Minotaur

Welcome to Minotaur Class!

Miss Lembo, Mrs Dawes and the Year 6 pupils. 

 

 

Hola Espana!

 

We begin the year with our whole-school 'Hola, Espana!' topic with our Spanish tasting session on Thursday 6th September. Parents/carers are invited to join us from 3pm to sample some of our delicious concoctions! During the topic, we will also be: exploring the fascinating work of the Spanish architect, Gaudi; indulging in some Spanish dance and music; learning about the history of Spain, such as the Spanish Civil War and the Spanish Armada; and developing Atlas skills to study the country's location. 

 

In English our fictional text will be a losing tale and for our non-fiction writing we will be exploring balanced arguments. Our whole-class guided reading text will be one of Michael Morpurgo's classics: Friend or Foe. In Year 6, we expect all pupils to be reading for pleasure outside of school on a daily basis. Don't forget to pop your signed planner into the messages box on Monday mornings to gain your extra 5 Dojos if you have read 5 times at home!

 

During Maths this half-term, we will be concentrating on securing place value knowledge, negative numbers and mixed operations.

 

PE during this topic will be on Wednesdays (football with Miss Lembo) and Thursdays (dance with Miss Lembo). Please ensure the correct PE kit is in school on these days.

 

Each Friday, all pupils will receive homework which will link to the week's learning. Returned homework should be dropped into the 'Homework' drawer in the classroom by the Wednesday of the following week.
