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 term is:
LOST IN THE WOODS
See below to find out how we are learning about this in the different curriculum areas.
In our English lessons, we are reading Running Wild by Michael Morpurgo. This is about the Indonesian tsunami of 2004. We will be writing a variety of texts to do with the book, including stories with flashbacks, descriptive writing, rhyming poetry, recounts and persuasive writing.
We are starting this term learning about place value when dealing with numbers up to (and often beyond) ten million. We will then be moving onto addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, working with large numbers and decimals. We will have a daily focus on our times tables, reasoning and the four operations to consolidate these skills.
We are using the book The Wonder Garden as a focus for our topic work, learning about: maps, classification of animals and plants, biomes and habitats and using art in the style of different artists.
For our computing lessons, we are going to be creating simulation games for children in Eagle Class. We will be using scratch to program these. Here are some example simulation games.
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 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.
