Juniper Class - Year 6
Welcome to Class Juniper
Welcome to Class Juniper! Our teacher is Miss Jones. Mrs Noble is our Teaching Assistant.
We are looking forward to seeing you all for your final year at Town Green!
Here is a summary of some of the work we will be completing in the Autumn term:
We are starting the year by looking at 'Windrush Child' by Benjamin Zephaniah.
We will also look at poetry and non-fiction texts throughout the term.
Reading is very important to us and we will read every day.
Maths: We will be looking at written and mental methods, sequences, co-ordinates and fractions this term. We will look at some fun problem solving this year and will use practical equipment to help us. We will be working on our reasoning skills.
Local Black History- an interesting new topic looking at our local area and its relation to the transatlantic slave trade. We will be looking at different artefacts.
We will be studying coastal towns within our local area.
Our Art will be linked to our Geography, looking at coastal art work and different artists.
Science: Our topic for this half term is 'Living things and their habitats'.
We will be designing and creating fairground rides linked to our Geography topic!
Music- Mrs Houghton will take us for Music on Wednesday afternoons.
Our PE lessons will be on a Tuesday and a Wednesday.
Tuesday- Gymnastics in the hall. PE kits and pumps please
Wednesday= Outside with Mrs Houghton
We will come to school in our PE kits with trainers on these days. We do not need to bring our uniform- we will stay in our kits all day.
Our important things to remember:
Homework will be set on a Friday.
English will be a reading or Grammar task set online on Deepening Understanding.
Maths will also be set on Deepening Understanding and will be based on the topic we have looked at in class that week.
We will also have an independent reading- we need to record what we are currently reading in our Reading records.
This homework will be due in on Wednesday.
Online weekly Spellings homework will be set on Spelling Frame. You will be able to view your spellings on Class Dojo. We will have our spelling test on Friday.
