Autumn Term

I am so pleased to be welcoming our wonderful children safely back to school for their final year at St Mary’s.  

 

Myself and Ms Anderton will ensure that we create a calm and welcoming environment for all of the children in our class. The wellbeing of our pupils is the most important element as we navigate through these tricky times and settle everyone back in to school life. This being said we also want to make sure that our children are receiving a broad and balanced curriculum, which will support them to achieve and grow to the best of their ability.

 

This term, in English, our writing will be based upon Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. We will cover a range of text types and focus on the development of our grammar, punctuation and spelling skills. We will also link Oliver Twist to our history topic on the Victorians and also our Art/DT topic of William Morris textiles.

 

In Maths children will progress to cover the full year 6 curriculum. We will begin with Place Value, Four Operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division), Fractions and Position/Direction. 

 

In line with our wellbeing focus, there will be two PSHE sessions a week instead of the usual one. Primarily we will look at feelings and returning to school before moving on to the following areas: What affects mental health and ways to take care of it; managing change, loss and bereavement; managing time online. In the second half of Autumn term we look at Keeping personal information safe; regulations and choices; drug use and the law; drug use and the media.

 

Our Catholic Religious Education programme will focus on Loving, Vocation and Commitment in our first half term.

 

For our first Science topic we will cover living things and their habitats including classification.  In Music we will look at Music through the years focusing on a range of genres and artists before progressing to Musical Theatre. In PE we will focus on Netball, Fitness, Health and Wellbeing. Our computing program will begin with Coding and Online Safety. Finally, our French topics will be 'French Speaking World' and 'Meet my French Family'.
