Mrs Percy Year 6
Welcome to the Year 6 page.
As we head into spring term, I am looking forward to seeing you all continue to make amazing progress in your learning. During this term, we will: continue to learn about the Battle of Britain (and the blitz) in history; learn about electricity and the heart and circulation in science; and begin a brand new geography topic on rivers. We are reading a new book called ‘Blitzed’ in our reading lessons and in maths we will be consolidating our understanding of decimals and percentages. Lots to do!
- Homework is given out every Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. It is really important that all homework is completed on time.
- Our PE days are Tuesdays (KABs) and Thursdays (Coach Dave) and children should come to school in sports kits on these days.
We absolutey loved this week in school! We were given the design brief to ctreate a model playground and had to come up with our own success criteria. We designed, then made our own model playhgrounds using new skills such as sawing with a junior hacksaw and using the glue guns to create our struictures. Once finished, some of our KS1 childre helped us to judge the final prducts against the success criteria.
Science: Fossil Hunt
We really enjoyed our science topic on ‘Evolution and Inheritance’: from our bird beak investaigation to going on a fossil treasure hunt around school, we learened so much about how animals adapt and evolve over time.
History: Battle of Britain (WW2)
We started this fascinating topic by constructing our own scaled timelines of key events from WW2. It was trickier than we first thought, but it helped us to see the Battle of Britain within the context of the whole war.
