Welcome to the Year 6 class page.
Our teacher is Mrs Smith and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Hennessey and Mrs Keen.
Monday 19th April:
Welcome back to the summer term. During this final term in Year 6, we hope to pack a lot in. We already have cycling proficiency, a trip to Oakwood and a visit from Edgbarrow's work experience team planned in but we hope to do more.
We will be reading two books in English: Skellig by David Almond and The Explorer by Katherine Rundell. If you wish to bring in your own copy to use in class, please do so.
We will be designing and making our own cushion covers - so look out for spare beads, buttons, fabric and ribbon you may have at home. These might also come in useful for our mask making too.
World War 2 and a comparison between the UK and North America will be our topics in History and Geography. You will research and learn about the lives of inspirational people in RE; look at how to make web pages in Computing; study the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and diet and learn about the circulatory system in Science; practise the rhythm of Samba in Music and PE will give you chance to receive coaching in cricket and practise your track and field skills.
Please find an information video which has been put together on how you can support your child with learning to spell. These strategies can be used during as well as post Lockdown to inspire your child to learn their spellings and retain them.
I have also added a crib sheet of the strategies presented in the video as well as some additional strategies which aren't mentioned in the video.
Next week, the video will be moved to the Video Centre.
