Welcome to Year 6
Class Teacher: Ms Taylor and Ms Cole
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Westwood
The start of the new school year has been very busy for Year 6. We have been learning about growth mindset. We have learnt that our brains can grow and learn new skills if we try hard and accept challenges. Having a growth mindset means that we do not give up easily and that we learn to accept mistakes and use them to improve.
In Science we are learning about evolution and inheritance. We carried out an exercise to help us understand which of our characteristics are passed on in our genes and which are determined by our environment.
In History we are going to be studying World War II and we are looking forward to our visit to Steam in Gloucester. We will be experiencing what it was like to be an evacuee in the war.
Below is a useful website to help your child improve their mental maths.
It is designed to be used as a daily activity and is timed so hopefully you may find it helpful.
