WELCOME TO YEAR 6!
The teachers in Year Six are:
Miss Crofton (6C), Miss McAnally (6M) and Miss Barry (6B).
We will be supported by: Mrs Sharp
In Year Six we will usually set homework every Monday and expect it handed in by Friday. We know that reading is important to support your child's imagination, creativity and learning across all subjects. Therefore, reading for up to 15 minutes each evening for up to 5 evenings per week will be expected as part of your child's weekly homework. Children can choose a school reading book, a library book, or a book from home. Please ensure that your child reads independently and records their opinions about the book. It is also important that children get the opportunity to discuss their reading with an adult regularly, this will aid their reading comprehension skills. Of course it will still benefit Year Six children to read aloud to an adult at home.
The Year Six Team.
Our learning this week - 2nd December 2019
In English we will be continuing our book, 'stay where you are and leave.' This text is linked to our WWI topic and we will be learning lots about the causes and what life was like. We will also be revising for our tests.
During our Maths lessons we will be completing our learning about fractions and revising for tests.
In RE we will be continuing 'expectations' by exploring Mary's role.
In Science we will be investigating electrical insulators and conductors.
Our DT work is planning Christmas stockings.
We are continuing to learn songs for our Christmas concert and completing our work on hobbies in French.
Our PE will be netball outside - please bring in a plain, old tracksuit.
Today we learnt lots more about World War I by taking part in a special day. Our day included dressing up as people living during World War I, which we researched for homework. During the day we took part in a workshop where we were shown a gun just like the soldiers would have carried- it was really heavy! We learnt how soldiers had to have a medical before being accepted into the army and re-enacted being in the trenches. Soldiers had a very strict regime and we practised marching in formation.
In class, we made plasticine models of tanks, planes and soldiers and we also created 'silhouette' artwork using paint and silhouettes of battle scenes.
We thoroughly enjoyed learning more about WWI, dressing up and experiencing a little bit of WWI.
