Rhinos – Year 6
Welcome to our class' page on which you will find information, plans, resources, photographs and evidence of our amazing work! Please scroll to the very bottom of the page in order to find links to planning and work set for this week, or previous work set (which can be found in the archive folder).
Spring Term 2021
For the first half term, the topic for the whole of Key Stage Two will be 'Amazing Americas!'. Hopefully, this will help those families with more than one child who is learning at home. The pupils will be taking a road trip across the U.S.A: they will be learning about mountains and rivers in both American continents and they will be producing imaginative writing set in North or South America.
In maths, we will begin with decimals and percentages, before moving on to algebra, ratio, measures and statistics later in the term. Each morning there will be teaching videos on Seesaw to support those pupils learning at home and I will be available to contact via Seesaw and e-mail if you need any support, or to send your work for my feedback. Well done for all of your commitment in working hard and sending work to me promptly; it's great to see your dedication and great attitudes!
Also this term, we have a new member of staff joining our class: Miss Hardy. She will be with our class for the duration of the spring term as she gains more teaching experience. We are delighted to welcome her to our school and class and we feel lucky to be able to have an extra educator available to help with both in-school and home learning. I'm sure you will all make her feel welcome and make a great impression over the coming weeks!
Check back soon for more updates and for more evidence of the excellent learning occurring in class.
Autumn Term 2020
Below are our self portraits which were painted as part of our Diversity topic at the beginning of this academic year; we aimed to show that there is even a great deal of diversity just within our class!
Below are some photographs of our recent RE lesson, in which we used clay modelling and stop frame animation to demonstrate behaviours and attitudes we would expect humanists to show.
So far this term, our main two topics have been Diversity in the World and, presently, we are focusing on Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (linking with Ancient Greece). The pupils have produced some super creative writing in the form of recounts, narratives, character descriptions and newspaper articles. Read some of their exceptional writing below!
