Welcome to Year 6!
This half term we are covering the following topics:
Science- Evolution and Inheritance.
In this topic, we will be investigating how living things have changed over time and that fossils provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago, begin to identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution.
Geography- Get Up and Go Greeks!
In this topic we will be researching Greek Gods and Goddesses, looking at a range of artefacts to discover what life was like in Ancient Greece and investigating the impact of the Ancient Greeks on life today.
We will be covering the units - Gym Sequences and Pilates.

THINGS TO REMEMBER THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
Please try to read every night at home. This can be a reading book from school, a book you already have at home or a library book. It is still really important for your child to expand their vocabulary and develop their reading stamina. They should be reading for at least 30 minutes every night.
Literacy homework will be sent home in a book. It will be set on a Friday and is due in on the following Thursday. We expect all children to complete their homework and return it on time. Please speak to a member of the Year 6 team if your child needs help with their homework. We offer support at lunchtime for any child who needs it.
Numeracy homework will be sent home in a book and the children will also be set a mymaths task each week. Homework is set on a Friday and is due in on the following Thursday. We expect all children to complete their homework. Please speak to a member of the Year 6 team if your child needs help with their homework. We offer the use of computers at lunchtime if your child can't complete their mymaths homework at home. Passwords for mymaths are inside your child's homework diary.
Spellings are set on a Monday and are tested on a Friday. The children's spelling scores will be sent home by text on a Friday so you can see how your child is doing.
PE Sessions- are on a Tuesday and a Friday afternoon. Please ensure that full PE kits are in school and earrings are removed for these sessions.
