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 again this year. Miss Nagdee will also be supporting us in Lions this year. 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 Friday this term and you will need to wear your PE kit (joggers and a school jumper are fine) and trainers to school.
* Water bottles - There will be no cups in class. Please bring a suitable water bottle which will be kept at your table. The bottle must be taken home and cleaned each night.
* Homework is given out every Friday and should be returned to be completed by the following Friday. 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 Friday), TT Rockstars and one other piece to be completed.
Meet the Teacher
Unfortunately, due to the current situation, I have been unable to meet you in person. Here is a short video to give you some key messages about Year 6 Lions.
Please feel free to contact me using the form at the bottom of this page or call the school office. I look forward to meeting you in person in the not too distant future!
Our value this Autumn term is fairness. Look out for the values task!
This half term, we will be focusing on a survival story written by Bear Grylls and exploring that genre of writing.
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.
If you are unable to come into school due to self isolation for a period of time, please follow the links below and complete the set lessons. There will be five English and five maths lessons each week, which are closely linked to the ones taking place in school. Please also try to do at least one lesson on Reading Plus each day.
From next week we will be looking at biographies in class. There are 10 online lessons on biographies at the following link. If you are isolating, please complete the lessons in order.
There are five lessons to complete around securing times table knowledge and investigations. Please complete one per day.
