Welcome to Falcons!

Year 6 Falcons

 

Welcome to our Class Blog!

Come check out our amazing journey of learning! Throughout the year, we will be updating the progress so please feel free to see what we're doing and how your child is getting on! 

 

Class teachers: Mrs Jarvis and Mr Myland

Teaching Assistant: Miss Everett

 

Here are some fab links to help your child with their learning:

 

BBC Bitesize KS2

A good website which covers all subjects we teach throughout the year. I suggest this is your go-to website for understanding the vocabulary that is used in the curriculum.

DoodleMaths

We use DoodleMaths as our online homework for Maths. It's a great tool for children to learn a range of new skills, and this AI software changes difficulty levels depending on how they find the questions. A 10 minute, short, sharp approach works perfectly for this!

 

 

Spelling Shed

 

Children are given their weekly spellings on Spelling Shed.  They practise these at home using online games 5 times a week gradually increasing the difficulty of the game each time.   Click on the logo below to take you to the login.

Term 1 and 2

Homefront.

 

Step back in time to war torn Britain as you learn all about how our area was affected by World War 2.  Find out how children's lives were affected in the local area as evacuees arrived from cities to escape the bombing.  We will learn in depth about the struggles of daily life during the war through our English work as we dive deep into an immersive topic.

 

In science we will learn about how we control and manipulate light to our advantage in devices such as searchlights and signal lamps.  We will also use our knowledge of computer programming to develop automated systems to help with the war effort.

 

Brace yourselves for a fascinating journey through a critical period in our history.  Remember, turn out that light- don't you know there's a war on?

Week 2: Brian Moses visit

On Wednesday, Brian Moses virtually visited our school! He shared some of his fantastic poems with us and talked about his father being in WW2. Some of his poems even used drums as a background beat. He then let us ask him questions about his life and poetry - it was a fabulous experience.

Week 1:

Poet visit

 

On Thursday we welcomed the poet Joshua Seigal into school.  In his workshop we learnt how to construct poems, even if we weren't sure how to begin.  He entertained us with enthusiastic reading of his poetry and we had a fabulous day.

Week 1:

Proving that light travels in a straight line.

 

Today we investigated light.  Using our prior knowledge we developed tests to show that light travels in straight lines.  We created filters that made a light ray that we were able to follow and show that light from a torch travels in a straight line.
