Welcome to Year 6
Welcome back, Year 6!
The summer holidays have gone so quickly, we cannot believe it is September already! We hope you have had a relaxing break and are ready for the autumn term.
Our first topic is 'Why do we remember?' where we will be learning about World War One- specifically about life in the trenches. We will be kicking off our topic by reading 'War Horse' by Michael Morpurgo to aid our literacy and reading lessons.
PE will be on a Wednesday and Thursday, please make sure you bring in your PE kits to change into at lunch time.
See you soon,
Miss Bond and Miss Sawdon
This week's learning
WC Monday 18th October 2021
This week we will be completing some maths tests to find out what we need to recap. We will go through the answers in small groups, identifying where we went wrong, and correcting our answers.
Now we have finished our independent fact files on how WW1 ended, we will be writing our own fact files on a topic of our choice. I am really looking forward to learning all about favourite animals, favourite football teams and the weird and wonderful.
In our guided reading sessions, we will continue reading War Horse.
Our next topic block is Geography. We will be looking at the continent of Europe, discussing its mountain ranges, rivers and capital cities. We will then be researching about a European country of our choice and creating a fact sheet of important information.
Stars of the Week
Evie L for always bringing positivity to the classroom.
Fae for always giving 110% in everything she does, even when she finds it tricky.
The following websites are still really useful for home-learning. All of the login information that you will need is on the information sheet that was sent in your green box.
We will be conducting spellings a bit differently this year. Our spellings lists will be a bit longer and so will be tested every two weeks. In class, we will be conducting spelling investigations using our words, and seeing if we can use them in our literacy and non-core writing.
