Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome to our class page. Here you will find any information about your home learning tasks, homework, what we have been learning about and any photos of the fun things that have gone on in Year 6!
Current Class Novel
We are currently reading 'Wonder' by R. J. Palacio. This is a thought-provoking text that makes us think about what it means to be different and how this can be a real strength. We have also noticed how the characters in the text treat Auggie, who has cranio-facial differences and reflected on how we treat others.
Previous Class Novels
Last term we read 'The Wizard of Oz' by L. Frank Baum. This was the focus of our English work on classic narrative literature. It had rich and unusual vocabulary in it and taught us about the importance of valuing what is within us.
We have also read 'Kensuke's Kingdom' by Michael Morpurgo. We enjoyed the dramatic scenes and discovered how powerful a cliffhanger ending is. We also used the book to explore how an author can present characters in different ways and change our opinions over time.
Each week your child will bring home personalised spellings to learn. Children will be tested on a set day during the week and will then be given a new set to learn for the following week.
Please aim to read at least three times a week. Your child can change their book when they arrive at school in the morning.
