Mrs L Martin
Welcome to Year 6!
Croeso i Blwyddyn 6!
I hope that you have all had a fabulous Summer break and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to this new academic year!
September is always a very exciting time and we need to make sure that we are all well prepared for the start of term. So here are a few helpful pieces of information for you!
P.E will be on Tuesdays - Please ensure that P.E kits are in school every Tuesday. P.E kits will be brought home at the end of every Tuesday due to a lack of storage space for them.
A reading book needs to be brought to school every day!
You also need to make sure that you have a black biro, pencil and ruler (30cm) for class work!
During this term the class will be studying the topic ‘Alchemy Island’. Within this topic we will be learning all about the ‘Changes of State’ that can take place within materials. The children will investigate creating mixtures (predicting and observing what happens when materials are mixed with others) and also will explore processes that can be used in order to separate mixtures (discussing whether a change is reversible or irreversible).
In English, pupils will be developing their understanding and writing of Non chronological reports and Biography/Recount writing. Pupils will focus on writing Non Chronological reports about a hobby of choice and about a ‘Modern Mixture’ (Topic Link). Biography writing will involve pupils writing a brief biography for a famous person of choice and also for a famous scientist. Recount writing will be linked with our topic.
In Science, we will be exploring the properties of materials, reversible and irreversible changes. Within this topic, pupils will have the opportunity to conduct practical investigations in order to discover which materials change and how they change.
Dosbarth Mrs Martin will also be reflecting on Christian beliefs and how these affect people’s everyday lives. Pupils will also be exploring the structure of the Church in Wales.
