Welcome back, Year 6 – it’s now the summer term, so lots of fun learning!
It’s been great to have you all back for the few weeks before Easter, leading up to a very special time for us when we remember that Jesus gave his life for our sins and was resurrected as the Saviour of our world. We hope that you had a lovely week with your families at home. Hopefully, soon lockdown will begin to ease and you will have a little bit more freedom to spend time with the people you care about. Till then, we have some amazing learning opportunities for you!
Our theme will continue to be based on submarines (their history, development and structures) and marine life, with some exciting design work to explore. In science, we will be learning about Evolution and adaption, studying the work of Charles Darwin. English will be linked to Evolution and we will be studying books about Darwin; we will also be reading a book called “When Darwin Sailed” during whole-class shared reading. In maths, we will continue with work on ratio and begin to explore problem solving activities linked to this.
Excitingly, our trainee teacher, Mr Doherty, will be with us until the end of June and will be delivering many of our lessons.
So we have lots to look forward to!
Lots of love, Miss McKenna, Mrs Stanley, Mrs Mole and Mr Doherty xxx
