Year 6 Leopards
Welcome to the Year 6 Leopards' Page
This year the Leopards will be working with Mrs Coley, Mrs Sieczkowski, Mrs Ward and Mrs Mehmood.
The Leopards' library day will be on a Monday (once every two weeks) and it is important that children make the most of this exciting opportunity by reading a range of texts and genres that challenge them. Children also have access to our class library on a daily basis.
This half term the Leopards will be completing some SUPER pieces of writing. Through this work, they are showing that they are conscious of their reader and that they can choose appropriate vocabulary and features specific to the type of text that they are writing.
This half term our topic is Classic Fiction. Within this topic we will be studying a range of texts including Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. We will complete a range of activities within the structure Reading, Gathering Content, Writing, Presenting.
The Leopards will be given homework each week for english 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. Every child will receive a homework folder to keep their homework in for the year.
This half term our topic is Britten's Got Talent. We will be studying this topic through our science, art and design computing and music lessons.
Our value this half term is 'Courage'. 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 every Wednesday and our topic is Dance. 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.
