Welcome to Year 6 Oak Class!
What an exciting year we are having as we continue the journey of your final year at primary school. Year 6 will be such a fantastic year full of adventures, creating memories and achieving lots of special things together.
How are we halfway through the year already?! Spring 2 is a busy and jam-packed half term further developing our love of learning!
In English, along with some SATs practicing, we will be looking at Darwin's Dragons by Lindsay Galvin. This historical fiction text set in 1835 follows cabin boy Syms Covington on the voyage of a lifetime to the Galapagos Islands with the world famous scientist Charles Darwin. This novel links brilliantly to our new science topic of Evolution and Inheritance.
In RE, we will be exploring who Jesus was, who Jesus is today and who he is for different faiths and to different people.
Our wider curriculum topic this half term will be art. looking at painting and digital art, linked to Wassily Kandinsky and Joan Miro.
Please continue to support your child with their learning as much as possible. Lots of reading at home has the power to help your child reach their full potential. Please also try and mark your child's homework with them at home - this has far more impact than me marking it.
