Class 6 2019 - 2020
Year 6: final frontier
These are the voyages of an intrepid group of children
It's their one year mission to explore new topics
To seek out new life and to learn about new civilisations
To boldly go where no class has gone before!
Happy New Year!
I hope you've enjoyed a great Christmas and are now ready for the next challenges in Year 6? We've got some great events lined up for the Spring term as well as a range of interesting subjects to study. In Year 6 this term we'll continue our big push on reading for pleasure, the children have been given reading record books to record their reading progress.
Intially in Literacy, we'll be looking at the story of the Chinese Willow pattern and other traditional tales from China. The children will continue to hone their writing skills with a variety of different genres.
In Maths, the class will be studying decimals and percentages before moving on to measurements and algebra. Weekly homework will re-enforce their knowledge and understanding of these topics.
Additionally, year 6 will be focusing on our main topic of China. This will be centred around the children's independent humanities work. Hopefully, later on in the term we will have our annual visit from Chinese students. This has always improved the children's understanding of different cultures and provides a first hand opportunity to learn about Chinese society.
Events to look forward to this term include Chemistry with Cabbage - a whole day of science based around the chemical properties of red cabbage juice! (Wednesday 15th January). In February, the year 6's will have the opportunity to take part in the Bikeability scheme run by Cheshire East. This practical programme teaches the skills necessary to cycle safely on the roads.
Mrs Hayes will take the class on a Tuesday, she will be focusing on grammar, spelling and reading skills aswell as French in the afternoon. Throughout the term year 6 will continue to have drumming lessons with Mr Proctor every Thursday morning. Mr Gibbons will be teaching gymnastics on a Friday morning.
As always, there will be a number of rotated jobs and responsibilities for children in year 6 such as collecting snack money or assembly duty. Homework is given out on a Friday and collected in the following Wednesday. PE kits need to be in school for the entire week.
