Welcome to Year 6!
Our team consists of:
Mrs Shepherd - Class Teacher
Miss Mathews - Teaching Assistant
This half term we are working on: -
Evolution and Inheritance
This half term we have a Science focus. We will investigate the scientific concepts and our understanding of inheritance and adaptation. We will be learning about inherited and acquired characteristics, as well as the key ideas of the theory of evolution and how humans have evolved.
Our PE lessons this term will be Gymnastics on a Tuesday afternoon and Games on a Friday afternoon but please make sure your PE kit is in school all week.
Home Learning will be issued on a Friday and is to be completed and handed in by Wednesday. They will be given a weekly LSCWC spelling pattern sheet and activity sheet to be completed in pencil or blue pen. They will have either an English or Maths activity to complete, relating to the work we have covered that week. Most sheets will be stuck into their Home Learning book before they bring the book home.
Although Y6 are no longer using the Renaissance Reading scheme, they are still expected to read at least 2 / 3 times a week at home and record it in their planner.
The PTFA have purchased a great times table package for the school called 'TT Rockstars'. There are lots of different areas the children could go into including the ‘Garage’ or ‘Studio’. The Garage is a training mode where they work through the tables (recommended) and the Studio is random questions up to the 12x12 times table. Ultimately, we hope this makes learning the times tables fun while they become more fluent and knowledgeable in their times table recall. They can also earn ‘coins’ to update their avatar rock star!
If you have any concerns, or question, please do not hesitate to contact us. We can be reached through Class Dojo or our class e-mail account ( firstname.lastname@example.org), or the school telephone number. We are usually in the classroom most days after school , or from 8.40am in the morning.
Mrs Shepherd & Ms. Mathews
