Below is a link for the Year 6 World War Two project to complete before half term. All of the instructions you should need are in the document; however if you have any questions, or are not sure about anything, parents can contact me through Class Dojo. This project should be the main focus of the week and children can complete the activities listed below if they have time.
Don't forget to upload any work which you complete on Class Dojo for me to see.
EXTRA ACTIVITIES in addition to our World War Project, a weekly task will be set on Reading Eggspress and children can finish any of the work from the two work packs that has not completed so far. I will also be posting links on the Class Story section of Class Dojo to on line activities for different curriculum areas that can be completed.
For those who have not yet signed up to Class Dojo, you should have received a link via email on Thursday 14th May. I will try again to contact those who I have been unable to reach so far for email addresses during next week.
I hope everyone is well. Have a great half term and hopefully I will see you all soon.
This half-term, our topic in Year 6 is ‘We are Dinosaur Hunters…’ During this topic we will be finding out about: the different ages of the dinosaur era and the species of dinosaurs that roamed Earth during these periods; how fossils are formed; dinosaur food chains; how dinosaurs hunted and attacked their prey; defence against predators and the possible causes of their extinction.
In our first English topic, we will be researching carnivorous and planting eating dinosaurs and writing and illustrating our own non-fiction books.
In addition, we will learning French as our modern foreign language and studying the life and work of a French artist.
PE kits are needed every Tuesday afternoon.
Reading regularly and for sustained periods at home as well as in school is vital. This will improve fluency, stamina and understanding which will help your child achieve the expected standard in reading for their age-group by the end of Y6.
The children will be given reading books to take home which can be changed as often as is necessary and they are also welcome to choose books from our school library or read books from home.
Please encourage your child to read regularly and complete their home-reading record which should be taken home and returned to school daily.
SPELLINGS AND HOMEWORK
Spellings will be given out each week on a Wednesday and our weekly spelling test will be on a Monday. Spellings should be practised for a short time each day if possible: not just the night before the test!
The children also receive weekly Mathematics and English homework. Please ask your child if they have completed their homework and remind them to make sure it is returned to school on time.
