Welcome to Year 6 / Badger Class!
Class Teacher - Miss Beckett
Teaching Assistant - Mrs Weeden
Hope you all had a lovely, restful Easter break eating plenty of chocolate! It was so lovely for us to be together and get back into the swing of things the last three weeks of term. This term is a shorter term so I can imagine it will be a busy one however I am sure it will be full of many laughs and jokes. Dare I say it but we will also begin looking at transition and preparing for secondary school.
What Makes the Earth Angry?
Curriculum - During Terms 5 and 6 we will be looking at natural disasters. We will learn about volcanoes, tsunamis and earthquakes. Not only will we be looking at the geography and science behind these disasters but we will look at how these impact on peoples lives around the world. We will be using dance, drama and music to investigate tsunamis.
Maths - For Term 5 we will be focusing on statistics and properties of shapes. As starters in our maths lessons we will be revising the four operations and looking to fill in some of the gaps of learning we missed during lockdown. Not having SAT's has given us the extra time to look at missed units.
English - The text we will be reading is 'Floodland by Marcus Sedgwick.' We will be looking at writing to entertain by writing our own eerie, spooky narrative. Towards the end of term we will then move onto writing to inform by writing our own letters and newspaper reports.
Everyday we will have 10 minute spellings and 10 minute class guided reading session still using VIPERS. Every week you will be sent home a spelling list. Please make sure you are learning these spellings, you only need to spend 5-10 minutes a day on these. We are also going to have a push on reading at home. Again, all you need is 10-15 minutes after school to read. Let's get those year 6 reading bugs!
Science - Living things and their habitats.
PE - Athletics. Our PE days for term 5 are 22/04, 06/05, 20/05. On our PE days children may come to school in PE kit. We will be out on the field every lesson unless the weather takes a turn for the worse.
Forest School - Forest School dates for this term are 29/04 and 13/04. On Forest School days children can come to school in their Forest School clothes.
French - This term in French we will be learning how to say family members and describe them in French. The second half of the term we will be learning how to say items of clothing and how to describe them.
RE - What matters most to Christians and humanists?
PSHE - We will be looking at the themes 'Living in the Wider World' as well as 'Rights and Responsibilites.'
Music - Following our Charanga programme we will be learning how to sing 'You've got a friend in me.'
Computing - Using Purple Mash we will be looking at blogging. We will decide what makes a good blog, make our own blog post, write a shared class blog post, evaluate and edit.
