Croeso i Blwyddyn 6     Welcome to Year 6

 

Staff: Mr Williams & Mrs Lodwig

Curriculum 

This year we will continue to work within our Cornerstones Curriculum.  We will be covering five topics over the course of the school year. Our topics for this year will be ‘Hola Mexico!’, Blood Heart’, ‘Pits & Ponies’, ‘Darwin’s Delights’ and ‘I.D.’ Any interesting artefacts/information about these topic would be welcomed into class.

Homework

English and maths homework will be set on a Friday (when appropriate) and it is to be returned by the following Thursday. Maths homework will be mainly set through the Active Learn website. Children can also make regular use of the Times Tables Rock Stars website in order to improve their times tables. The children will also be asked to complete project-based work at appropriate times.

Current Homework:

  • The children have been set a project-based task, which asks them to research and present on a subject related to Mexico. The work could be presented in a variety of different ways to explain their findings (already been discussed with children). Children should be able to speak on their chosen subject for around 4-5 minutes. The projects are due on Monday 23rd October;
  • Active Learn – Cloud Clash (subtraction) – Thursday 19th October.

Spelling

Spelling tests will be every Monday. Please help your child learn their spellings for the tests in order for them to know and apply these words to their work.

P.E. 

P.E. will generally be every Tuesday, but a suitable kit for indoor/outdoor activities needs to be in school at all times.
