Welcome to Panthers.
We are Year 6 and our teacher is Miss Holden.
Our topic this term is WW1.
We will particularly be focusing on the big questions:
Should animals have been used in war?
Would we have won WW1 if we had not used animals?
We will be evaluating evidence throughout the term to come to an ultimate decision. We will let you know how we get on.
In Literacy we are basing our work around Michael Morpurgo's Warhorse.
We will be doing PE on Wednesdays and Fridays; please ensure your child has a full - labelled - PE kit with them in school at all times.
Homework will be handed out on Fridays; this will consist of a list of spellings and a Maths task. In addition to this, children are expected to read every night, or as often as possible.
Panthers are also expected to keep up to date with their times tables (even if on white wrist band). They will be tested at random throughout the year.
Every term, a home learning activity sheet, related to our topic, is sent home. Children are expected to complete at least 2 or 3 activities from the list; or complete another activity of their choice - as long as it is related to our topic.
