Summer 2 - Human influences on the environment
Our topic for Summer 2 is 'human influences on the environment.' We will be learning about the impact humans have on the planet by looking at topics like: climate change and global temperature; the ozone layer; renewable and non-renewable sources of energy; ways to save energy; local community issues and anti-social behaviour. We will be focusing on using a wide range of skills from across the curriculum to support our learning.
We will continue to maintain our garden during this half term. We have plenty of things to plant and we are also very busy keeping the weeds at bay. We are also looking at ways to make the garden more manageable for future use. Every Tuesday afternoon we will have an opportunity to carry out work on the garden, so please dress appropriately.
We will be using a range of ICT equipment in Year 6. Pupils use hwb and google classroom to complete different part of their work. We also use Class dojo to show the pupil's work and communicate with parents so please let me know if you do not have access to this. If you have any concerns or questions please come and speak to me.
It is so important that by Year 6 the children are more confident with their times tables. They are used daily in some way or other and your child will benefit greatly if they are encouraged to practise them regularly so they have a quick recall of facts. This can be done through writing them down, chanting them or playing games! There are lots of great games online that your child could benefit from. One of my favourite is Hit the Button created by Top Marks.
Try it for yourself!
Our topic for the Summer term is 'Trefnu Gweithgareddau' (Arranging Activities)
We will be doing lots of work and challenging ourselves to use lots of past tenses and 3rd person sentences. Gwaith anodd!
We use Welsh as part of all our lessons and throughout the day, not just in Welsh lessons. The children love playing a range of games during the daily 'Helpwr Heddiw' sessions. Please see some of the sentences patterns below that we will be using in our lessons.
All children have a school email address and a Hwb account. It would be fantastic if they do any extra work at home, they could then email it to my account and we can share what they've done.
Due to the current situation pupils must bring their own snack in every day, if required.
It is so important that your child wears their school uniform to school every day. It has a number of benefits, such as your child feeling a part of the school community. We have a reward system in school called the VIP of the week (Very Important Pupil). Every class has a new VIP each week and they have earned the right to wear their own clothes to school and sit on the bench during assembly. It is a special week for that child and it is clear for the adults and visitors to the school to see who has been working hard. So, if your child is wearing non-uniform and they are not VIP, it will take away the special reward that the VIP has earned for that week.
Only trainers are required for PE. There is no need to bring in a spare change of clothes.
Homework is set on Class Dojo - the completed work can be uploaded to the pupils' portfolio. If you do not have access to Class Dojo please come and speak to me.
Due to the current climate reading books will be kept in class, so pupils can use these every day with their teacher. Unfortunately, these books can not be bought home at this time. As well as reading individually, we are also reading once a week in GGR sessions and spending the rest of the week doing lots of activities that develop our independent reading skills. If you want to practise more at home, visit Oxford Owl to access free books...
