Welcome to Year 6
This year's Year Six team are Mr. Morris and Mrs. Gwyther!
Our theme for the half term is “I'm A Year Six, Get Me Out Of Here!”, which is all about survival, evolution and extreme environments. Our geography learning will focus on climate zones and biomes, while our science is centered on adaptation and inheritance in plants and animals.
Our artwork will be based on camouflage and patterns, and our class novel will be Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo.
We have P.E on Wednesday afternoon, and children will require a full kit.
We also have swimming on a Friday morning. Children require swimming shorts/ costume, a swimming cap and towel. We also recommend a coat for winter months as we will make our to Nye Bevan swimming baths on foot.
Our 'Starbooks' reading challenge offers children the chance to have a hot chocolate and biscuit in our reading corner when home reading is evident in reading diaries! Bring your book in everyday to collect your loyalty points!
To support Year Six children towards their SATS, we will regularly discuss test style questions. If you would like to know more please see either Mrs. Gwyther or myself anytime.
This week, Year Six have been learning about adaptation using popcorn, jelly beans and raisins! We’ve learnt that birds, in particular, have adapted the shape and size of their beaks depending on their location and food source in order to survive. Thanks Darwin!
In English, we’ve been writing diary entries as a stranded boy on a deserted island…scary!
