Hello and welcome to 6S's class page. Our teacher is Miss Smethurst and we are also really lucky to have Miss Andrews, Mrs Newman, Mrs Watkins and Mrs White supporting our learning too!
We had a great start to the year and thoroughly enjoyed a trip to Cadbury's World where - as well as devouring some chocolate treats - we learnt about the Mayan culture and how they traded in coco beans.
In English, we are really enjoying reading Journey to the River Sea. We have written some fantastic non-fiction on the Amazon as well as a nail-biting dual narrative. In Maths, we are focusing really hard on our number skills.
As mentioned earlier, our topic work is based around the Mayan and we have learnt all about their society, number system and writing system.
In Science, we are learning all about the human body and what we need to do to stay healthy.
Our Geography work is based around South America and the different habitats (biomes) there are within the world. This links greatly with our science topics as well. We need our indoor P.E kits on a Wednesday and our outdoor kit on a Friday - as it's getting a little chilly. We are enjoying learning about invasions games and developing our fitness.
We have English and Maths homework handed out on a Wednesday and this needs to be returned completed by the following Wednesday. Spellings tests and new spellings are handed out each Monday.
Homework club will be Monday and Tuesday lunchtime.
