Welcome to Year 6
Class Teacher: Ms Taylor and Ms Cole
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Westwood
In Year 6 we have started our World War II topic and have been finding out about how the war started. We have put the major events on a timeline and painted some ‘Blitz’ pictures. We are looking forward to our visit to the steam railway in Gloucester, where we will take part in an ‘Evacuation Experience’ day.
On the ‘Harvest Celebration’ day last Friday, we focused on the impact importing food can have on the environment. We looked at where the food we eat comes from and worked out how many air miles it took for the food to get to our plates. We designed posters to encourage people to buy locally and to reduce the impact of the food we buy.
In Science, we have been learning about inheritance, particularly the characteristics that we inherit from our parents but also how siblings from the same family may vary. We played some fun card games that made us think about the things we inherit and don’t inherit from our parents.
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.
