Team 6 2020 - 2021
Welcome to the Team 6 page!
Our 2020 - 2021 Spring term's theme is:
During Spring Term, Team 6 will be completing our learning around World War 2 that we started before Christmas. We will find out about the events that happened during World War 2 and the impact it has had on our life today. We will find out about the strength, resilience and community spirit that was shown by everyday citizens during this difficult period of our history.
During this learning, we will be using the text ‘Star of Fear, Star of Hope’ to help us identify the impact that this war had on other countries besides the UK. We will also use this text to develop our writing skills, where we will be writing our own stories with conflict.
During Spring Term, our class reads will be ‘Room 13’ by Robert Swindells and ‘Gulliver's Travels' retold by Martin Jenkins.
We will use the theme ‘keep believing’ to develop all areas of the curriculum. PE will be on a Monday afternoon with Coach Craig. Team 6 should come to school dressed in their PE kits every Monday, ready for PE.
After half term, Team 6 will move on to another theme: Endangered.
We will use this theme to learn about changes to our planet and conservation efforts to protect it. We will be focusing on wildlife in particular and using the text 'Can we save the tiger' to support our learning. This text will also be used in our writing lessons, where we will be developing our skills, leading to an explanation text.

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.
