Spring One Learning Challenge
This half term the Year 6 Learning Challenge will be called Electric Storm and will focus on learning in Science, Geography and Technology. Below is the Knowledge organiser which provides the key learning and the key skills.
The Year 6 LM team are ...
Mr Moran is the class-teacher
(contact email email@example.com )
Miss Cocks is our teaching assistant
Mrs Warboys will provide P.P.A cover
Mr Stevenson will support us in our outdoor P.E learning
Mrs Parker and Mr Watson are the Intervention teachers,
supporting us in our Maths and reading.
Autumn learning in Year 6
We have a lot to enjoy learning about in Year 6. In Maths we will be
focusing initially on Place Value and the Four Operations. We will be part of
a new online maths programme every Wednesday which will help us catch up with any learning we have missed. Mrs Parker and Mr Watson will teach small groups to help us gain more confidence and feel more secure in our maths work.
In reading we will use a variety of texts to help us develop our understanding
of a range of genres, language style and organisational features.
What we read will also influence our written work, such as
William Shakespeare's 'The Tempest' when we will learn to write our own play- scripts in the style of Shakespeare. Writing opportunities will also be
linked with our Tudor topic when we learn to write letters
to be sent home from the battle of Bosworth.
Mrs Warboys will also teach some lessons on Tuesday and Wednesdays
and these might include any of the following; Maths, Reading,
Grammar, R.E, French, Music, Science or Topic. More information about
the topic, including the Knowledge Organiser for the Troublesome
Tudor history work can be found below.
We are all pleased that Mr Stevenson will continue to teach outdoor
P.E and sports on a Thursday. Weekly spellings / timetables and
homework will continue to be provided to reinforce learning and
provide an opportunity to share with adults at home what they have
learnt and now know. Any homework can be sent electronically or
if you need to contact me for any reason please use my email
Our Year 6 classroom
We are very fortunate in Year 6 to have the biggest and brightest classroom
in school. Some of us last year worked hard in the same classroom when a
part of the mixed age class. Having an outside door will mean we can stay
within our own bubble more easily! We can arrive and leave through the door
every school day. I'm sure we will benefit from the many positive features
that our room and it's contents have to offer.
Our first Topic of the year is THE TROUBLESOME TUDORS. Have a look at the Knowledge Organiser for this exciting historical period of our British history. We will be studying the Tudors across the Autumn term and will be fortunate to visit Bramhall Hall in November to see such a grand Tudor building. We're looking forward to teaching you about such a colourful period in our history.
