Welcome to Year 6!
This term, we are looking into World War Two and diving into the archives to find out what life was really like between 1939 and 1945. We will be completing research, carry out rationing activities and even see what it was like to be in an air raid. Later in the term, we will see how difficult it was to cook during the war years and the influence propaganda had on the Home Front.
While at Hooke Court, we will be investigating what life was like for children at this deadly time before identify how we can replicate that famous ‘War Spirit’ we were known for.
To help support your child at home, please hear them read as much as possible and encourage them to practise their times tables. ‘Times Tables Rockstars’ has recently been launched in all Year 6 Maths groups and the children are already completing this at home…hopefully with the music turned down!
This is an exciting and busy year for you child so please come and talk to us if you have any concerns or worries. Thank you.
Below are some useful websites to help your child with their topic work and prep for their SATs.
