Here you will find details regarding life in Year 6. There will be information regarding the curriculum and homework requirements, plus photographs of what we have been doing throughout each term.
Keep checking our page to see regular updates.
Our topic for term 2 is 'How old is Ancient Egypt?'. We will be travelling back in time to the Ancient Egyptian period and exploring what this amazing time in history was like, including finding out about the River Nile, how the pyramids were built and all about its rulers and way of life. In our English lessons will be exploring the discovery of the famous 'boy king' Tutankhamun; where the archaeologist Howard Carter persevered with his dream of finding the tomb. We will also be looking at adventure stories and planning and writing our own. What an exciting topic!
The Term 2 class newsletter can be found at the bottom of the page under the 'Newsletter' section to find out more about what we will be doing in other subject areas.
Homework will consist of a multiple choice grid with many different types of activities to choose from which are all based around our topic. The children will be responsible for completing a task each week, recording it in their home learning book and then bringing them in just before the end of term. We will have time for small presentations if the children would like.
Remember to keep up with the reading at home in order to get through as many books as possible on the Accelerated Reader scheme and accrue the number of points needed for the term.
You also need to make sure you keep up with learning times tables by heart and practicing mental maths skills too. You will have your Prodigy and Times Table Rockstars to help you do this.
Spellings will be sent home on a weekly basis in year 6. (New spellings set each Friday and tested the following Friday).
Our PE days will be on a Tuesday and Thursday so please ensure that full PE kits are in school. Thursday PE will be outside so children will need to ensure they have tracksuit bottoms and trainers for outdoors, as well as shorts and plimsolls for indoor PE.
For health and safety reasons jewellery should not be worn. Children who wear earrings need to take them out for PE and should bring a small purse or container into school to keep them in. Remember, if they cannot be taken out by the child, then they need to be removed before school on PE days.
We are looking forward to a very exciting and busy term full of fun and exciting learning.
Thank you for your support.
14.10.19 - First Aid
Today, we had some very special visitors in to teach us all about first aid. We all joined in sensibly in our groups and asked some really great questions.
3.10.19 - Balanced Argument
In English, we have been researching and finding out about the Great Barrier Reef and the coral bleaching it has suffered over the past decade. As part of our balanced argument writing, we had a class debate about whether the public should be banned from visiting the reef in order to protect it.
12.09.19 - Aboriginal drama
In English, we retold an Aboriginal story using drama. We planned it as a group and then decided how we wanted to show it. Each group performed a different story.
