Oak Class Learning
In Ash Class, we love to learn and have chosen lots of fantastic topics to focus on all through the year!
In the first half term we will be learning all about South America. We will be specifically focusing on Brazil and looking at the Amazon Rainforest too!
Here is your knowledge organiser for the term:
During the second half of the Autumn Term we will be learning about Ancient Greece and their Gods. The story is about Elliot - his mum is ill and his home is under threat, but a shooting star crashes to earth and changes his life forever. The star is Virgo - a young Zodiac goddess on a mission. But the pair accidentally release Thanatos, a wicked death daemon imprisoned beneath Stonehenge, and must then turn to the old Olympian gods for help. After centuries of cushy retirement on earth, are Zeus and his crew up to the task of saving the world - and solving Elliot's problems too?
During the first half of the Spring Term we will be learning about World War II. Our book is Letters From the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll - a stunningly evocative wartime drama, and sure to keep us breathlessly reading to its very last page.
World War II Knowledge Organiser
During the second half of the Spring Term we will continue our learning about World War II linked to the book Rose Blanche by Roberto Innocenti.
During the first half of the Summer Term we will be focusing our learning on maps. Our text is The Last Wild which is a fanciful tale set in a dystopian world where almost all animal life has been wiped out by a mysterious virus. The world is populated by a colourful cast of characters, both human and animal.
In year 6 children are expected to continue their learning at home every day. This includes a short 5 minute maths task, times tables practice, reading and spelling practice. Please click on the link below for the cover letter from the inside of the Home Learning books.
