Welcome to Y6. Miss Pratt and Mrs Mashford are thoroughly looking forward to working with the children this year and are excited by all the thrilling things we have planned!
Our text this half term is Holes by Louis Sachar.
A lot of our work this half term will be based on the book and it will include:
- writing diaries in the character of Stanley (the main character in Holes),
- producing some animal art work
- carrying out a STEM project on habitats for the yellow spotted lizards
Our first science topic is ‘living things and habitats’.
Other topics we will be covering over the year include: World War 2, Egypt, evolution and in heritance, light and electricity.
The other books we will be studying in year 6 are: A Monster Calls, Flour Babies, The Silver Donkey and The Chocolate Tree.
PE dates for both classes are Tuesdays and Wednesdays. However, PE kits need to be in school on Mondays and be taken home for a wash on Fridays.
Homework will be given out every Thursday and it needs to be handed in on Mondays.
