Juniper Class - Year 6
Meet the Teacher 2021-2022
Welcome to Class Juniper
Welcome to Class Juniper! Our teacher is Miss Jones. Mrs Roberts is our Teaching Assistant. We are so excited to be back at school!
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 a video called 'The Wishgranter' and getting straight in to some longer pieces of writing! We are then going to start our detective writing unit.
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 start the term by recapping on place value and looking at our mental and written calculation skills. We will look at some fun problem solving this year and will use practical equipment to help us.
'Anglo-saxons and Vikings' is our main topic this term. It is an exciting topic to study! There is so much to find out and learn.
Our Art will be based on The Vikings. We will create some Viking shields.
Science: Our topic for this half term is 'Forces and Electricity'.
R.E.: We will look at Christianity this half term.
Music- We will be learning about cyclic patterns and creating our own compositions.
Our Games lessons will be on a Monday and a Wednesday. We will be practising our athletic and hockey skills. We will come to school in our PE kits with tracksuits and trainers on this day. 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 task set online on Rising Stars.
Maths will be set on MathsWatch which we have all used before :)
We will also have an independent reading task- we will take a picture of the book we are currently reading and write a couple of sentences to describe what we have read. This will be posted on Class Dojo.
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.
