Welcome to Year 6

 
Our Learning
 
Extreme Earth: The World's Most Dangerous Location.
We will be learning about the different natural disasters and exploring the world’s most dangerous locations. We will look at how natural disasters occur and the impact on the environment and communities.
 
Alongside this,  in science, we will be looking at evolution and inheritance and how animals have adapted to living in extreme locations.
 
In English, we will be starting to create work based around Shackleton's Journey by William Grill. We will be taking on roles within Shackleton's crew and following their journey from application to rescue.
 
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 TBC

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.
