Welcome to Year 6   
Our Learning
 
 
History & Geography
 
Our main topic for the next term is The Ancient Greeks, where we will explore how the Ancient Greeks have impacted modern society. This will range from looking at myths, sporting events and democracy. Alongside this, we will be tasting and designing our own Greek food.
 
Science
 
In Science, our topic is Evolution and Inheritance. We will be learning about how animals and humans have adapted over time to their environments; how animals vary due to inherited and environmental factors and how animals have evolved to survive in particular habitats.  
 

Homework

Homework will be uploaded onto Google Classroom on a Wednesday and will be due in the following Wednesday.  

Homework club has been set up on a Wednesday where the children can complete their work in the classroom with Miss Glassock as support (although a level of independence will be encouraged). It is also important that you spend time looking at the homework and spellings together and discuss the work to reinforce the learning in class. 

Each week the children must complete their; 

  • weekly spellings – these will be given out on a grid for the term. 
  • a short English task 
  • a short maths revision task 

In addition to the weekly homework, it is expected that all children will read on a regular basis and are responsible for selecting and changing their books regularly and should be encouraged to do so. 

MyMaths activities will be set and the children are reminded to use TTRS. You are also welcome to explore the MyMaths site and children can complete any ‘lessons’ they wish; this is particularly useful if they feel they need extra practise in a particular area.
