Spring Term Learning: Our Changing World 


In Year 6 this term, in our geography unit we will be learning all about maps and coastlines. In English, we are exploring the book 'Darwin: An Expectional Voyage' where we will be writing our own discovery narratives and information texts on a new specie of animal. This will link into our science learning where we will be exploring evolution and inheritance. In art, we are looking at the work of Monet and starting to learn the song 'Happy' by Pharrell Williams in music! PSHE is focusing on staying safe and bodily changes, as well as getting stuck into fractions and decimals in maths!

On 7th February, children will be going on their residential trip to RobinWood! We are all very excited for 3 days of adventures!


Homework : Reading, Spellings and Timestables 

Reading - you should aim to read at least 3 times per week - this is the minimum expectation! Reading records will be checked on a Friday and will need to be signed by an adult. 


Spellings - ~Year 6 have weekly spelling lists that are sent home at the start of each half term and spelling tests will be on a Friday. 


TimesTables - Please log onto TTRS at least 3 times per week to practise your tables - they are vital and will help enormously with the maths curriculum in Year 6. 



P.E will be on a Thursday each week and lead by Neil from PDS. Please come to school in your P.E kit as you will not be allowed to get changed in school. Please see the uniform list for the appropriate kit that will be needed. Trainers are allowed to be worn. Don't forget to remove/cover any jewellery (including watches -and earrings) and make sure your hair is tied up if it is long. You can bring in a roll-on deodorant only.
