Miss Rashid & Mr Pursglove welcome you to our class page. Here you can find all the information for our Year 6 Class.
Timetable – Spring 1
In Year 6, children are provided with revision workbooks from which they will be given tasks on a weekly basis. These tasks will be provided on Thursdays and also be checked on Thursdays. These tasks are aligned with in-class learning; completing these tasks is extremely vital and childrens’ independent responsibility. Miss Rashid and Mr Pursglove are available through the course of the week to discuss any revision work with children in school time.
PE – Our PE day is Wednesday. All Year 6 children are expected to bring in their full PE kit along with a pair of pumps. During the Spring term we are engaging in an exciting Athletics and Invasion Games unit.
History – Islamic Civilisation
During our Islamic Civilisation topic we will be indulging in some rather exciting facts. Throughout our Topic we will be encountering some interesting historic figures, one of which we will soon have the pleasure of meeting a descendant of in our very own classroom! We will be studying the amazing Golden age of Islam in the city of Baghdad and learn about how it finally came to an end due to the barbaric Mongol Invasion.
Science – Classification
Year 6 is learning about ‘Classification’ in Science. We are intrigued by Linnaeus and his intricate classification keys and systems and will further be using these in our Science sessions to classify plants, animals, fungi and bacteria.
In Year 6 we are indulged in a fascinating adventure novel; Running Wild! During this unit we will be looking at skills such as story planning and writing, constructing formal letters of both persuasion and complaint as well as engaging in formal debate.
