In English this term all of our writing will be linked to our Enquiry question, 'What makes an act courageous?' which all revolves around World War One.
We will be researching and then writing a non-chronological report about trenches, looking at some letters from the trench and writing one of our own, looking at a range of wartime poetry and then writing an action scene from the point of view of a soldier going 'over the top'.
How can I support my child in English?
In Year 6 it is necessary for the children to be able to join their handwriting, so children must ensure they are confident in joining neatly and fluently, so any practice they can get in this will be fantastic.
The children are also assessed on their spellings, so check out the homework section of our class page for ways you can support your child in their spelling.
