In Year 6, our focus in Religion for the first half term in Jesus, the Bread of Life. We have been learning about the Passover and how Jewish people celebrate and remember it. We are also looking at the Last Supper and its importance to us as Christians and Catholics. In the second half term we will study Jesus, the Son of God. We will be looking at, and learning about, Jesus' miracles and what they mean to us. We will also learn about the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus and reflect on its importance to us.
In Topic we have been learning all about Antarctica. During our Literacy lessons we have been studying Ernest Shackleton and his epic exhibitions to Antarctica. Next half term we will study North America, in particular New York City. Both of these topics are fascinating and very enjoyable - we wish we had more time to spend on each topic!
Our Science topic in the first half term is Animals and Humans and we have been looking at digestion, in particular recently. Next half term we will be studying Evolution.
We have read 'A Monster Calls' by Patrick Ness and a Biography of Shackleton so far this term, the children enjoyed both but LOVED 'A Monster Calls', even though it is very sad! Our next class novel will be something a little bit lighter!

We are encouraging children to develop their internet based research skills by making notes and putting their facts into their own words.
We also advise at least 10 minutes reading a night as well as practising their weekly spelling.
