Welcome Year 6,
We are so pleased that we have been able to welcome you into Year 6 and that it has been a great start to the year.
This year, our classes are named after the fantastic authors Michael Morpurgo and Peter Bunzl.
6H - Morpurgo Class
6M - Bunzl Class
Some of the learning this term:
English: This term children will be reading fiction texts about World War 2 and using these to inspire their own writing. The children will continue to practise their joined up handwriting and punctuating sentences correctly.
Maths: Children will continue to follow the White Rose scheme and begin by focusing on place value. After this, children will be covering addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Science: Children will be learning about evolution and inheritance. Children will consider what role evolution has on the survival of different species.
Art: Children will learn about the artist Andy Goldworthy and they will be venturing outside to create their own art.
History: This term, children will be learning about World War 2.
PE: Outdoor Adventurous Activities every Friday afternoon (children will need to be wearing trainers) and Tennis everyday on the week commencing 28th September 2020 (children will need to be in full PE kit everyday).
Homework will be set every Wednesday and must be completed by the following Wednesday. Homework will consist of reading, spelling practise, maths revision and occasionally we may provide extra work that children have found difficult in class. Work will be set via SeeSaw. We recommend that children complete their work as soon as possible so if any difficulties arise we are able to help as well as helping children to get into good habits ready for secondary school. We will acknowledge submission of children's homework using the heart button and will respond to the learning in school, either as a whole class or on an individual basis.
If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Miss Harris and Mrs Mobbs
