Year 6 Class Update

 

Dear Parents

The children in Beech class have settled well and we have enjoyed our first two weeks back.

From next week, homework will be set via Showbie on Tuesdays, so I will contact you shortly with the class log-in.  We will be learning about the ancient Maya civilization and making a comparison with the Anglo-Saxons at the time.  We will be studying the diverse geographical landscapes with its human and physical features.  I will also use Showbie for little messages or reminders to parents.

We are looking at ways to keep safe online such as when we are downloading Apps to ensure we are able to turn off permissions to access private settings or information stored on our devices.  We have been learning about the function of the circulatory system in science and linked this to the importance of our PE lessons and keeping active.

In maths, we have started with representing, ordering, comparing and rounding numbers to ten million and the order of operations.  In English we have been scanning the text for key words to find answers to questions as well as -able and -ible endings for spelling.  We are now in the process of writing a poem based on a land feature of Mexico.  We have learnt how to use pastel and watercolour techniques to represent a variety of landscapes.

We have reflected on Her Majesty’s life with gratitude.

With best wishes

The Year 6 Team
