Wolves

 

Teacher: Ms Bettridge

TA: Mrs Tallent, Mrs Tate and Mrs Kirby

 

Homework:

The children all have their own homework diary to keep track of homework due, their year 6 roles and responsibilities, clubs etc.

MA books will go out on a Friday and be due in Wednesday

Literacy will go out on a Wednesday and be due in Monday

Spellings will go home Friday for a test the following Friday.

(The children will also have to hand in sentences using the given spelling to ensure they can use the words in the correct context.)

The children will start the day on the Green Triangle if they bring in their completed homework the day after it goes home. (This will set up a good habit for secondary school!)  

 

Literacy:

We are focusing on a book called The City of Ember. We will be immersing ourselves into a alternate world where everyone lives underground as the last surviving race of humanity. Our writing objectives will continue to link with the expectations of the National Curriculum, and the year 6 children will be adding to their independent writing task that goes towards their end of year assessment.  

Maths:

We will continue to recap previous learning, particularly the four operations, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions and converting units. As always, there is an emphasis on times tables knowledge and we will have weekly tests where the children all progress on their own levels. Reasoning questions are something the children tend to find tricky (explaining how they know) so we will be looking at various question types.  

Topic:

Our topic is based on survival.

In science, we will be looking at the biology of our bodies eg. circulatory and respiratory system and things that have a positive as well as negative effect on these, including smoking, drugs, exercise and diet. We will also have the opportunity to look at animal organs in a practical session.  

Within forest school, the children will pretend they have been stranded in the area and they will have to recap their previous learning about the most important factors to keep alive.

We will be looking in to the survival of our planet and what effect the human population has on it and what we can do to reduce the damage. This will include a discussion on Green House gasses and the effect carbon dioxide has.
