|Mrs Clark and Mrs Patient|
We are funny, we are bright, in year 6, we get things right!
Attitudes and values are what you need to know,
If you follow them, they will show you where to go.
Love, honesty, respect and courage,
These are some of the things we try to encourage.
(children of year 6)
Our Topic is ‘Darwin’s Delights’
This topic is science and geography based as we travel through time to follow Darwin’s adventures on the Galapagos Islands. We will study the theory of evolution making links to the animals Darwin discovered off the coast of South America.
Books: Our daily reader is ‘Crater Lake’ and the book we are studying in Literacy is, ‘Skellig’.
Long Term Plan:
Medium Term Plan:
Half Term Plan:
Homework will be set every Monday and should be completed by the following Monday.
Reading: We will have guided reading every day where children will be heard read for part of the lesson at least once a week. We expect that every child should have a reading book in school which they can read for the pleasure. They should still be heard to read at home which should be recorded in their diaries.
English: Every week, there will be homework set on www.spag.com Children will have their logins stuck into their homework diaries.
Spellings: These will be given out every Monday to be learnt over the week and then tested the following Monday. We will have daily spelling lessons, these may sometimes link to the spellings your child has to learn.
PE will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please ensure that your child is sent into school on those days wearing their PE kit. During the winter months, PE may sometimes still be outside, so please consider a tracksuit for those colder periods.
