Topic: In this half term, Year 6 will be learning about the the Vikings. Initially, we will be focusing on who the Vikings were and what everyday life looked like for them. We will also be looking at how they invaded different countries and why. We will be examining why they brought vast armies to invade Britain and investigate how this impacted the lives of the Anglo Saxons living in Britain at the time.
Later on, we will examine the peoples perception of the Vikings and how this differs to their everyday life. Much of our learning will be very active, but also linked through other subjects such as English with our unit on 'Norse Myths'.
All Students will receive weekly home learning sheets, which we encourage this to be completed to support their learning.
Please read with your child as often as possible at home and record in their home school book which is checked daily. Half-Termly rewards will be provided for the students who continuously read and record it.
Children will receive a weekly list of spellings to learn at home. These will be sent home every Thursday, and then checked in school the following week.
Year 6’s P.E times are as follows:
Monday (outside) and Thursday (inside)
We will be continuing with the daily run or movement activities, so please ensure that your child has suitable footwear to participate every day. PE kits will be sent home on a Friday to be washed for return on Monday.
Please do speak to us if you have any queries or concerns.
