Welcome to the Year 6 Page!
Hello and welcome to 6S's class page. Our teacher is Miss Smethurst and we are also really lucky to have Mrs Williams supporting our learning too.
We had a great start to the year and thoroughly enjoyed a trip to Bristol Zoo where we learnt about Evolution and explored the zoo to better understand how creatures evolve and adapt to their environment.
In English, we are really enjoying reading Gangsta Granny. We have written some fantastic character descriptions for our very own 'gangsters' as well as a nail-biting dual narrative. In Maths, we are focusing really hard on our number skills.
Our topic work is based around Crime and Punishment and we will be visiting Warwick Castle soon to discover all the gruesome ways we would punish criminals in history.
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 Wednesday lunchtime.
