Year 6 Leopards
Welcome to the Year 6 Leopards' Page!
This year the Leopards will be working with Mrs Coley, Mrs Sieczkowski and Mrs Ward.
The Leopards' library day will be every other Monday and it is important that children make the most of this exciting opportunity and read a range of texts and genres.
This half term the Leopards are continuing to complete some SUPER pieces of writing. Through this work, they are showing that they are conscious of their reader and that they can choose vocabulary and features specific to the type of text that they are writing.
The Leopards will be given revision homework each week for reading, grammar and maths. They may also be given topic, RE or science to complete. Every week they will receive spellings to learn and are expected to get three signatures in their home reading book. It is also very important that the Leopards know all the times tables (to 12 x 12) and can recall them easily, with their corresponding division facts. Homework is due back on the following Tuesday.
This half term our topics are:
- 'Dinosaurs' in Science
- 'What will our world look like in the future?' in Geography
- 'Painting' in Art
- 'What is in the news?' in French
- 'Transition to high school' in Jigsaw
- 'What do religions say to us when life gets hard?' in RE.
Our value this half term is 'Trust'. We would like as many children as possible to participate in the value task at home and to return it to school this half term.
This half term, we will be doing PE on Thursdays and Fridays and our topics will be gymnastics and team games. Please ensure children have their full P.E. kits in school on this day and that all jewellery is removed in order for them to participate safely.
The Leavers' Performance
This half term, the Leopards have the exciting opportunity to work with the year 6 staff and Mr Simpson to create their leavers' performance. During their rehearsals, they will have the opportunity to learn how to act, speak with expression, sing, dance and gain an understanding of what goes on 'behind the scenes'.
This half term will provide the children with the knowledge and the skills needed to move onto high school successfully.
