Welcome to our exciting class page! Here you'll be able to find out about all the work that we do in school and photographs of all the fun we've been having!
Welcome to year 6! I hope everyone has had a fantastic summer and are ready to make some great memories! This term our main topic is ‘Ancient Greeks’. We will be learning all about the Gods and Goddess, the Olympics, leisure time and the many excellent myths. We will also be reading the fantastic book by Rick Riordan, ‘Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief’.
Wow! I cannot believe we are at the end of the second week of a new school year! Olympia class have made a fantastic start to year 6 and I am very much looking forward teaching and getting to know them better!
In literacy, we have been working on writing informal persuasive letters and using exciting synonyms and antonyms to engage the reader.
Ask your children to give you a definition of a synonym and then give you some examples for different colours.
We are working extremely hard to increase our vocabulary to help up-level our sentences. Each week we have a word of the week that the children are encouraged to use in context.
So, our word of the week this week was...
Talk to your child about this word and how they have managed to place it into their writing.
In maths, we have been reading and writing numbers up to 10 million, determining the value of digits, ordering and comparing larger numbers. We have been working on our reasoning skills in order to explain and prove our answers. This then shows a thorough understanding of the method we are working on.
We have welcomed the younger children to our school and have taken our buddy duties very seriously, ensuring all new starters were happy and settled during their first week at school!
On Friday we enjoyed completing a Joe Wicks The Body Coach Primary School Workout. This term we are working on improving our fitness levels so this is going to gradually build up our stamina, overall performance and skill set.
We enjoyed tasting and trying out some Greek foods. Take a look at the photos below - I think you will easily tell who didn't like the olives!!
