Westonzoyland Primary School ‘Raising Aspirations’

Hobby – Mrs Meyers (Year 6)

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.

The Hobby Team

The Hobby Team 1 Mrs Meyers (class teacher)
The Hobby Team 2 Mrs Legg (teaching assistant)

Our learning theme this term is:

 

The Ancients

 

See below to find out how we are learning about this in the different curriculum areas.

PE

 

Our PE day is currently Tuesday. However please make sure your child has their P.E. kits in every day in case of timetable changes. Could all clothing be clearly named also to avoid anything getting lost. 

 

Homework

 

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.

19th March- we have written our own chants to Ra (the Ancient Egyptian sun god); written these down with musical notation and performed them using untuned percussion. We are getting very good at recognising crotchets, quavers and semi-quavers although Mrs Meyers' favourite note is the rest!

Friday 9th March - World Book Day 2018.

19th February 2018 - Mystery Monday. In our box this time we had: microscopes and slides, a lux meter, infra-red thermometer and a sound meter. We conducted experiments around the school a which classroom were the noisiest, the darkest, the coldest, etc. Then we produced bar graphs to show our results to the whole school.
