Class van Gogh (Year 6)

Picture 1

Welcome to Van Gogh Class 2019-20


Our teacher is Mrs Simber and our TA is Mrs Everest,  Mrs Kimble also teaches the class every Wednesday. 


Our creative curriculum topic this term is 'Let there be Light' with our main focus being the Victorians (History).  Due to following a creative curriculum, wherever possible, all subjects will be linked to this topic, for example our science focus is 'Light' and  links very well to the topic. However RE will be taught discreetly and we will be investigating the key question 'What difference does it make to believe in harmlessness (Ahimsa), the generosity of God (Grace) and community (Ummah) ?


This term, we are basing our English learning around the book, 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty. We will also be focusing on Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar and continuing to practise use of different reading skills in preparation for the upcoming SATs.


For more information on our curriculum, please see the parent overview and the curriculum map attached below.


Maths and English homework will to be set on a weekly basis along with the challenge homework for the half term.


Year 5/6 spellings lists have been given out and children will also be given weekly spellings to learn (see termly spelling lists attached below)
