Welcome to Year 6
Spring Term 2021
Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday so please come dressed in your school PE kit on that day.
Our topic this half term is The Vikings. We will be exploring this topic by building a model Viking house out of wood, researching and writing a non-fiction report and singing Viking songs!
In Science we will be learning about the lifecycle of plants and growing seeds.
Keep a regular eye on our Class Dojo page for regular updates about our work.
In year 6, we encourage all pupils to undertake weekly homework tasks to develop their learning and prepare them for secondary school. This will usually involve a spelling activity focusing on that week's spelling rule and maths.
Reading should take place daily from the Rising stars books or independent readers from home or school. You or your child can record pages and/ or comments in the reading record.
For this half term's longer task, we would like the children to experiment with growing plants from different types of seeds and cuttings. We would love to see photos of the results.
Pupils will be given individual log in information so they can access the following sites from home on computers, tablets or phones. Many have a free App for easy access.
These can be used at any time but we will also set specific tasks that need to be completed at certain times.

We will also put homework onto Class dojo using pupil portfolios, please ensure your child can access this and submit any work completed.
