Hello Class 6 and welcome back!
In this Autumn Term we will be learning about the Americas.We will be going on a voyage of discovery to South America as we learn about the countries, culture and geography of this fascinating continent. We will learn about the climate, the geographical features, the industries and the people of South America through a range of fun activities, giving an insight into how life in South America is different to life here in the UK. In English, we will be studyig the novel 'Journey to the River Sea'. This novel complements our Geography topic as it is set in the Amazon rainforest.
In this unit of Science we will learn all about nutrition, the importance of exercise, our hearts and more. We will investigate how water and nutrients are transported in the circulatory system and recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on how our bodies function.
In this topic called Loving, children will be talking and thinking about their family. We will be learning about unconditional love and thinking about who shows us unconditional love.
In the first Autumn half term, children will have hockey, which is being taught by Mrs Hulse, our class TA. It is important that children have their full P.E kit in school at all times.
Children are expected to read every night. Please ask your child questions about what they have read in order to check their understanding and complete the reading record.
Maths homework is set on a Friday and is due in on a Monday and will be set on MyMaths.
English homework is set on Friday and is due in on the following Friday.
Children will be bringing home a RWI log book everynight. They will log spellings in this which they have to practise and learn at home. They will then need to bring the logbook back to school.
Children will also have spellings to practise on Spelling Shed. Children have also got the Year 5 and 6 spelling list stuck in their purple homework books. These spellings need to be practised at home.
This is a really important year for the children. I would appreciate your full support with encouraging your children to complete all pieces of homework, reading daily and learning times tables and spellings.
Many thanks for your continued support.
Miss Hinchley, Mrs Hulse and Mrs Rimmer.
