Welcome to Year 6!
This is the class page for Year 6 where you can find important information about our class and what we've been up to. Our class teacher is Mrs Bain and our class TA is Miss Littleford. We're also taught by Mr Edwards and Mrs Williams on a Thursday afternoon. Our topic for this term is Natural Disasters. At the bottom of this page, there's a link to our curriculum overview, showing what the children will be learning in each subject this term.
This term, our PE days are on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please send your child into school wearing their PE kit on these days.
If you have any questions that can't be answered from the information below, please contact either the school office or Mrs Bain.

English & SPaG
The children will be continuing to work on setting descriptions at the beginning of the week. On Monday, they are planning a setting description of a beach just before a tsunami hits, thinking about how to build tension and atmosphere in their work. On Tuesday, they will be writing their setting descriptions as an assessed piece before moving on to learning about character descriptions for the rest of the week. Our SPaG focus is going to be relative clauses and personal pronouns.
The children are going to be learning about line graphs this week and learning how to read and interpret them as well as how to draw them. On Wednesday, the children will do an end-of-unit assessment on statistics before we start our new topic on the four operations.
In guided reading, we are focusing on vocabulary this week. We will be looking at a text and picking out specific words, using the context to explain their meaning. We are also reading Chapter 5 of our class book Escaping the Giant Wave together and answering test-style questions based on the text.
We are continuing to learn about materials in science this week and are beginning the week with an experiment using different types of sugar and seeing how long it takes for them to dissolve in water. They will be using vocabulary such as solvent, solute and solution and will explain what a reversible and irreversible change is.
This Week's Homework
The children will receive a small daily homework to be completed for the following day. We go through the homework together in class each morning and therefore the children are expected to bring their homework books in each day. The children are given a printed copy to be stuck into their homework book each day, but you can find a copy of each piece of homework below too. Remember to continue to read each day as well as practise spellings and times tables.
