Nottingham - past and present
Our topic this term is based around the history of Nottingham, The children will be learning about how our city has changed since Anglo-Saxon times, when it was referred to as Snotengaham! Our main focus will be on the network of sandstone caves which run underneath the city and how they have been used for different purposes for over a thousand years.
As part of this topic we will be visiting the caves in early October. A letter about the trip will be given out soon.
Homework will be given out every week on a Friday and will be due in on the following Wednesday. There will be a piece of English and maths to complete.
Spellings will be given out every Monday and tested on the following Monday. These are from the Year 6 expected spellings, which are also listed in reading diaries.
The children will be set times tables challenges and working through bronze, silver and gold awards. It is very important that Year 6 learn all their tables up to 12.
We encourage the children to read every day as this means they make brilliant progress and also enables them to access all areas of the curriculum. When the children have their reading diaries signed three times a week they will receive a merit point, which goes into a weekly draw for a prize,
In Science we have been very busy studying Classification and making our own classification keys. The children had fun sorting sweets then moved on to sorting birds and butterflies.
