Welcome to 6C

Welcome to 6C
 
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come to speak to me, I will be available at the beginning (8:35am) and at the end of the day (after 3.40 pm.)
 
Homework
 
Homework is set every Monday and uploaded to google classroom and class dojo. There is one maths and one English, usually one electronic and one paper homework to be completed. Homework is due in the following Monday.
Daily reading homework is expected to be completed and children are encouraged to complete times table and spelling work online. If your child is having issues completing homework on time, please contact me. 
 
Reading
 
Children are encouraged to read daily and record reviews in their reading logs once they have completed their books.

We also complete Accelerated Reader Quizzes to celebrate when we have finished our books - this helps us to build up our very own word count and work towards becoming "Millionaire Readers". 

Children are also invited to borrow books from our class library in addition to their school reading books, so they can read a variety of different text types.

 
PE
 
Indoor PE will be Wednesday afternoon and outdoor PE is Friday afternoon. Please send your child into school in their appropriate PE kits for their PE lessons. This term children will be learning skills in gymnastics and Lacrosse.
 
Topics
 
In our science topic we have been learning about air pollution, in terms of what causes it and how to reduce it.
 
In humanities (geography based topic) we are focusing on North America. Children are using maps to focus on environmental regions, key physical/human characteristics and major cities. 
 
In art we have been focused on the work of Yayoi Kusama, who specialises in using polka dots in her artwork.
