Year 6 2020 - 2021

Miss Dempsey

Hello and welcome to our class page for: 

6G and 6D

In Year 6 Mr Gibson and Miss Madden will be working together in 6G and Miss Dempsey and Mr McNeill in class 6D.

We would like to give you all a warm welcome back to your learning, it was lovely to see you all, albeit very briefly! Unfortunately, as we’re sure you are aware; the government have made the decision to close schools at the current time. This means we will be moving to remote learning on Google Classroom. For information on how to access Google Classroom follow the link below:
(You will need to use your child's "@ashburymeadow" Email address and their password to access their class page.)

On this page, you will find information about current topics, news, updates regarding special events and Knowledge Organisers corresponding to the relevant topics for each term. As we have moved to remote learning, teachers will be posting daily work on Google Classroom which children must complete. These activities will reflect as closely as possible what children would be doing if they were in school. 

PE for year 6 pupils is on a Monday and pupils are expected to wear their PE kits to school on that day. This consists of trainers, t-shirt, school jumper and tracksuit bottoms, leggings or shorts. This will now be posted on Google Classroom as a remote learning activity.

Homework and spellings are set electronically for pupils on Friday using the Google classroom. Any pupils who cannot access Google classroom will have paper copies. Please remember pupils are expected to read for 30 minutes a day and with an adult at least once a week. All reading should be recorded in their reading records.

Pupils have been given their login details to access our school learning apps at home. They can use Lexia to revise their reading skills while Mathletics and Time Table Rockstars can be used to practise their mathematical skills and times tables. (Find attached instructions on how to access Lexia from home).

This half term we will be looking at: 

English: We will be reading Call of the Wild by Jack London to help us produce a piece of writing focussed on creating tension. 


Maths: Our topic for maths will be looking at fractions, decimals and percentages. We will learn how to convert different amounts between the three different amounts.

Geography: Natural Resources - In this topic we will explore the Earth's natural resources, how they occur, where they are found and what they are all used for.

Science: Living things and their habitats - In this topic we will explore living things and their habitats. This will focus on using classification keys to classify different living things inspired by the work of Carl Linnaeus.

Art: We will be focussing on set designs inspired by the work of Es Devlin. This will look at creating scenes for different purposes. This will use a range of resources that will be adapted for learning at home.

We look forward to the year ahead with you and are confident you will enjoy Year 6!
