In Year 6, we are really developing responsibility for ourselves and others. We have lots of opportunities to work independently and let our personalities shine.
Our curriculum is linked across subjects to make it meaningful, purposeful and exciting. We will upload each theme overview so that you can see what teaching and learning will be taking place.
Please feel free to drop in and see Mrs Tomlin if you have any concerns or just a question or two. We will always welcome offers from parents to support in the classroom, whether for the occasional day or on a more regular basis.
A few reminders
This term we will be learning about Ancient Greece. We will start with the theme 'Gods and Monsters.' As part of our learning we will be reading and discussing examples of good quality Greek Myths whereby the hero/God overcomes a monster - such as Theseus and the Minotaur and Perseus and Medusa. We will use these models, and newly acquired writing skills, to write our own narratives. We will be exploring and researching facts about Gods and Monsters of Ancient Greece and using our Art and Design skills to portray Greek mythical monsters.
Ancient Greece - Inspiration Event
We have taken part in some wonderful inspiration activities to enthuse us for the learning ahead. Have a look at the photos below, which show some of the fun we have had in our Greek cafe and transporting ourselves to Ancient Greece using our amazing green screen technology.

It has been lovely to welcome our new Year 6 children to Class Turquoise today. They took part in a fabulous team challenge - Super Spaghetti Structures. All of the children worked well together and seemed to enjoy the day. I am very much looking forward to teaching them in the new academic year.
