Welcome to Lion Class
We are Year 6 and our teacher is Mrs Reeve.
This term our topic is 'Frozen Kingdom'. Welcome to the planet's coldest lands...incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly. As part of the topic we will be finding out about both the Arctic and Antarctica and comparing these two poles.
In Literacy we will be looking at the 'Frozen Planet' documentary and writing our own versions. We will also be looking at the tragic events of The Titanic and how the passengers reacted.
Finally we will be writing our own narrative pieces set in these extreme landscapes.
Our class book is 'Sky Song' by Abi Elphinstone and we will be doing lots of work around this book in our Guided Reading lessons.
A few reminders
PE days are on Wednesday and Thursday. Please make sure that the children have their PE kit in school at all times (especially on these days). It is also really helpful if the PE kit is named.
Reader of the week is awarded on a Friday. Please continue to support your children with their reading at home. It is also important for the children to continue to practise their times-tables whenever possible (even if they have achieved their white wristband).
Homework will be set on a Friday and will be due in the following Wednesday. This will usually consist of spellings and a maths or reading activity. If Topic homework is set, this will sometimes have a different deadline.
Some children are going swimming this term on a Wednesday. Please make sure the children bring their swimming kits on this day.
