Juniper Class - Year 6
Welcome to Class Juniper
Welcome to Class Juniper! Our teacher is Miss Jones. Mrs Whitney is our Teaching Assistant.
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 imagery within poems. We will then read detective stories and write our own!
Reading is very important to us and we will read every day. Our class novel is 'High Rise Mystery' and we will read a variety of texts in our guided reading sessions.
Maths: This week we are looking at shape and recapping number skills. From next week, we will start our brand new Maths scheme! Our first area to look at is place value.
We have started our 'Invaders and Settlers' unit, studying Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings.
Our Art topic is called 'Amazon Art'.
Science: Our topic for this half term is 'Forces'. Next half term we will look at 'Electricity'.
Music: Our Music topic is Hip Hop and we will be composing our own raps!
Our PE lessons will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Wednesday= Outdoor PE with Mrs Houghton.
Thursday- Dance unit- The Haka. In the school hall.
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. Please check Class Dojo for your task.
Maths will be TT Rockstars.
English will be to practise spellings for our weekly spelling test.
We will also have an independent reading- we need to record what we are currently reading in our Reading records. There is a reward of extra break time if we do this.
This homework will be due in on Wednesday.
