Welcome to Year 6
Class Teacher: Mr A Claridge
Learning in the Spring Term
This half term, Class 6 are going to be studying science in order to answer the question 'How could our local area become a BlueZone?' We are going to study the effects of ageing, learn how humans have evolved, discover how the heart and lungs function and understand the impact that diet, exercise and lifestyle can have on humans.
We are going to learn from professionals and scientists throughout the half term who will help us to understand the responsible choices that we have to make as we grow older. As a class, we are going to work to host a science fair where we will inform people of the outcomes of our research and present our findings on how our local area could become a BlueZone.
Through the gateway of well-being, we will become responsible, well-informed scientists.
Class 6 will have their PE taught on Tuesdays and Wednesdays by Miss Young. Please ensure that children have their kits in school on these days. All kits should be named and stored safely in their lockers.
Reading remains vital for children in Year 6. Despite your children being able to read fluently and independently, it is still important to hear them read daily and discuss what they have read with them. Children can choose to read books from school or from home and should complete their AR quiz once they have finished the book.
Children will also receive mathematics and spelling homework. This will be given out on a Friday and children will have until the following Friday to complete the work and learn the spellings.
