured tracksuits bottoms and a change of oputdoor footwear until thw weather gets a bit less muddy!

 

Homework 

Homework is set on a Friday and is to be handed in by the following Wednesday. There is an expectation that children read at least 4 times across the week and that they work on their set times table on Rock Stars. Please could you sign the reading diaries to show that your child has read (either to an adult, or to themselves). 

The weekly homework will involve a maths task, a literacy or topic based activity and a spelling pattern or year 5/6 words task to practice.
