Today in DT, the children explored the history of soup by making a collaborative toilet roll timeline. They each took a fragment of the timeline and drew pictures to jog their memory when presenting to the class.

Light quiz

5th November - Today the children have been practising peer assessment techniques when revisiting vocabulary.

Exploring mood - 4th November

16th October - Today we kicked off our new writing unit on instructions by exploring algorithms and following a recipe for Pumpkin soup.

8th October 2020 - This week the children have been learning how to divide 3 and 4-digit numbers by 2-digit numbers. They all worked really hard, and I look forward to seeing how much they remember during retrieval practice over the next few months.

5.10.20 Class Netball

2nd October - Light investigation - Today we learnt about reflection and refraction. We investigated the laws of reflection and measured how the angle of reflection and the angle of incidence are related.

2nd October 2020 - This week, we have been learning how to solve longer multiplication problems. In order to achieve mastery, we must be able to spot mistakes in other people's calculations, and determine the misconception that they may have. Miss Stafford likes to show us examples of this in class to make sure we do not encounter the same errors. Here is an optional task where you can check calculations and determine the errors made.

National Poetry day - today we have been exploring Miss Wilson's vast collection of poetry books. The children have also created their own poems which I am sure they will enjoy sharing with you at home.

30th September 2020 - Mixed operations challenge. Last week, we learnt about mixed operations in maths. Can you add the brackets in the equations below?

Friday 25th September - Today, we discussed how shadows were formed. Using their newly acquired knowledge, the children were able to explain at what points of the day their shadow would be shortest and when it would be longest. They also found that the closer a light source is to an opaque object, the larger the shadow is cast from that object.

1)What is a life cycle?

2) What is the life cycle of most mammals such as dogs?

What are we learning this year?

The Tigers class is taught by Miss Wilson (Monday and Tuesday) and Miss Stafford (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). 

 

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

 

PE will be on a Monday.

PE STARTS ON MONDAY 14TH SEPTEMBER.

 

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

 

We are looking forward to an action-packed first half term with you all. We 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 we are 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!  laugh
