Spring: How does the past shape our future?

The below enquiry overview shows the week by week learning for your child's class in English, enquiry and maths. You can use the overview to see what your child is learning in school each week.

Our weekly Enquiry questions are:

1. Who's side are you on?

2. Is choice yours to choose?

3. Was life in the trenches always harsh?

4. Was it only a people's war?

5. What benefits can war bring?

6. Can rivals be comrades?

English

A high-quality text drives each of our enquiries and the texts are used to give knowledge and purpose to the enquiry. High quality texts can only be accessed through knowledge of vocabulary in different tiers. Explicit teaching of new vocabulary and using the classroom environment to showcase key vocabulary helps us to infuse rich and sophisticated vocabulary from EYFS to Year 6. The texts are used as a stimulus for both English and cross curricular writing, ensuring high expectations of our children. Reading is interweaved into all aspects of the enquiry to encourage reading and language development and promote reading for pleasure.

Autumn 2 Key English Text

This is one of the WW1 poems that we will be studying in Year 6 this half term. It was written by a serving soldier Wilfred Owen. He used to include poems and drawings in letters back home to his Mother. 

He began to write poems that told the truth about the horrors he saw rather than the adventure that war was painted to be by the Governmnet's propoganda posters. 

He sadly was killed in action on 4th November 1918 while attempting to lead his men across the Sambre canal at Ors. The news of his death reached his parents on 11 November, Armistice Day - the day when the war was declared over.

Maths

In maths we follow the Power Maths programme to support children’s learning and to build a deep understanding of maths concepts. Power Maths is a curriculum mastery programme designed to spark curiosity and excitement and nurture confidence in maths. It is built around a child‑centred lesson design that models and embeds a growth mindset approach to maths.

This term we are covering the following:

  • Finding percentages of amounts.
  • Comparing percentages, fractions and decimals.
  • Measures - Finding metric measurements.
  • Finding Imperial measures.
  • Comparing measurements.
  • Finding the area of rectangles, triangles and compound shapes.
