Welcome to Darwin Class!
Our year so far has certainly been a busy one! Year 6 have achieved so much and have taken part in many exciting activities and events including: making Harvest deliveries around the village, forming brilliant bonds with their Wright Class (Year R) buddies, a thought-provoking and excellent trip to Canterbury Cathedral, a lovely ‘Come and Learn’ afternoon with family members, putting on a wonderful tea party for our brilliant school volunteers, singing Christmas carols for the residents of Woodchurch House, a fabulous 'Dressing up for Digits Day' and all this whilst still working hard in lessons and producing some top quality work!
Please feel free to pop in and look at some of the wonderful work that your children have created last term. On display outside of the classroom, you’ll find newspaper articles about Operation Dynamo, ‘Blackout’ poetry and lots more!
This term our topic is focused on world biomes and vegetation belts and we will be exploring our topic in Geography, Art and D.T. lessons. We will also be able to link back to our Science topic from last term as we think about how animals and plants are suited to their environments.
This term in English we are focusing on ‘Blue Planet II'. We are using clips from the series as well as the book which accompanies it. We will be writing non chronological reports based on an underwater creature and then creating persuasive writing based on plastic pollution in the sea. Darwin Class are also aiming to write to Sir David Attenborough and if we are lucky enough to receive a reply, it will be uploaded on our page. Watch this space..!
In Science, we will be learning about 'Animals including humans' where we will be learning about the human body. We will be thinking about Christianity in R.E. Some members of the class are looking forward to taking part in Bikeablity, Level 2 this term.
Below are some websites that can help with times tables practice, as well as some links to sites with information about world biomes.
Please encourage your child to keep using Times Table Rock Stars. We have already seen a significant improvement in rapid recall of multiplication facts and I would like this to further continue and improve. Well done Darwin Class!
We have many exciting things to look forward to this term and it will certainly be a memorable one!
