Welcome to Year 6

With

Miss Chard and Mrs Davies

Please remember to make sure you are signed up to Class Dojo to see what we have been learning about in class.

English

This half term, Year 6 will be studying the text Star of Fear, Star of Hope by Jo Hoestlant. It is a story set during World War Two and will link in with our World Knowledge topic. We will be using this text to master our reading, writing and speaking and listening skills though various narrative immersion activites. At the end of the unit, we will write a story which will include a flashback from another character's point of view.

 

We will also be continuing to develop our grammar, punctuation and spelling skills. To practise your spelling, punctuation and grammar have a look at some of the websites below:
