Welcome to 6 Neptune!
Autumn Term 2019
In the first half of this term the children will be developing their knowledge of the local history of Hertford whilst studying the Victorians. They will be completing lots of exciting work covering History, Computing, Geography and Art objectives. They will be exploring the artwork of William Morris and developing their skills in printing.
In our English lessons the children will be exploring character feelings and motivations whilst making inferences through our reading. They will also be writing diary entries in role before some exciting story writing! Additionally, we will be reading Street Child, which will help to develop their historical understanding of the Victorian era. Finally, the children will be using their persuasive writing skills through the use of Talk for Writing
In Maths we will be following the Maths Essentials programme and will cover a range of topics starting with place value, moving through fractions, multiplication and division and calculating areas of parallelograms and triangles.
In Science, the children will begin to explore ideas behind Evolution and Inheritance as well as looking at how we keep our bodies healthy as they develop an understanding of the heart and recognise the impact of diet, exercise and lifestyle on the way our bodies function.
The children have made an excellent start to becoming independent learners and are looking forward to the responsibilities and privileges that this year brings.
Please feel free to contact me or make an appointment through the office if there is anything you wish to discuss.
All the best,
Mrs Harrison and the Year 6 team.
