Our learning

Our topic for Spring Term is ‘900CE'.

We will be learning that at 900 CE, different ancient civilizations were rising and declining across the world. We will study the ancient Mayan civilization, the Kingdom of Benin and the rise of the Islamic empire. We will need to be historians and use artefacts and historical sources to make observations about the life cycle of civilizations and the legacies they leave us.

What happens when empires grow?

What causes change and decline?

What have we learnt from these past civilisations

Supporting your child with their learning at home

Reading

Reading should be completed a minimum of 3x a week, but ideally for 10 minutes each evening. This can be completed with an adult, or children can choose to read independently. If reading independently, children can record their reading session in their book but should get an adult to initial it. If reading to an adult, the adults need to record the reading session in the reading record, alongside a sentence or two about how the read and anything they found tricky. Reading records must be in school every day.

Homework books

Homework books are sent home on a Friday and must be returned to school on a Wednesday. Weekly homework includes:

Maths

A short maths challenge linking to the week’s learning. There will be 3 different challenges that your child can choose to complete depending on how confident they felt with that concept in class. Children should also log into TTRS (https://ttrockstars.com) and practise their multiplication recall.

Spellings

Children will have 10 spellings sent home linking to a spelling pattern being taught in class. These will be tested in the spelling session on a Wednesday morning.

IPC

At the bottom of the homework will be some questions linking to the topics being taught in class. Please ask your children these questions and get them talking about all the incredible learning that is taking place in classrooms! This is a great chance for children to share all of their amazing knowledge.

PE

PE days are as follows for Spring 2:

6L- Tuesday and Wednesday

6M- Tuesday and Wednesday

6FM- Tuesday

6A- Tuesday

As we move into Winter, please ensure that children wear their winter PE kits (jogging bottoms, Red Hill PE top, school jumper and trainers). Please also make sure children bring a warm, waterproof coat with a hood.
