Welcome to Class 6Q!
Hello and welcome to 6Q's class I am Miss Quayle and along with the fantastic Mrs Cosgrove we are going to be providing an exciting year for our fabulous Year 6's!
Our topic this term is World War 1 & 2, we will be looking at the different aspects of the war including life in the trenches, the Christmas day truce along women during the war.
We will also be going on a trip to the Imperial War Museum where we will be able to gain a better understanding of the war.
During our English lessons we will be focusing on a variety of texts including The Firework Maker's Daughter by Phillip Pullman, The City Jungle by Pie Corbett then we will be looking a short film called The Paperman. We will continue to develop our writing skills by using the Jane Considine style of writing that allows us to not only develop our vocabulary but also our grammar.
We are going to continue to work incredibly hard in preparation for our SATs, this will be done through daily English and Maths lessons with additional boosters during and after school.
Within our foundation subjects we are going to be learning about lots of exciting new things, such as in Geography looking at mountain ranges with a particular focus on Volcanoes.
In Science we are going to be looking at light and how we are able to see light through a variety of objects, with a particular interest in the eye and how it absorbs the light.
Every week children will be receiving both English and Maths homework, English to be given on a Tuesday and due in on Friday and Maths to be given on a Friday and due in on a Tuesday.
Children will also have weekly spellings to learn and times tables along with their reading which should be completed on a daily basis with a reading record that is to be signed by an adult and returned to school every day.
During the Spring term our PE lessons will be on a Tuesday, children will need a full kit including: black shorts, white t-shirt with pumps.
We will be keeping you updated with all of the fun things that we do on this page including pictures of our time in Year 6.
