Year 6

A BRILLIANT RETURN TO THE NEW 'NORMAL'

 WELL DONE Y6 - Let's share what you have been up to...

 

WOW - three SHAKESPEARE plays in one week!  Grab your folks and celebrate:

 

* Your analysis of Titania's famous speech to Bottom in A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM (reading objectives)

* A spell of your own to make the three weird sisters of Macbeth reconsider! (writing objectives)

* The fantastic reading of Richard III from Ms Bastide (reading, oracy, knowledge, pleasure, collaboration)

 

TARGETS - individual targets are available on google classroom and be sure to check out our new VIRTUAL 'Moving Forward' rooms next week.  You can catch up in your own time, in school with your friends, independently using teaching input like bitesized, Oak etc... 

 

SHARE these videos and photos below with your parents and carers - they will inevitably be proud of your 'come-back;'  If they don't know what you are talking about - explain it to them!

TOPIC OVERVIEW:

YEAR SIX AUTUMN 1 – ENDANGERED ANIMALS

In year 6 this half term we will be studying ‘ENDANGERED ANIMALS.’  Our class text is ‘Can we save the tiger?’ by Martin Jenkins but we will also study excerpts from Kipling’s, ‘The Jungle Book,’ and ‘Lord of the Forest,’ by Caroline Pitcher and Jackie Morris

These texts provide an exciting stimulus for all types of writing and the more knowledge you acquire the more your vocabulary choices for writing expand.  So be an active learner and get a head start by finding out which animals are at risk of extinction – why they are critically endangered – and what we can do to help.  You have multiple resources at your fingertips when you search wisely using the internet.
