Welcome to the Team 6 page!

Our 2021 - 2022 Autumn term's theme is: 

Part 1: Keep Believing - WW2

Part 2: Keep Believing - Equality


During Autumn Term, Team 6 will use this theme to explore key events in history during the 20th century and the impact these events have had on the way we live today and the laws we follow.  We will be looking at the events of WW2 during Autumn 1 and in particular how communities came together and how the role of the woman changed during the war.  We will look at the role that the suffragettes had in promoting the rights for women to vote and what the laws are today in terms of voting and british democracy.

During this learning, we will be developing our geographical skills by understanding what trade is and how trade with other countries was affected during the war.

For the 2nd part of this theme, in Autumn 2, we will be learning about the development of the equality act in the UK and what this means for people living in the UK.  We will be looking at different events of the Civil Rights movement that inspired the fight for equality for all.

We will also be continuing our understanding of economic activity within the UK and how migration was used to further develop the UK.

During Autumn Term, our class reads will be ‘Crater Lake’ by Jennifer Killick and 'Letters from the Lighthouse' by Emma Carroll.

We will use the theme ‘Keep believing’ to develop all areas of the curriculum.  PE will be on a Wednesday afternoon.  Team 6 should come to school dressed in their PE kits every Wednesday, ready for PE.

Please see the home learning tab on our website for information about the purpose of home learning at Horn’s Mill and why reading is highly valued.  Team 6 will be expected to read for 5 times a week at home for at least 15 minutes.  Alongside reading themselves, it would be hugely beneficial if they listened to an adult read at home regularly.  Recommendations can be found on our home learning document attached to this page.   Team 6 will also be expected to use Times Tables Rock Stars regularly at home to support their times tables knowledge and help them to build confidence with instant recall of their times tables.
