Welcome to Year 6   
Our Learning
 
History & Geography: Ancient Greeks
During home learning and once back in school, the children will be exploring the different aspects of Greek culture and how they have influenced modern Britain. Our topic web is attached below for more detail on the areas that will be covered. 
 
Science Term 3: Light
In science, we will develop our understanding of light: how it travels, how our eyes work and different types of light. 
 
Science Term 4: Living things
In term 4, we will look at the animal kingdom and focus on human biology. The children will learn to identify and name the main parts of the human circulatory system, and describe the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood. During science and PSHE lessons, children will recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way their bodies function. Alongside this they will be able to describe the ways in which nutrients and water are transported within animals, including humans.
 
Key Information 
 
PE/ PE Kits
PE – Wednesday and Friday afternoons. This term PE will be focussing on Netball and Athletics. Please ensure your child comes to school dressed in a suitable PE kit on these days.  Long hair must be tied up and earrings to be taped or removed, along with removing any jewellery or watches. If earrings are removed, please ensure that your child has a small pot or safe place to keep them in.
 
Homework
 
Set on Wednesday
Due in: Monday

Homework will typically consist of:

Spellings – to practise and learn, these will be tested on a Monday. Please encourage your child to use strategies they find most helpful.
Punctuation and Grammar – A short activity linked to practising sentences and grammar.
Daily reading – please encourage your child to read daily and fill out their reading journals. It is your child’s responsibility to choose and change their reading books as required. The more they read the better writers they become.
Maths- A short maths task will be set that will need to be completed in their books. In addition, there will be MyMaths and/or Times Table Rock Stars activities that can be completed.

On Friday afternoon I am out of the classroom for Planning, Preparation and Administration time. The class will be covered by Mrs Cole for RE, Mrs Sinclair for PE and Mr Hards for Music.
