Carpe Diem - Seize the Day
Welcome to Year 6 - The Eagles
Welcome to Year 6,
The children from both Eagles and Falcons classes will be taught by both teachers this year. For English and Maths the children will be mixed but for other subjects, they will remain in their form groups.
Please, could you remind your child to hand their 'Home Link Book and 'Reading Journal' in every day, any messages should be recorded in the 'Home Link Book' and reading should be recorded in the 'Reading Journal'. Year 6 are encouraged to read at least six times a week and to write a brief summary of what they have read. It is also helpful to make a note of interesting vocabulary or phrases to magpie for their own writing. The children all have login details for the online site https://readtheory.org/ where they can complete online comprehension papers.
This term our topic will be ‘A Greek Odyssey’, a history based study of Ancient Greek life where
the children will pose and investigate their own questions. They will explore Ancient Greek daily life, medicines, food and the origin of the Olympic Games. During art, the children will draw mythical beasts and make clay plaques of their own mythical beast creation.
ICT will continue to be used to support other subjects, but the children will also learn how to use data handling software such as Excel. During PE they will work on the skills involved in net wall games and will build on their dance techniques linked to the Olympic Games.
Homework will be given on a Friday and should be returned on Thursday.
I have also included links to literacy, numeracy and science websites which will assist your learning. If you know of any useful websites, please let me know so I can add them for other people to access.
Mrs T Derham
