Welcome to Year 6!
Our team consists of:
Mrs Shepherd - Class Teacher
Miss Mathews - Teaching Assistant
This half term our topic is:
This topic will involve the children identifying how animals and plants are suited to and adapt to their environment in different ways; recognising that living things have changed over time and that fossils provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago. They should also recognise that living things produce offspring of the same kind, but normally offspring vary and are not identical to their parents. We will be finding out how adaptation leads to evolution of plants and animals and recognise how and why the human skeleton has changed over time, since we separated from other primates. We will be researching the work of key scientists such as Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace.
I have attached an overview of the half term for your information. Please bear in mind that this is only a guide and things may alter as the term progresses.
Y6 ACTIVITIES 2021
Our PE lessons this half term will be Games on a Friday afternoon, please make sure you wear PE kit in to school on these days.
Home Learning will be issued on a Friday to be completed and kept at home. They will be given a weekly LSCWC spelling pattern sheet and activity sheet along with a Maths or English activity sheet to be completed in pencil or blue pen.
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 / journal, which is currently kept in school.
The PTFA have again 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 the school telephone number. We are usually in the playground most days after school , or from 8.30am in the morning.
