Welcome to the Year 6 web page, please check here for regular updates throughout the year for information related to our class curriculum, along with news, key information and dates, important updates and photographs of the exciting things and work that we have been getting up to.
**Please note that in the event of another lock down and the need for home learning to recommence, all work will be accessed from our class page and Purple Mash will resume as a means of communication between myself and the children.
Welcome to your final year here with us at James Brindley Year 6! I can't wait to welcome you all back to school and find out what you have all be up to since we left school back in March. I am very excited that I get to be your teacher once again this year and hope you are looking forward to starting our Year 6 journey together, along with Mrs Devney!
This term, our Geography based topic is ‘Will we ever see the water we drink again?’ which requires us to explore where our water comes from, where it is plentiful and how we use it. We will be using our Geography learning to focus our Music and Art lessons this term too. We will be investigating how different artist have used water to inspire their art, as well as composing our own music based upon different water sources. In Science we will be focusing on evolution and inheritance, investigating how Charles Darwin's theory of natural selection has led us to understand the world around us today.
During the first few weeks of school, we will be ensuring that your transition back is as comfortable as possible to help you settle back in nice and quickly! Therefore, our Maths and English lessons in these first few weeks will focus on reviewing and revisiting previous areas in our learning, giving me the opportunity to identify specific areas we need to target as we move forward.
It is vital that children always have an outdoor kit (warm bottoms, jumpers and trainers - please note these should all be items you do not mind getting slightly muddy) with them on these days as the vast majority of PE will be held outside.
Please can I also give you a gentle reminder that all jewellery and watches will need to be removed for PE sessions.
I have also added a document below with this term's spellings week by week. Your child will know what spelling group they are in.
