Grammar and Spellings

Each child will receive an individual spelling and grammar activity, linked to the spelling and grammar objective from the current week's learning.


The children will be expected to keep a writing blog this year and each week they are expected to create something for this. This is not expected to be very long and ardious but something simple like: an information fact file, a short biography, diary entry etc. etc. 



What's happening this term...

This Autumn term's topic in Year 6 will be 'London to Dubai'. This topic is part of the AROOJ family of schools and will compare the two great cities of London and Dubai. The children will research the two major cities – looking at the difference in the physical and human geography as well as how the two cities are governed. Finally, the children will look at the food and art from each of the cultures and compare these before creating a fusion of the two.


Important information...
