Welcome to Year 6   
Our Learning
 
Geography
 
Our main topic for the next term is Extreme Earth where we will explore where the most dangerous locations in the world are. We will be focusing on natural disasters; how they occur and their impact on the community and environment. 
 
Science
 
In science, we will be looking at Electricity & Light. We will look at the impact of voltage and components on a circuit and become familiar with the correct symbols to represent circuits.  
 

Homework

 

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

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.
