Welcome to Hobby Class
This page is intended to give you an overview of the routines in Year 6, together with useful information. We will also post photographs and examples of work throughout the year. We hope that you will find it useful.
Our learning theme this half term is:
English: This half term we are reading and studying Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian. We are going to be responding to the story by writing character descriptions and sections of the story using speech. We will be thinking about characterisation and how writers can 'show not tell' aspects of character.
Maths: We are studying place value and the four operations this half term. We will be learning to use and apply formal written methods.
Science: We are thinking about forces and how different mechanisms can affect the force used.
History: We are learning about the Romans and their invasion of Britain.
Our PE day is currently Tuesday. Swimming/ additional PE currently takes place on a Wednesday. However please make sure your child has their P.E. kits in every day in case of timetable changes. Please ensure that all clothing is labelled clearly.
Homework will be set every week and children should spend about 30 minutes per evening on this. There is no set homework day in order to help the children get used to routines similar to secondary schools. Homework will be written in their homework diaries and each piece will have at least a week to complete.
The children are expected to read every day, and record this in their reading records. Children in Hobby are allowed to read to themselves and record it themselves.
