Year 6 Lions
Welcome to the Year 6 Lions!
My name is Mr Brown and I am delighted to be teaching the Year 6 Lions this year. Mrs Ward will also be helping us in Year 6. At the bottom of our class page, you will find lots of important information such as our class bulletin, homework grid, curriculum overview and lots of useful websites to support learning.
* PE - Our PE day is Thursday, however, it is important that the correct PE kit is in school at all times.
* School Library - The Lions are timetabled to visit the school library every Wednesday lunchtime. Don't forget to pick up a loyalty card for the chance to win a new book from the SMSJ bookshop!
* Homework is given out every Thursday and should be returned on Monday. All children have a homework book with a homework grid for the half term. Homework includes: home reading (3 parent signatures required), spellings (test every Monday), TTRockstars and one other piece to be completed.
Our value this half term is RESPONSIBILITY. Don't forget to complete your values task at home - it could be included on our next newsletter!
This half term, we will be reading a range of texts across about survival - across many genres.
In Maths, we will be focusing on place value up to 8 digits and calculations using all four operations. This will be underpinned by a weekly arithmetic lesson. Please ensure that your child has secure knowledge of times-tables up to twelve. These should be practised at home on a regular basis through Times Tables Rockstars.
As our topic for the term is ‘survival’, our geography and science units are linked to this theme. Geography will focus on economic and environmental changes, whilst science revolves around the adaptation of animals over time.
