Dear Parents and Carers,

 

We are delighted to welcome you back to the spring term which begins on Tuesday 4th of January 2022. I do hope that you have all had a restful and safe Christmas break. We have lots of fun things planned this term, which I know that the children will love. We endeavour each day to make the learning fun and provide a creative curriculum which is both broad and balanced. 

 

Our topic is called 'The Windrush' in which we will be learning all about the HMT Empire Windrush arriving at Tilbury in Essex on 21 June 1948 were 492 British subjects from the Caribbean were among the 1027 passengers who alighted to start new lives in Britain. Please see our Medium Term Plan and our Fact Sheet for more information.


Please also note there will be 50p fines for lost Reading Records and  £2 fines for any books lost or damaged.

 

 

If you got any questions, please contact the office or myself directly and I am happy to support.

 

Best wishes,

 

Miss Shire

Autumn 2 (2021-2022)

 

Dear parents,

 

Welcome back after the October holidays. We all hope that you are all well and have had a restful break with your children. We will be hitting the ground running as there is so much to squeeze in this year. Obviously we are looking forward to some of the activities unique to Year 6 which will take place in the Summer but we also know we have got a lot of learning to do before we get there. I am sure we will all work together to make your last year at Vittoria a special one!

 

 

Our learning this half term:

 

English - This half term, we will be reading and learning about internal monologues, balanced arguments and persuasive text. We will look at the different features and language features that are used in them and use this for our basis in our own writing.

 

Our class novel, which will be the focus of our reading lessons, will be Skellig by David Almond as well as Holes by Louis Sachar​

 

Maths - During Autumn 2, we will be continuing our learning in maths by following the White Rose Maths scheme. We will learning about multiplication and division before moving on to fractions later in the term.  

 

Science-  Over the next few weeks, the children will be learning how to identify and name the main parts of the human circulatory system, and describe the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood. In addition, they also will be learning to recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way their bodies function

 

Topic- This half term our topic are 'Battle of Britain in WW2' and '1066 - Vikings and the arrival of the Normans. They will learn when and why World War II began and find out about the key individuals and countries involved. In addition to this, they will discover all about evacuation as well as the important facts about the Holocaust. Moreover, we will also look at how the Vikings lived, what happened during the Viking invasions and know what Viking warriors were like.

Reading Records needs to be signed daily as part of the Home-School Reading Agreement. Reading records need to be brought back into school every morning to be checked. Please encourage your child to read for at least 20 minutes each day.

Homework in Year 6  is given out on a Friday and returned on a Wednesday (unless stated otherwise in special circumstances). Please make sure you child brings their homework in on time, as it is beneficial to our learning at the time. In addition, please ensure your child learns their spelling list for the week as there is a weekly spelling test.
