Welcome to Shakespeare Class – Year 6
Class Teachers: Miss Dade
TA: Mrs Kevlin
Our topic question this term is ‘Will we ever see the water we drink again?’ We will be looking at The Water Cycle as well as studying rivers. Specifically looking at the features of a river, erosion and deposition, rivers around the world and how we use rivers.
In English we will be focusing on ‘writing to inform’ this half term. We will be reading ‘The Watertower’ by Gary Crew and using this as inspiration to write newspaper reports. In Maths we are going to be looking at ratio, scale factors and angles. In Science we are continuing our topic ‘Evolution and Inheritance’, we will be extending our understanding of inheritance and adaptation. We will also be looking further into evolution and the evidence surrounding this.
Our PE days this term will be Wednesday and Thursday. We will be continuing to have tennis lessons at the tennis club on Wednesday and on Thursdays will be doing orienteering on the school field. It is important that children always have a full PE kit. These items should be clearly named.
