Welcome to Year Six

 

This year we have such a busy time ahead. It will require plenty of hard work, patience, 

determination and that all important growth mind set. We have plenty of exciting times 

to look forward to and we aim for this last year to be memorable for your children. 

 As the oldest children in the School Year Six are expected to set a good

example to the younger children. We're organised, we're ready,  so let's get started!

 

 

Reading

 

The children will be encouraged to read for pleasure and at home.

We will have reading comprehension lessons usually on Mondays and Tuesdays. 

 The children will have the opportunity to read

their home / school book daily so it is important they have their book and planner with them.

Please continue to read and share books with your children and sign their planner when they

have finished their book.

Children who can demonstrate that they read their home school books and change them weekly

will receive a small prize at the end of each half term.

 

PE

 

Children do PE twice each week and should make sure they have a PE kit in school at the start of each week.

Dark shorts and a white T-shirt and pumps are required for indoor PE and trainers and jogging bottoms can be worn outside in colder weather. 

Autumn 1 

 

Our first Learning challenge of the year is all about the Ancient Greeks. 

We started the topic with a Greek food-tasting of calamari(deep fried squid), feta cheese, tzatziki, humous, pitta bread, olive oil and olives.

 

The calamari and feta cheese were pretty popular. The olives, however, were more of an acquired taste!
Our first science topic was about Living things. As part of this unit we carried out an investigation into microorganisms - namely bread mould. We started with fresh slices of bread which we placed inside sealed plastic bags and observed them a week later after they had been kept in various conditions to see which developed the most mould.

Our results ranged between some of the bread (that had been kept in the fridge) being relatively mould-free whilst other slices (not-refrigerated) were extremely mouldy.

We also studied vertebrates and invertebrates. We found out that there are 5 types of vertebrate: mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish and birds. We made pictures using art straws to show the skeletons of some of these animals.
