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.
Here is a summary of some of the work we will be completing in the Spring term:
We are starting the year by looking at biographies. We are reading parts of Roald Dahl's 'Boy' as well as biographies from other famous and influential people such as Serena Williams and Alan Turing.
We are going to produce some excellent writing and we are really focussing on our spelling, grammar and punctuation.
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 looking at some tricky algebra puzzles, recapping on some written and mental methods and working out how to translate and reflect shapes. We will look at some fun problem solving this year and will use practical equipment to help us.
'Amazon Adventure' is our main topic this term. We are combining this topic with Art, DT and Computing.
Our Art will be based on Earth and Space. We will create mini solar systems!
Science: Our topic for this half term is 'Earth and Space'.
R.E.: We will look at non-religious world views this half term.
Music- We will be learning about music from different eras.
Our PE lessons will be on a Tuesday and a Wednesday.
Tuesday= Gymnastics in the hall- pumps needed please.
Wednesday= Tag Rugby
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 task set online on Rising Stars or Deepening Understanding. We will also have a short grammar task on Deepening Understanding.
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.
