Jaguars - Year 6

20th November- In DT today, we conducted a Science experiment to test which materials would be the best insulators to keep our soup warm on an expedition at sea. Each group measured the temperature of boiling water with a different material.

13th November- Today, Jaguars classed tried a variety of vegetables, herbs and cheeses that could be made into a vegetable soup. Take a look at some of the cracking faces pulled when they found a food they disliked!

A little late, but well done to Elliot for winning the Golden Certificate!

                           

16th October- Today, to launch our Spooky Recipes unit in English, Jaguars class made Pumpkin Soup! It was delicious! Check out our photos below...

2nd October- In Science today, we explored the law of reflection- the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection. Check us out experimenting below...

It's National Poetry Day and Jaguars Class challenged themselves to write like a poet! Using a given structure, the children thought about their favourite things and used them to write descriptive, creative stanzas for a poem of their own. They are so proud of themselves for producing such imaginative poetry. Have a read to find out some more about each of them...

Take a look at our History and Science work this week...

Well done to George C for winning the first Golden Certificate of the school year!

Alice in Wonderland Launch: The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

What are we learning this year?

Welcome to Jaguars Class Page!

 

The Jaguars class is taught by Miss Scane.

 

Remember: The Year 6 school day will now be from 9:10am - 3:30pm.

 

PE STARTS ON MONDAY 14TH SEPTEMBER.

 

PE will be on a Monday. Please ensure that you wear your PE kit to school every Monday. We will not be getting changed prior to the lesson. This is an important part of our school curriculum and we encourage all children to take part. Appropriate PE kit consists of a white t-shirt, black or blue shorts or jogging bottoms and suitable footwear such as trainers or plimsolls.

 

Home Learning this year is going to be slightly different. It will consist of weekly tasks set on both TTRockstars and Spelling Shed. Your log in information will be sent out to you by the end of the first week back. Some additional home learning tasks or projects may be set at additional times throughout the year.

 

As was the case last year, individual reading records will not be given to children in Year 5 and 6. Instead there will be a class reading diary with individual pages for each child to track the books that they have read when they have finished them. Raffle tickets and prizes will still be in place for UKS2 and Miss Reed will be in charge of this.

 

Overview of Autumn 1

 

I am looking forward to an action-packed first half term with you all. I have some fantastic learning opportunities lined up, kick-started by our first History topic - The Titanic. This was a HUGE hit with the children last year and I am thoroughly excited to enjoy exploring the events that occurred on 14th April 1912 with you too. 

 

In English, we will be immersing ourselves in the classic novel 'Alice in Wonderland' by Lewis Carroll. To introduce this text, we will be starting off with our own version of the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, before spending the rest of Autumn 1 following the White Rabbit down the rabbit hole and into the bonkers world that is Wonderland!

 

In Maths, we will be studying number and place value, ensuring that we are secure with numbers to ten million. This will then be followed by revision of the four operations. Please come and speak to us if you have any questions about concepts or methods taught in class if you wish to support your child at home.

 

A gentle reminder: if you wish to provide your child with extra revision materials, please do not use previous SATs papers as these will be used for assessment throughout the school year. 

 

Please keep an eye on our class page for updates and snapshots of our learning! :)
