Welcome to Year 6   
Our Learning
History & Geography: Route 66
Over term 5 & into term 6, Owls are exploring America and the famous Route 66. Alongside practising map reading skills, understanding lines of longitude and latitude and plotting coordinates, the children will be exploring how many different sides of American life, geography and history are represented along this one route. In Forest school, they will also have a go at designing and making their own Totem Poles. 
Science Term 5: Electricity
In science, we will be building on our knowledge of electricity from Year 4. This term we will focus on understanding how insulators and conductors work, the impact of different elements in a circuit, and using the correct scientific symbols and language to showcase our work.  In term 6, our science is All Living Things which will explore the groupings of living things including micro-organisms. This will be linked closely with our PSHE lessons which cover Relationships and Changing me. 
In term 5, the children will be developing their knowledge and skills in building an effective narrative. In term 6, the children will dive into preparing for the end-of-year production- The Rocky Monster Show. In addition, we will work on finessing our non-fiction writing. 
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.
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.
