A warm and wonderful welcome to our Year 6 class page! 


Things to remember

  • We aim to go outside every day for break times plus our PE lessons and other activities. Please make sure your child brings a waterproof coat every day.
  • Please send a fresh bottle of water (not juice or squash) in each day.
  • Children are encouraged to bring a healthy snack to school each day for break time (preferably fruit).
  • School is not currently selling any snacks at break time. Please consider sending your child in with a healthy snack (preferably fruit).
  • We aim to teach PE every Monday and Friday. Please send your child to school in full PE kit on these days. They will then continue to wear their kit for the remainder of the day. Please make sure your child has their outdoor sweatshirt on both days as we will sometimes teach both of these lessons outdoors.
  • All stationery will be supplied so children should not bring a pencil case to school.
  • Children should not bring a bag or backpack to school, only their lunchbox and water bottle. We do not have the space to store them.


Summer Term


Come and See (Religious Education)
Topic: Pentecost - Serving.

  • The courage to be a witness – Explore
  • Pentecost: The Holy Spirit enables people to witness to the Easter message – Reveal
  • Acquire the skills of assimilation, celebration and application of the above – Respond

English

We share this emotive book, The Island, by Armin Greder, which covers many moral and social issues.

Maths

Our focus this term is on geometry, problem solving and statistics.

Science

Evolution and Inheritance - We will describe how the earth and living things have changed over time, explain how fossils can be used to find out about the past. We will learn about reproduction and offspring (recognising that offspring normally vary and are not identical to their parents). We will also explore how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment. We will link adaption over time to evolution.

History

In the summer we explore the history of our mighty city. This will cover many different aspects from the origin of our accent to being the European city of culture and everything in between. We are very excited about this topic and are hoping that we will be able to get out and about and see some of the history for ourselves

Homework

Reading books will be sent home on a Thursday and should be returned on Monday morning. Children should also use the online reading platform – Oxford Reading Buddy – to extend their reading experiences.
Spellings will also go home on a Thursday to be learnt for the following Wednesday.
Times Tables Rock Stars is a fabulous online resource for learning and consolidating times tables – a fundamental of all maths. Children should access this at least three times a week – how far up the leader board can they go?

 

Our door is always open if there is ever anything that you need, do not hesitate to see us on the yard or to contact us.
