Year 6 - Oak

Welcome to year 6 - and Oak & Rowan classes!

 

Following on from our autumn WW2 topics, this Spring Term, our topic is 'Earth'. How are Volcanoes formed? What are Tectonic Plates and why are they important? What is the Ring of Fire? How are people affected by natural disasters? These are questions that will be answered in the first half of term. During the second part of the topic, we will be looking closely at the Galapagos Islands, investigating evolution theory and studying the art, literature and scientists of the Victorian era - including an inspirational trip to Morwellham Quay. 

 

In PE, we will be taking part in some gymnastics and tag rugby, moving towards some competitive games towards the end of the sessions.

 

As many of our activities are shared across year 6 (Rowan & Oak), the photos and updates on this page will apply to both classes. Please have a look below for photos of some of the things we have been doing so far! Keep checking back for updates...

Trips Planned for Year 6 (2018/2019):

 

Autumn Term: Porthcurno camping trip

Spring Term: Morwellham Quay trip

Summer Term: Bristol trip

 

Weekly Update

18th January 2019

Dear parents / guardian of Oak & Rowan,

 

This Week

Over the course of this week, we have continued to learn about how to write a myth - next week, we'll be planning and writing our own. Maths has been focused on place value and understanding decimal places. We've moved on from tectonic plates and now understand the different types of volcano and how they are formed. In our tag rugby session, we developed our passing techniques further, while also adding in a dummy pass to fool the opposition! We looked at different types of balance with a partner in gym: push and pull.

 

Your child should have come home with a letter for a trip to Morwellham Quay; please return it as soon as possible so we can finalise bookings!

 

Homework

Spellings: revision of how to form plural nouns

Maths: arithmetic

Reading: please ensure that your child takes their book home and brings it back to school every day! Please encourage your child to read aloud.

 

Your child has the year 5/6 spelling list. Please help them to identify any words they are unable to spell and ensure that they practise them!

Thank you,

Mr Craig & Mrs Everitt

Welcome to Year 6!

 

Our topics for the summer term will be: Ancient Egypt

 

The Ancient Egyptians are a fascinating topic to study, and we will be finding out all about how they lived and what they did. We'll also be writing some horror stories connected to the topic. Relating our science to our topic means that we will be looking at the human body (and how the Egyptians preserved it!). For PE, we'll be developing our hand-eye coordination through cricket as well as working on our athletics. Later in the term, we'll also be trying our hands at Frisbee! Our focus in art will be on the use of colour and clay to produce Egypian Canopic Jars.

 

Photos from the previous term are still below, but keep an eye out for more photos as our topics progress!
