Letters from the Lighthouse is a historical mystery set in WWII times. When Olive's sister goes missing during an air raid, Olive is determined to find out what happened.
What are we learning this half-term?
In english and maths we will be working hard to catch-up on lots of key skills that will help us succeed in Year 6. We know lots of you worked hard during lockdown if you couldn't come to school, but we think this little boost will be really helpful.
Our English will link to our topic work and we have an amazing book to base our work on. We will also be looking at some War Poetry and the amazing life of Winston Churchill.
In maths we will be focusing on Place Value, looking at decimals, rounding and the properties of numbers.
In science, we will begin by looking at light, how light travels and reflection and refraction. We will also be finding about how our eyes work.
In topic, we will be discovering all about World War 2. We will be looking at the geography of the war as well as finding out about life on the Home Front. We will find out about what everyday life was like and how people worked together in difficult times.
In RE, we will be further building on our knowledge of Islam. We will be finding out more about what it means to belong to an Islamic faith community and learning more about the Five Pillars of Islam.
In PE we will be developing our athletic skills. We will be learning different techniques to improve our stamina and performance. PE will be on Thursdays.

Other Useful Information
For the first couple of weeks, we will not be sending reading books and diaries home, but please encourage your child to read their own books at home also.
PE will happen on Thursdays for Year 6, and you will have read that children should come to school already in their PE uniform - we will not be changing at school.
