Minotaur Class

Miss Lembo, Mrs Dawes and the Year Six pupils

Welcome back! We hope you had a spectacular summer and are ready for an unforgettable year in Minotaur Class!

 

HT1- Where is the Love?

During our first topic we will be circulating some excellent ideas as we learn all about the body and the heart. We will be studying functions of the heart, investigating the importance of looking after our bodies through diet, mental wellbeing and exercise, and even completing a heart dissection! In Computing we will be finding out about how to stay safe online, an issue which is incredibly important these days. In our creative lessons, we look forward to using clay and watercolour to produce anatomically accurate pieces, whilst in DT we'll be cooking up a storm when we look at healthy balanced diets and try making some healthy meals of our own!

 

In Maths this half-term we will be studying place value, mixed operations (BODMAS) and negative numbers. There are a number of links at the bottom of the class page on the school website relating to our work in class.

 

Our English work will link directly to our topic: we will be exploring and writing our own explanation texts and planning some descriptive stories as we compose losing tales.  During each topic, we will study a novel as a class, concentrating on the key skills of retrieval, inference and word meanings. Our class read for our first topic is 'Pig Heart Boy' by Malorie Blackman, an emotive, thought-provoking story of a teenage boy whose illness leaves him with a difficult decision to face.

 

Spellings are tested and given out each Friday. These are the spellings which can be found in pupils' home school diaries and on the class page. Pupils will be given a list of words (which all have a similar spelling pattern or rule) each Friday which they will stick in their diaries.

 

Homework across school this year is heavily focused on three vital areas: reading, spelling and times table knowledge. We have purchased a reading 'SATs buster' book, which is compiled of ten-minute tests, for all Y6 pupils due to the positive feedback from pupils and parents over the past two years. Tests within the book will be set on specific weeks and a reminder of the homework can be found at the bottom of the class page. As the pupils are aware, we expect all Y6 children to be reading for pleasure on a daily basis. We advise that this is a mix of reading to an adult, to another family member or to themselves. Mrs Dawes checks planners every Friday to see who has managed to get their 7 reads recorded in their home school diary. The pupils who achieve this will be awarded 7 points on Class Dojo for that week.
