Happy New Year!
In our team we have 25 fantastic children, Mr Alfieri (Class Teacher), Ms Dimbleby (Teaching Assistant), Mr Aust (PE Coach) and Mrs Honerez (French Teacher). What an awesome bunch!
Barry—This term's Barry topic will be responsibility. The children in the Eagles class will take on more responsibility this term and will be expected to be organised and prepared for their learning. This will be a great term to prepare our team for the transition to secondary school!
Homework—In Year 6 we have a few pieces of homework each week. Every week we will always have spellings and times tables to work on. Tests will be on Fridays. Remember, don't just practise for the tests! There is no point at all! A little bit of work each night will ensure that the spellings and times tables facts go into your long term memory. The score itself isn't actually important; what is important is how much you have improved.
In addition to the homework previously set throughout Year 6, the children will also be given a small piece of homework to complete each night based on learning that we have done in school. The homework will either be grammar or maths based!
PE—This term your PE sessions will be on Tuesdays (Mr Aust) and Thursdays (Mr Alfieri).
PPA—I will be out of the class on a Tuesday afternoon and you will have French (which will be with Mrs Honorez) and PE!
Topic - South America
This term, our topic is going to be South America! The children in the class will be set an awesome project to complete over the term and they will be asked to present their project to the rest of the school and their parents in the final week! I can't wait!
We will begin the project with some fact finding and learn all about the countries in South America; this will include their location, climate, rivers, animals, plant life and physical and human features.
The children will then use South America as a focus to learn all about human impact on Planet Earth. We will learn about how we can help to look after the environment and consider how we can inspire others to do the same thing!
With only 5 weeks to get our projects completed, I suppose we better get started!
Feliz Ano Novo,
