Class Teacher: Mr Harris
Welcome to Year 6!
It is hard to believe that we are two-thirds through our journey already! Now that we are at the exciting end of year 6, we can start to look ahead to the important events to come (trips, performances, talent shows...)! We also have the end of KS2 assessments (SATS) fast approaching on the week of 9th May.
As expected, we are incredibly busy with our learning right across the curriculum. We are having a particular focus on spellings at the moment - this includes using the year 3/4 and year 5/6 word lists (see button to the right) as well as non-negotiable spellings in all of our work.
In English, our work has been inspired by the adventurer and explorer Ernest Shackleton. We were inspired by the discovery of his ship - The Endurance - which has been found after 107 years under the Antarctic ice! We have just written a non-chronological report based on his life. Check out the news story https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-60662541 ) for yourself or feel free to quiz the year 6 children!
Our current theme is called 'Rule Britannia', which involves us exploring the Vikings and their impact on Great Britain. See our topic map at the top right of the page.
In science we are busy exploring light. We have reminded ourselves of our prior learning and will be getting our heads around shadows and how our eyes allow us to see.
Our current Key Instant Recall Fact is recalling square numbers and identifying prime numbers. Follow this link to read more about our KIRFs.
As always, please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions, queries or concerns.
The children have voted 'Pig Heart Boy' by Malorie Blackman as our current class novel.
We are following the journey of thirteen-year-old Cameron, as he undertakes a heart transplant with a difference.
