6S Class Page

Welcome to the wonderful world of 6S!

Mrs Sanders, Mr Marriott and Mrs Helme are here to help parents and children.  If you have any questions about Year 6, please come and speak to us.

 

We have PE on Monday and Friday afternoons.

Weekly homework will be uploaded onto Google Classroom.  This will be weekly spellings and some additional maths or English each week.  The children aim to be ‘every night a reader’ and reading books will be checked each morning in class.

Links to Spelling Shed, Times Table Rockstars and Rapid Readers are on the class pages of Google Classroom.

Autumn 1 – Ancient Greeks

IN Autumn 1, we learnt about Ancient Greece.

After researching what life was like in Greece in the past, the children used some ingredients commonly found in Greece to make their own tzatziki and salad. They evaluated the food afterwards and we found that we loved the new flavours!

Autumn 2 – World War 2

This term we are learning about the events of WWII and its impact on the lives of people in Britain. We have a couple of trips planned around this topic so please look out for information on these. The children are very interested to learn about WWII and have made a great start to the topic with insightful questions and mature discussions.

The Big Draw!

On Friday 4th November the children spent the day developing their drawing skills, and in particular, their use of perspective and horizon.

Spring 1 – Power 

 

This half term we will be learning all about different types of power. In science, we will build on learning from Year 4 to develop our understanding of electricity and circuits. We will then use this and our work on algorithms in computing to design and create our own remote controlled cars! The term kicked off with a really exciting visit to Heysham Power Station, where the staff were blown away by our knowledge and our wonderful behaviour.

We also held a SATs information evening for parents with details of what to expect in the coming months and how to be relaxed and ready. This information can be accessed by clicking the link. SATs parent meeting 2023
